Semiconductor wafer inspection equipment has gained widespread traction in the global semiconductor manufacturing environment. Manufacturers use the system and the technologies for manual or automated wafer inspection of variety of wafer defects, most notably physical defects and random defects. In bonded wafers, their application improves process control and largely helps in enhancing the quality of semiconductor wafers. Wafer size over the past few decades has increased in dimension, thereby intensifying the need for better wafer inspection. The advent of automated system has made wafer inspection more accurate, reliable, fast, and helped manufacturers overcome the pitfalls of macro defect detection.
