New Approaches to Image Processing Based Failure Analysis of Nano-Scale ULSI Devices introduces the reader to transmission and scanning microscope image processing for metal and non-metallic microstructures. Engineers and scientists face the pressing problem in ULSI development and quality assurance: microscopy methods can’t keep pace with the continuous shrinking of feature size in microelectronics. Nanometer scale sizes are below the resolution of light, and imaging these features is nearly impossible even with electron microscopes, due to image noise. This book presents novel "smart" image processing methods, applications, and case studies concerning quality improvement of microscope images of microelectronic chips and process optimization. It explains an approach for high-resolution imaging of advanced metallization for micro- and nanoelectronics. This approach obviates the time-consuming preparation and selection of microscope measurement and sample conditions, enabling not only better electron-microscopic resolution, but also more efficient testing and quality control. This in turn leads to productivity gains in design and development of nano-scale ULSI chips. The authors also present several approaches for super-resolving low-resolution images to improve failure analysis of microelectronic chips. Acquaints users with new software-based approaches to enhance high-resolution microscope imaging of microchip structures Demonstrates how these methods lead to productivity gains in the development of ULSI chips Presents several techniques for the superresolution of images, enabling engineers and scientists to improve their results in failure analysis of microelectronic chips

The Handbook of Silicon Based MEMS Materials and Technologies, Second Edition, is a comprehensive guide to MEMS materials, technologies, and manufacturing that examines the state-of-the-art with a particular emphasis on silicon as the most important starting material used in MEMS. The book explains the fundamentals, properties (mechanical, electrostatic, optical, etc.), materials selection, preparation, manufacturing, processing, system integration, measurement, and materials characterization techniques, sensors, and multi-scale modeling methods of MEMS structures, silicon crystals, and wafers, also covering micromachining technologies in MEMS and encapsulation of MEMS components. Furthermore, it provides vital packaging technologies and process knowledge for silicon direct bonding, anodic bonding, glass frit bonding, and related techniques, shows how to protect devices from the environment, and provides tactics to decrease package size for a dramatic reduction in costs.

Elektromechanische Systeme aus elektrischen, mechanischen und akustischen Teilsystemen haben im Präzisionsgerätebau, in der Sensor- und Aktortechnik, der Elektroakustik sowie in der Medizintechnik eine große Bedeutung. Die Vermittlung einer anschaulichen, ingenieurmäßigen Entwurfsmethode für diese Systeme auf der Grundlage einer schaltungstechnischen Darstellung ist das Hauptanliegen des Fachbuchs. Es ermöglicht einen raschen Einstieg in die mechanischen, akustischen, hydraulischen und thermischen Problemstellungen durch die Anwendung des schaltungstechnischen Grundwissens. Die 2. Auflage wurde neu bearbeitet und didaktisch verbessert. Die Netzwerkbeschreibungsmethodik wurde auf finite Netzwerkelemente und die Kombination mit der Finite-Elemente-Beschreibung (FEM) erweitert: aus der Kombination der Vorteile beider Beschreibungsmethoden ergeben sich neuartige Lösungsansätze vor allem im höheren Frequenzbereich. Das Buch bietet zahlreiche aktuelle Beispiele zum Entwurf von Sensoren und Aktoren sowie von direkt gekoppelten Sensor-Aktor-Systemen. Der Anhang enthält anspruchsvollere Grundlagen zur Signalbeschreibung sowie eine Zusammenstellung wichtiger Materialdaten.
