TeraView and NVIDIA publish joint paper

Feb 11, 2021

TeraView, the pioneer and leader in terahertz technology and solutions, is pleased to announce the joint publication of a paper between teams from NVIDIA and TeraView Ltd in the UK. The paper was presented by Dr. Chuan Zhang from NVIDIA at the virtual Electronics Device Failure Analysis Society (EDFAS) workshop, which was held between December 5-7, 2020.

The paper titled, “Localization and Characterization of Defects for Advanced Packaging Using Novel EOTPR Probing Approach and Simulation”, was the result of a collaboration between the two companies.  This joint publication discusses the capability of TeraView’s patented Electro Optical Terahertz Pulse Reflectometry (EOTPR) technology and its simulation technology, QuickSim, to quickly and accurately isolate fault locations.

Dr Jesse Alton, semiconductor product and applications manager at TeraView commented, “We are pleased to work with NVIDIA to highlight EOTPR’s capabilities in solving challenging issues in advanced IC packaging technology. This paper details the work of NVIDIA engineers and TeraView’s applications personnel to jointly develop a novel method to solve very difficult problems in IC packaging.”

According to Martin Igarashi, TeraView’s VP of Semiconductor Business. “It was exciting to see that the EOTPR technology is gaining greater industry-wide recognition at this virtual workshop. This is demonstrated by not only this paper from NVIDIA, but numerous references to TeraView’s EOTPR technology throughout the virtual workshop.  In addition to developing a novel method of using EOTPR to solve very complex advanced IC packaging problems, this paper highlights that the EOTPR technology detected the failures that a curve tracer had failed to detect.”

Dr Don Arnone, TeraView’s CEO, commented, “The work with NVIDIA and other customers at EDFAS virtual workshop are excellent examples of TeraView’s collaborative approach when working with customers in the industry. We benefit greatly from collaborating with industry leading customers such as NVIDIA, and this in turn helps us to better optimise our unique EOTPR solutions to meet our customers’ needs.”
