Language: English
Type: Single Standards Download (.pdf)

This Standard was technically approved by the 3D-IC Global Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on July 6, 2018. Available at and in October 2018. 


3DS-IC wafer edge trimming process is a key step for successful wafer thinning after the wafer bonded in the 3DS-IC process.


This Guide provides a feasible approach to perform the wafer edge trimming.


This Document provides guidance for specifying edge trimming and resultant particle count to ensure the successful wafer thinning process after the wafer edge trimming.



This Document covers guidance for specifying wafer edge trimming and resultant particle count to provide a feasible approach in edge trimming process.


The trimming width, depth, and resultant particle size and count are addressed in this Guide. The outcome of this applicable wafer edge trimming approach will be helpful to the subsequent wafer thinning process in the 3DS-IC process.
