Helios G4 PFIB UXe DualBeam for Semiconductors

Highest throughput, highest resolution large area deprocessing, sample preparation and analysis

The Helios G4 PFIB UXe DualBeam™ System provides unique capabilities to enable damage-free delayering of semiconductor devices and advanced failure analysis of 3D packages, in addition to a wide range of other large area FIB processing applications.

The Helios G4 PFIB UXe DualBeam System enables you to:

  • Reveal the finest details using best-in-class Elstar™ SEM Electron Column with high-current UC+ monochromator technology, enabling nanometer SEM image resolution and surface sensitivity.
  • Perform the highest throughput and quality relevant 3D characterization, cross sectioning, and micromachining using the next-generation 2.5μA Xenon Plasma FIB (PFIB 2.0) Column.
  • Achieve high-productivity, curtain-free preparation of large area cross-sections and highest quality TEM lamella with Auto Rocking Mill.
  • Achieve exceptional low-kV ion beam performance, enabling material sensitivity and low sample preparation damage.
  • Experience the most advanced capabilities for electron and ion beam induced deposition and etching on FIB-SEM systems with the optional MultiChem or GIS gas delivery systems.
  • Deprocessing, via proprietary Dx and DE chemistries, of copper metallization in regular and low-k dialectrics. And milling advanced packaging materials with plasma FIB-based chemistries and recipes.
