Wafer mapping systems

Si wafer thickness monitoring system

Products > Semiconductor evaluation > Wafer process > Wafer mapping systems

Wafer mapping systems are for real time Si wafer measurement. This system has 3 types based on the mounted stage - Rθ, XY and RθXY.

SF-3Rθ does the mapping at high speed up to 12 inch wafer.

SF-3AA and SF-300AAF are a system with a pattern matching function and X-Y positioning. The accuracy of positioning is 2μm or less.

  • Provides information on wafer thickness at high speed
  • Multi-point mapping
  • In-plane thickness measurement of a maximum Ø 300mm wafer
  • Incorporated into semiconductor processing equipment such as wafer grinding equipment and temporary bonders


  • Aligns fine patterns and provides various wafer thickness information
  • Mounts a high precision X-Y stage to make positioning accurate(± 2μm or less)
  • MEMS and sensor devices are measurable(option: 6, 8 and 12 inch)
  • Supports other than wafer shape
