Windows 10 compatible – User-centered design – Efficient and robust. The all new Velox™ 3 is the first successfully completed step of our mission to make the world‘s most powerful engineering software for 200 mm and 300 mm wafer probe stations even better. Velox 3 introduces a new icon and color concept, is Windows 10 compatible and comes with a completely integrated loader UI. The user experience will massively improve. And this is just the beginning.
1. New icons and skins. These will make it easier to focus on the essential user workflows and substantially lower training costs. More modern and identifiable, the new icons are still in the same place as before and easily recognizable. Process- and safety-relevant information is clearly highlighted, and it’s now easier to distinguish between application icons such as Spectrum or SetupTool, and functional icons such as AutoAlign or Light On/Off.
2. Windows 10 compatible. This guarantees a highest-performance and safe operation with state-of-the-art hardware and interfaces. Additionally, the innovative, intuitive and widely-used Windows Fluent Design System is adopted for several Velox functions, such as the SetupTool.
3. Loader integration. A loader can now be operated directly with Velox without the need for additional software. The creation of workflows and receipts is super simple and drastically improves the operation with fully-automated probe stations that include a loader. This saves time and training needs.
Here are some additional features that help Velox 3 stand out:
Contact Intelligence™ technology
With our unique Contact Intelligence™ technology, Velox 3 enables 24/7 autonomous semiconductor test. Contact Intelligence combines smart hardware design, innovative software algorithms and years of experience to create a technology that provides benefits across a wide range of applications. This allows lengthy test routines to be performed overnight or the weekend without operator intervention – even over a wide temperature range. Contact Intelligence accelerates time to accurate data, time to market and ultimately – time to profitability.
These interfaces are a SEMI-standard industry-specific integration layer for semiconductor production. SECS/GEM interfaces establish the connection between the system and the higher level. Things like production plant data, alarms, process values, and process parameters are transferred via SECS/GEM interfaces.
Velox AutoAlign is the most ergonomic and fastest way to align a wafer in X, Y and theta and determine the wafer diameter and die size. It creates a wafer map corresponding to the evaluated die indices and number of recognized dies in both axes.
VueTrack™ enables unattended testing over multiple temperatures for positioners or probe cards by automatically aligning probes to pads, utilizing the eVue Pro microscope. VueTrack eliminates the need for manual re-adjustment and ensures constant contact quality.
ReAlign™ enables unattended testing over multiple temperatures for probe cards on the CM300xi probe station by automatically aligning probes to pads, utilizing three system-integrated cameras. It is recommended especially for applications with limited microscope view, such as vertical and Pyramid probe cards, or when using a test head.
CellView allows you to easily navigate and orientate on parts of the wafer that are out of view.
The Velox Workflow Guide helps enable unexperienced users to perform successful measurements with step-by-step instructions for all processes, whether they are simple of complex.
Velox Setup Tool
The Velox Setup Tool combines all global Velox settings in one place – from autostart preferences, interface and device settings to license management. It reduces training needs and saves time.
