Smaller pads not only utilize less device real estate space, they also allow sacrificial test structures to be placed in scribe lines, meaning process control monitoring and device characterization can be performed without using valuable space for sellable circuits. Probing pads with large dimensions is no relatively simple with conventional probe technologies. However, when trying… Continue reading InfinityQuad Tech Brief: Addressing the Challenges of Small Pad Probing
