The semiconductor industry has grown to cover a wide variety of applications such as those with memory integrated circuits for PCs or mobile devices, solar cells, and many more electronic devices. Within the semiconductor industry, SWIR cameras can be used for inspecting the quality of pure semiconductor material after ingot growth, the alignment of a saw blade or laser, failure analysis, and other semiconductor inspection applications. This white paper discusses several applications of SWIR (short-wave infrared) cameras within semiconductor inspection applications, especially those that rely on the capability of SWIR cameras to see through semiconductor materials, such as silicon.
