Improve wafer production with manual wafer inspection
- Yellow light lamp for wafer testing: emitted in an optimized wavelength range, including the wavelength of 546, 577 and 579 nm, typically emitted by inspection lamps based on mercury vapour discharge bulbs as peak wavelength
- yellow better than green (525 nm) for high-contrast detection
- no flickering during the wafer test
- dimmable yellow light lamp that can be used to adjust the intensity to the best level for all types of inspections and types of errors
- Inspection lamp for semiconductor wafers
- LED-based replacement for common yellow light lamps
Which types of wafers can be tested with the SECU-CHEK yellow light lamp?
- Wafer inspection in semiconductor and chip manufacturing
- Wafer testing for the solar industry and photovoltaics
- visual wafer surface testing for all wafer sizes: 25mm (1-inch), 38mm (1.5-inch), 51mm (2-inch), 75mm (3-inch), 100mm (4-inch), 125mm (5-inch), 150mm (6-inch), 200mm (8-inch), 300mm (12-inch), 450mm (18-inch)
- Inspection of epitaxed wafers
- optical testing of monocrystalline wafers and also polycrystalline wafers
- visual test of the surface of silicon wafers
- Check also possible for square wafers
- Testing of raw wafers and structured wafers
- Analysis of the surface of epitaxy wafers (EPI wafers) and SOI wafers

- Visual inspection for SEMI standard wafers
- Quality check of bonded wafers, wafers on tape
- visual wafer inspection also for bare, thinned and fan-out wafers
- Optical quality control and inspection of strongly curved wafers (eLWB, etc.)
Particle Detection and quality control to reduce contamination in wafer production / semiconductor production
In addition to the visual surface inspection during wafer inspection, in which wafer inspection is carried out by means of a yellow light lamp or green light lamp, partly automated, many semiconductor manufacturers have further requirements:
- Use test lamps to check for particle contamination in the systems
- Particledetection with yellow light lamps or with UV-LED lamps
- Particle search for quality control in the cleanroom during wafer production
- Search and find particles for cleaning the machines in semiconductor production
- Cleaning and keeping clean production equipment in the course of continuous quality control
Contamination of production facilities is a critical factor for smooth production and thus business success. In most cases, the particle detection can only be carried out with manual inspection and thus with mobile yellow light lamps, green light lamps or UV LED lamps.
Let us advise you on how to seamlessly and effectively integrate optimal quality control into your existing wafer production processes with SECU-CHEK’s leading wafer inspection technology.

Wafer manufacturing - Knowledge and information
What is a wafer?
- Wafer stands for “thin biscuit” or “thin slice”
- a wafer is mostly circular, but partly also square
- the production of wafers is carried out from so-called ingots
- Wafers are usually a base plate for electronic components and elements
Use of wafers
- Chip production (integrated circuits)
- Photovoltaic (solar cells)
- Microsystem technology

Building a wafer
- Material: mostly silicon, partly also silicon carbide, gallium arsenide and indium phosphide
- partly also glass or gold wafers
- Size: 1 inch wafer to 18-inch wafer, with 18-inch wafers not yet possible for mass production
- there are various methods for the production of the ingots, e.B. the Czochralski process, etc.
Wafers in photovoltaics
- Differentiation of polycrystalline (multicrystalline) and monocrystalline wafers
- Wafers are produced by sawing the ingots
- square-shaped silicon blocks mostly for solar cell production
- round, monocrystalline wafers of cylindrical ingots mostly for chip manufacturing and microelectronics
