The International SPM Symposium on Failure Analysis and Material Testing 2021 (FAMT)
will be held virtually on July 1, 2021.


Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems (IMWS) and Park Systems invite you to attend the International SPM Symposium on Failure Analysis and Material Testing 2021 (FAMT) July 1, 2021. FAMT will gather professionals from the electronics industry to discuss innovative testing methods and tools for failure analysis of the future.

Advancing miniaturization shapes our modern high-tech world. The design complexity of electronic components and the heterogeneity of new materials constantly increase with decreasing device sizes. New-engineered products need to secure a high level of reliability, sustainability, and longevity to meet the international quality standards. Detection and classification of nanometer-sized material defects require characterization methods with a resolution in the nanometer range.

“High integration density is a constant challenge to the quality and reliability of the components, therefore more sophisticated methods for failure analysis are of fundamental importance. In the symposium, we will present new approaches that will help industry to develop robust electronic products and support reliable operation under the particular environmental conditions,” comments Frank Altmann, Head of Business Unit Electronics at Fraunhofer IMWS.

The program will include keynote talks ranging from case studies in the semiconductor device applications, innovative methods and tools for material characterization and defect review, emerging applications in the electronic industry up to future methods for increasing line productivity, efficiency, and yield.

“Scanning Capacitance Microscopy (SCM) has proven itself as a critical technique for finding and understanding three-dimensional dopant related root cause mechanisms. (…) At the symposium, we will present the novel sample preparation techniques and analysis for advanced node FinFET devices using scanning probe microscopy (SPM)”, explains FAMT 2021 keynote speaker, Nirmal Adhikari, GlobalFoundries.

The symposium is going to be held as a virtual event. Access is free of charge.
