GaN/sapphire wafers

PAM-XIAMEN provide GaN/sapphire wafers as follows:

 1

Description

Maximum Permissible

Inspection Level

1

Defects @ 50x

 

per spec

per 2" wafer

1.1

Voids

0

per spec

per 2" wafer

1.3

Large Defects

0

per spec

per 2" wafer

 

Large defects are defined as any defect >50um in width and >200nm in height. Large defects are visable to the naked eye under white light.

1.4

Scratches

edge ok

per spec

per 2" wafer

1.5

Contamination

0

per spec

per 2" wafer

 

1.6

Defects (Particles, Pits)

< 200

per spec

per 2" wafer

 

Microscope images are taken from three locations: 1) 5mm from the top edge, 2) center of wafer and 3) 5mm from bottom flat.  The total number of defects at these three location combined should be equal or less than 9 defects for the inspection to pass.
