Thermal Test Chip Wafers To Be Available In 8\" Wafer Form

10 December 2018

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Thermal Engineering Associates, Inc. (TEA) announces that its industry leading Thermal Test Chip (TTC) will soon be available in 8" (200mm) diameter wafers. This conversion is taking place because –

  • Industry is better able to handle 8" wafers for bumping, thinning, and sawing
  • Number of available Unit Cells per wafer is more than doubled
  • Wafers can be offered up to 725µm thick to better simulate application chips
  • The larger wafer produces more large cell array chips
  • Cost per Unit Cell is lowered

For a limited time, TEA is accepting preorders for the 8" wafer products – both TTC-1001 (1mm x 1mm Unit Cell) and TTC-1002 (2.54mm x 2.54mm Unit Cell) versions – and is offering a price discount on orders of 5 or more wafers of either version. Both versions will be available in Wire Bond or Flip Chip (Bumped) types. Initial delivery is scheduled for February 2019.
