For stacked die package delamination inspection using C-mode acoustic microscope, traditional interface and thorough scan techniques cannot give enough of information when the delamination occurs in multi-interfaces, and echoes from adjacent interfaces are not sufficiently separated from each other. A thinner thickness in the stacked-die package could complicate C-mode scanning acoustic microscopy (CSAM) analysis and sometimes may lead to false interpretations. The first objective of this paper is to briefly explain the CSAM mechanism. Based on that, some of the drawbacks of current settings in detecting the delamination for stacked-die packages are presented. The last objective is to introduce quantitative B-scan analysis mode (Q-BAM) and Zip-Slice technologies in order to better understand and improve the reliability of detecting the delamination in stacked-die packages. Therefore, a large portion of this paper focuses on the Q-BAM and Zip-Slice data acquisition and image interpretation.
