This paper is concerned with characterization and failure analysis challenges posed by 3D integration of semiconductor devices, with a particular focus on wafer bonded components and Through Silicon Vias (TSV). Requirements for sample preparation are discussed, along with advantages and limitations exhibited by various different techniques. Analysis examples with real devices are presented, along with successful sample preparation solutions enabled by a precision polishing toolset.
