This conceptual demo shows how PI’s fast alignment can apply to large-area applications such as pick-and-place, and the screening, assembling, and testing of photonic devices. From the wafer, through coupon and chip, to the packaged product. The system performs a rapid localization, scanning, and fast lock-on and tracking of a series of photonic components over a large area.
This opens new possibilities for hyper-efficient systems architectures in large-format production processes. PI’s unique optimization functionality is firmware-based, offers parallel alignment across multiple inputs, outputs, and degrees-of-freedom, and can improve process throughput by a factor of 100 or more compared to legacy approaches.
The Study Integrates:
- V-508 PIMag® Precision Linear Stages
- F-712.PM high-bandwidth, broad-spectrum optical power meter
- ACS controls with PI’s alignment firmware
