Acoustic Microscopy
Since its inception, Sonoscan has remained the most trusted authority on the application of Acoustic Microscopy, also known as Acoustic Micro Imaging (AMI) technology for nondestructive internal inspection and analysis. Sonoscan acoustic microscopes are recognized as the benchmark for accuracy, and through our SonoLab® division, you'll benefit from the unmatched expertise of our dedicated acoustic applications engineers.
Benefits of AMI (Acoustic Micro Imaging)
Locates hidden flaws before they lead to failures
Detects delamination as thin as 200 Angstroms
Isolates material property variations
Measures material density, porosity, inclusions, cracks and voids
Assesses thermal, impact and fatigue damage
Nondestructive
FastLineTM P300TM C-SAM®:
Maximum Throughput, Minimal Footprint for the Factory Floor
The FastLineTM P300TM Acoustic Microscope is specifically designed for accelerated inspection throughput in manual screening of microelectronic devices on the manufacturing floor. With an integrated design to minimize footprint, the FastLine is the new platform for Acoustic Microscopes.

FastLineTM P300TM features a new electronics platform to meet current and next generation applications. New Movement MapTM technology delivers precise transducer positioning, while the Visual Poly-GateTM mode allows for simple and instant multiple depth imaging. These innovative features along with the higher speed scanning mechanism make the P300TM system essential for any production line application
FACTS2TM C-SAM©:
High-Resolution Acoustic Micro Imaging at Production Speeds
Fast Automated C-SAM® Tray Scanning System

The FACTS2TM Acoustic Microscope delivers state-of-the-art, automated AMI inspection for quality and process control. Delivering high throughput with minimal operator interaction, FACTS2 helps ensure defect-free production with potentially no reduction in throughput. FACTS2 automatically inspects up to 10,000 integrated circuits per hour. Up to 35 JEDEC trays of singulated ICs can be stacked as a batch, or trays can be inspected as part of an in-line process. In addition, the FACTS2 can also handle multi-layer ceramic chip capacitors, flip chips and other components.
AW200TM Series C-SAM®:
Fully Automated Wafer Bond Inspection (125mm to 200mm Diameter)
AW300TM Series C-SAM®:
Dual Loadports (optional), Fully Automated Wafer Bond Inspection (300mm Diameter)
The AW200TM Series is a high-capacity, high-throughput automated C-SAM® system designed to deliver maximum sensitivity for the evaluation of bonded wafers in applications such as SOI, MEMS and others. Since the materials used in these applications are very transparent to ultrasound, Sonoscan uses proprietary high acoustic frequency lenses, which are designed in-house, to obtain the most detailed images. The AW200 Series can detect voids smaller than 5 microns in diameter between two wafers and delamination with the separation between the wafers as thin as 200 Angstroms.
