MicroSORT Semiconductor Wafer Sorting System

The Microtronic MicroSORT semiconductor wafer sorter is designed to maximize

throughput while minimizing wafer handling in a user-friendly operating environment. This stand-alone semiconductor wafer sorter enables sophisticated semiconductor wafer sorter routines for up to 4 wafer-cassette platforms. MicroSORT semiconductor wafer sorter reads OCR scribes from the top, bottom, or simultaneously, allowing for enhanced semiconductor wafer tracking and sorting. The MicroSORT semiconductor wafer sorter’s basic functions include the ability to move, compress, randomize, find, align, verify, and split semiconductor wafer lots. With our virtual tweezer mode, an operator can click on wafer icons to move wafers between cassettes, read semiconductor wafers, and swap wafer positions.

Better Ergonomics, Faster Throughput, Integrated Wafer Handling

MicroSORT semiconductor wafer sorter system uses multi-size wafer platforms or optional automatic tilt-back cassette towers that ensure that the semiconductor wafers are sitting correctly at the back of the cassette and provides ergonomic loading of semiconductor wafer cassettes for the operator.

An optional integrated flat of notch finder built in to the tilt-back mechanism allows all of the wafers in the cassette to be oriented optimally before they are raised. This feature of the MicroSORT semiconductor wafer sorter substantially improves OCR throughput and eliminates the need to separately align each semiconductor wafer, saving time.

A complete macro script language allows the implementation of complex, multiple-move sorter routines in a single recipe. This scripting language also provides messages displayed on the screen, the execution of customer developed programs, and calls to the internal Microtronic SiteVIEW Software command set.
