History ALSI originated from the semiconductor industry and has a clear understanding of how to meet the driving forces in this industry. ALSI was founded in the year 2001 as a spin off from Philips Semiconductors and started with a transfer of knowhow and patents from Royal Philips NV, through which ALSI has obtained the unique Intellectual Property Rights on multiple beam laser separation technology. The Philips laser dicing technology was proven by the billions of separated units, and ALSI continued the development of this proprietary technology and introduced it to the whole semiconductor industry. Meanwhile ALSI’s technologies have lead to a breakthrough in the LED and RF-IC industry; wafers of High Brightness LED’s and GaAs RF-IC’s for mobile communication are increasingly diced by ALSI’s Multiple Laser Beam Process, in which ALSI has achieved a leading position. ASM Laser Separation International (ALSI) is a wholly owned subsidiary of ASM Pacific Technology Ltd (ASM PT),  which is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and is  the world’s largest assembly and packaging equipment supplier. ALSI will serve as the Group’s Advanced  Laser Technology Centre to develop new processes and supply systems for laser dicing and grooving applications in the semiconductor industry.

Dive into our technology

Multibeam Process

Compared to mechanical separation methods such as sawing or scribing and breaking laser dicing offers mainly three key advantages:

  • A smaller separation width.
  • A reduction of the throughput time.
  • An increased yield.
  • Unidirectional (sawing)
  • Bi-directional (laser dicing)

Machine Concepts

The design of ALSI machine platform has been made with productive and accurate laser dicing of semiconductor wafers in mind. It incorporates over 12 years of experience in laser dicing of wafers originally at NXP (formerly Philips Semiconductor), and the extensive know-how available in the well-established semiconductor equipment manufacturers in The Netherlands and Germany.

Spot to lane (S2L)

Automatic S2L ensure that the first lane processed on the wafer to be in the correct position. While Kerf check on the fly monitors the performance while processing, S2L ensures also the first lane on the wafer to be in the correct position.

Matrix Grooving

As metal layers are increasing in thickness a single pass single row pass is not sufficient to achieve the required grooving depth. Matrix grooving allows to utilize the available laser power and convert power into productivity increase while maintaining small HAZ.
