About 3M™ Wafer Support System: The wafer support system replaces traditional backgrind tapes with a glass/adhesive sandwich that provides increased support during the crucial grinding step. As a result, manufacturers can create a much thinner wafer, with thicknesses down to 25 microns possible. And because the glass and adhesive construct can withstand high temperatures, it also allows the manufacturer to perform additional backside processing steps, if necessary.

About Syagrus Systems: Syagrus Systems, based in Arden Hills, Minnesota, is a leading manufacturing service provider to the worldwide semiconductor industry. The services offered by the company include SMD tape and reel, silicon wafer backgrinding, post backgrind CMP, silicon wafer dicing, automated wafer inspection, and die sorting.
