iST has recently offered MOSFET wafer backend process integrated service in Taiwan. The wafer thinning – Backside Grinding/ Backside Metallization (BGBM) process has begun mass production with orders released by customers since this month, led by a lift in sentiment among customers due to the continuously improving yield rate of 99.5% for three consecutive months in line with the needs of major customers.

To assist customers in one-stop integration to the BGBM process, iST’s Front-side Metallization Process (FSM) is offering Chemical / Electro-less Plating service on top of Sputtering Deposition beginning this month. The post-installation test was successful and small scale mass production is underway for customers.

In term of China market, iST mentioned the recent trade war between China and the United States.  China’s semiconductors are facing an immediate emergency to increase its self-sufficiency rate, which has made enterprises put more efforts in supporting R&D and new cases. Based on this scenario, it is expected to drive the future verification and analysis requirements.
