To make the most advanced bond tester control software on the market, we combined the unique strengths of the Condor series with the latest software technologies and innovations. With the introduction of the Condor Sigma software we break the legacy by introducing the most powerful intuitive software. Operators can quickly learn to use the Condor Sigma alongside your existing equipment and procedures. With minimum mouse clicks you achieve exactly what you desire. As the main menu is always visible, you keep overview even in the customized screens.
A great strength of the Condor Sigma software is that it is completely open, allowing you to easily customize it for the widest range of tests. For more standard applications the Condor Sigma software features onboard graphics and intelligent wizards, providing intuitive operator control. It ensures complete documentation of the test protocol, provides preset configurations and simple, intuitive operator screens, making it ideal for the production environment. The more capable and flexible options are still there should you need them, but they can be hidden for day to day use.
Software updates come with the matched fully tested firmware embedded. This ensures that whatever software version you use, the hardware will use the exactly matched and fully tested firmware revision and allows you to easily up and/or downgrade at any time.
The Condor Sigma software provides sophisticated SPC data management. It uses a unique feature refered to as ‘work forms’ that can be used as an SPC management system for storing the measurement results. Control rules can be defined and used for real-time monitoring of the measurement data. Furthermore it offers comprehensive statistical information for analyzing the complete production process, including different types of graphs that can be viewed on screen or printed in a report.
A major software feature is the capability of the Condor Sigma software to provide real three-dimensional automatic testing (click here for a video). Automatic test procedures are created and maintained through the engineering level, while operators can start automation just by a single click. Numerous features can be used for optimal customization to fully suit the requirements. For example: the input of variable data of the test sample, or the automatic generation of data extraction through print-out and/or export.
One of the most important parts in all software that collects data like the Condor Sigma software, is the possibility to extract measurement data in several ways. The Condor software is able to export data in more than 30 formats such as PDF, XML, XLS, DOC for use in other applications.
The Condor Sigma software offers import- and export of multiple file formats for wafer maps (KLARF, INF, etc.). After the import the map shows a complete overview. The system will guide you step by step through all marked defects.
The tested positions are clearly marked on the map. When all tests are finished, the wafer map and test results can be exported for full traceability. For each die a high resolution picture can be made that shows and marks the tested bumps. An offline viewer is available to check the exported wafer map files and the test results.
XYZTEC delivers its bondtesters with the Windows operating system language of your choice. Additionally, the Condor Sigma software is available in multiple languages. Currently, the following languages are available.
More languages are being added on request.
SECS/GEM is an equipment interface protocol for equipment-to-host data communications in the semiconductor industry. As market leader in bond testing, we often get requests to interface with the factory host. Among other protocols, XYZTEC offers SECS/GEM communication directly in the Condor Sigma software or via an EFEM. Contact XYZTEC for more information and options for your factory.
Using composite surface imaging techniques, it is possible to accurately determine the heights of a feature on your sample. This can be used for multiple purposes, like determining loop heights without actually touching the wire. It is also possible to produce images wherein everything is in focus. The following video shows how an Optical 3D model is constructed.
The XYZTEC Condor Sigma is unique in its ability to share a centralized database with other testers. The extensive networking support enables the customer to increase security and to exchange settings and test data between any number of Condor Sigma bond testers and a central database.
If you own multiple bond testers a centralized database greatly enhances Statistical Process Control (SPC). It enables engineers to develop and share uniform test settings among several machines, improving the quality of measurements. Advantages of a centralized database also include better security, storage capacity, historical information records and data integrity as well as easier administration and updates. Database management becomes more cost effective with the Condor Sigma.
Another unique feature of the Condor Sigma software is its free, in-built and easy to use data export editor. This enables the engineer to create their own reports in almost any format, to be saved to a file or the clipboard.
The export editor is user friendly and comes with a test format function which illustrates the output of your configuration using dummy data. The engineer has the flexibility to setup all the fields you need like file name, report headers, an optional data definition field and of course the format of the test data itself.
The ability to create their own reports quickly by themselves is valued by many XYZTEC customers. However, XYZTEC also continues to provide remote and on-site support both via its worldwide support network of local partners and by its own specialists.
Current users of bond test equipment will find that the Condor Sigma system will provide an easy transition from their existing process to the state of the art Condor Sigma platform.
