UK WP1: Meeting Summary
Meeting Commenced: 11:20
Liverpool: P.Dervan, M. Milovanovic, I. Tsurin
Oxford: D. Bortoletto
Glasgow: K. Doonan
RAL: J. Matterson, I. Wilmut, J. Lipp
Manchester: J. Pater, G. Miller

1. Summary of the meeting:
• Mike, the Liverpool wire bonder has had an operation. He will be off work for three weeks. So there was no news on the sensors/module side of things.
• The assembly jig is nearly finished (see the slides from Ilya on the indico site). Quotes from three companies have just been received for the glue stencils. Would everything is ready we would like to have a review of the process and jig.
• Paul has been in touch with the German groups about the PSPP chip. They are making a new submission at the end of February. The UK would like some (including the strip
group). We will go and visit the German groups in the next month or so.
• If we redesign the hybrid with the PSPP chip the tapes and EOS card will need to be modified. Jo mentioned that an email had just been sent around about a face to face
meeting about the EOS card. The PSPP has now been included.

• Jo introduced Graham Miller. He is Manchester’s new electrical engineer.
• Jo mentioned the face to face EOS meeing. This will happen in early February. A doodle pole has been sent around.
• There will be a test beam at DESY around Easter time. The beam will be setup for 3D devices. Do you want to send the AC devices?

• A probe station has been ordered.
• The new lab will be ready around May time.
• Lots of work has been done on the CMOS sensors. These will be irradiated next Tuesday in Birmingham.

• Tape tests will happen soon.
• Kenny has been working on the reconstruction of test beam data for sensors with different geometries

• Wafer (ASIC) probing continues.
• More wafers are needed.
• Stages need to be ordered for the module mounting system
• Bump bonding of CP6 wafers is on going.
• The GDS file for the top metal is needed.
• Work on QUAD bump bonding is progressing.
• The modules with low bump yield are being investigated.
• A low deposition system is being looked at, to reduce the out-gassing.
• John Lipp requested that the next few meeting were announced in advance. To help with planning.
• There is a RCE/COB workshop in Oxford next week.
• The next few meeting will be at 11:15am on the 5th Feb, 19th Feb and 5th March.

Dear All,
Notes from WP1 meeting 29/10
Present: A. Stewart, J. Pater, P. Dervan, C. Buttar, K. Doonan, M. 
Craig discussed the proposal by Anna Macciholo regarding having a single 
talk on sensors and other areas in the module meeting. It was agreed 
that this was reasonable and that we should see if it works. Craig will 
Craig reported that there was concern expressed by 
Advacam regarding dicing of CP6 sensors due to the mistake in the mask design. As previously discussed, 
a plan had been sent to to Advacam that sacrificed single sensors. It 
had also been agreed to have a wafer diced at Micron to see if this 
could avoid sacrificing the single sensors and having an extended edge 
on one of the quads.
The question was raised as to whether we should get a new CP6 mask set 
that is better for dicing. It was agreed we should investigate dicing 
with Micron first.
 *Paul will discuss dicing at Micron with Ilya and Gian to check* 
 *availability and cost and report at the next meeting.* 
Craig reported that the he had discussed the probe marks on the chips 
shown in Marko's slides. He said it was unusual to probe a chip twice 
but this had been done from time to time as required. It had not been a 
problem during production. He could not make a comment on dicing.
It was agreed that new modules will undergo a visual inspection to look 
at the quality of dicing, probe marks, scratches and chips. A record 
will be kept for each module.
 *Advacam also have a visual inspection sheet and Richard will ask if they* 
 *can be sent to us along with a module.* 
Please send me comments and corrections.
Craig & Paul

  • Freiburg talks: The list i sent to Paolo after last weeks discussion can be found below.
  • TB analysis status and SLAC discussion
  • Status of RAL In-bumped module
  • Flex and tape status
  • Update on Cea-Leti production
  • AOB

List sent to Paolo after last weeks discussion

1. Sensors

Results from characterisation of quad sensors.

We got some nice data at DESY with unirradiated and also with an irradiated sensors.

Results from characterisation of pixel sensors with different geometries As for the quads, we have some nice data from the Feb DESY TB run with unirradiated and irradiated sensors.

2. Modules

Interconnect developments

This would cover work with Cea-Leti, we have first results on using the backside compensation, status of bump-bonding at Advacam.

Status of In bump bonding at RAL

This would cover an update on the In bump bonding at RAL. We have the first module from RAL and would hope to have results from characterising.

It may be this could be merged with the more general interconnect developments.

Depending on overlaps with the other meetings, we could contribute a summary of quad and different geometries in case as there may be people who do not see the talks in the sensor sessions.

Flex development

We have a prototype flex on thin FR4 and hope to have bonded chips to it and characterised it by Freiburg.

Wafer probing

We can provide an update on UK work in this area.
