1995-2006 Semiconductor Test Engineer in Orlando, FL and Houston, TX

A human hair is about 100 um (microns) across. The smallest transistor we are currently manufacturing is 0.14 um across. Imagine placing the probes from a Digital Multimeter on two test pads located on the wafer below in order to take 2500 different measurements. In my 16 years at AT&T Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies, Agere Systems, and Texas instruments. I have "Probed" over 20 Million wafers and published the results to a world wide audience. These chips are now powering your mp3 players, cameras, cell phones, hard drives, Macs, UNIX workstations, 10/100 NIC, Routers, air bags, anti-lock brakes and even gaming consoles...

1990-1995 AT&T Computer Systems and NCR - test and repair of computers, servers, banking systems. Memphis, TN and Peachtree City, GA.

1975-2006 Media Services - technical services for the entertainment industry including road manager, production manager, audio recording and productions. All parts south and east of Kansas.

A single chip or die as we call them.

A wafer with many die.


Put your DMM test leads on two of these test pads, which are 50um across! Note the test devices are between the die and are destroyed when the wafer is sliced into die.
