Wafer Map Software Tools

Programs and libraries for converting, viewing and editing wafer maps. Ideal for assembly and test operations. Libraries for OEM applications.

3DVU - 3D Viewer/DRC

3DVU is a 3D Viewer and DRC checker for both simple and advanced packages. Visualize complicated packages in 3D; check wire clearances in full 3D. Additional modules for 3Di to STEP conversion available.


SmartDie extracts pad coordinates and nets from a GDSII or AutoCAD dwg of the die. Builds a complete die netlist in seconds. Import the netlist into your package design software. Runs inside of AutoCAD or GDSII runs as stand-alone application.

GDS-SR - GDSII Step and Repeat

A utility for quickly and efficiently generating full wafer masks for semiconductor and RDL packaging. Includes support for reticle input, replacing die, knockouts and SINF (wafer map) output.

AIF - Data Exchange Format

AIF is a simple, open, text based data exchange format developed by Artwork together with Cadence and Xynetix, and users such as Amkor, Xilinx, AMD and Agere ... which is very useful for wirebond data exchange.

Image to Die Netlist

A program for converting an image of a die into a die netlist by identifying the pads, finding their size and center and exporting an AIF file.

Aligning a Wafer Map Using Shot Map Parameters

When building an RDL mask set the package designer would like to use the wafer map as a template. This software not only converts the wafer map but uses the shot map parameters to align the layout onto the wafer ...


Wirebond reduces the time required to create bond wire documents from hours to minutes. Imports the die, places it, wires it, wire DRC, separate wires by tier, auto-documentation. Runs inside of AutoCAD 64 bit. Tagger is used to add intelligence to "dumb" leadframe and BGA drawings. Together the two programs accelerate the generation of bond documents for the factory floor.


Documentation Generator for BGA Substrates. Helps generate a multi-page documentation package inside of AutoCAD. Customized for each company's title border and documentation requirements. Runs in AutoCAD 64 bit.


Automatically generate a bond wire documentation package in minutes from a new design done in Cadence APD or Xynetix Encore BGA (Now Sigrity.) Bondgen extracts the pads, wires, die and rings from a completed design (via the AIF format)and automates the layout, labeling and annotation of the bond document. Runs inside of AutoCAD 2014-2018.

ACAD2APD - Intelligent Import from AutoCAD to APD

It is difficult to import a lead frame drawn in AutoCAD into Cadence APD but now it can be done in minutes using the two modesl of ACAD2APD - LayoutGen to add intelligence within AutoCAD and Layout2APD to import the data into APD ...
