Paper Abstract

The local modification of an integrated circuit (IC) requires in general the availability of three generic processes. First, a method for cutting conductors must be provided. Second, a process for depositing new conductors must be available. Finally, a means of opening via holes through the chip passivation to the underlying conductors is needed; this operation enables newly deposited conductors to make connections to the existing circuit elements, and also provides probe access to facilitate testing of the circuit.
