The scriber-breaker uses a dry scribing and breaking technique to allow cleaner separation of dies on a wafer than can be done with a wet cutting saw. Some advantages are that the elimination of deionized water protects delicate structures on the wafer surface, decreasing street sizes of existing wafers, and dicing difficult-to-manage substrates. Many compound semiconductors can be challenging when dicing, and the dry scribe/break technology is successful for such materials.
