Silicon Fingerprinting

Silicon Fingerprinting

A technology from SiidTech Inc., Hillsboro, OR (www.siidtech.com) that is used to add a unique ID to a chip whether still on the wafer or in its final package. It is used to improve testing of the chip as well as serve as a tracing mechanism later on. Like human fingerprints, no two Silicon Fingerprints are the same. The technology may also be used as a substitute for barcoding in certain applications.
