Stealth Dicing（隐形切割）技术是一种使用激光的激光切割技术，具有全新的概念。由于“完全干燥工艺”、“无截口损失”、“无切屑”、“高弯曲强度”等特点，该技术适用的器件范围将扩大到包括 MEMS 器件和存储器件等。
隐形切割技术可将能够穿透材料的波长的激光光束聚焦，在内部聚焦并形成晶圆破裂的起点（改性层：隐形切割层，以下称为“SD 层”），然后向晶圆施加外部应力，将其分离。该过程主要由两部分组成，即形成 SD 层以使晶圆内部破裂的“激光辐照过程”以及用于分离晶圆的“膨胀过程”。
激光光束聚焦在晶圆内部，形成 SD 层以分离晶圆。裂纹也从 SD 层形成，而 SD 层在内部朝向晶圆的顶部和底部表面形成，这些裂纹通过激光光束扫描沿着计划的切割线连接。此外，为了切割 MEMS 器件等厚晶圆，在厚度方向上形成多个 SD 层，然后连接裂纹。
必须根据用途使用 SD 层的四种模式；这些模式组合在一起，实现最佳处理条件。最佳处理条件是否存在取决于半导体器件的状态，如晶圆的厚度或芯片的形状，以及是否存在任何金属薄膜等。
通过胶带膨胀等行为在周边方向上拉紧胶带，对已形成 SD 层的晶圆施加外力。这会对晶圆的内部裂纹状态施加拉应力，并使裂纹延伸到顶部和底部表面，从而分离晶片。
下面显示了使用隐形切割技术切割的具有膜结构的 MEMS 器件以及具有保护薄膜和金属薄膜的器件的照片。这实现了锋利的切割质量，芯片的顶部和底部表面没有任何切屑。切割效果良好，没有任何损坏，也没有污染物附着到芯片中心的膜结构上。
