Hi,
I have a Silicon wafer with some chips marked by an ink drop (the failed ones); that's the normal procedure whenever the wafers are processed at the final line test. Is it more correct to say the ink has been spilled or dispensed (distributed)?

Thanks

Sarah

Using "spilled" or "dispensed" conveys the idea that all the ink is gone. I think that if you are referring to the ink mark on the chip, the word "applied" fits well. The ink drop was applied, or the chips have an ink drop applied to them to indicate they are defective.

Thanks

Sarah

It may happen that the "ink got spilled' not 'has been spilled. Excuse me, Sarah.

Just because the writer of an article is British doesn't mean that they use English correctly-DragOnspeaker.
