Solutions for semiconductor process, facility monitoring and control
Semiconductor wafer and microelectronics fabrication is a demanding process with little room for mistakes. The industry depends on high-performing monitoring and measurement instrumentation for precise chemical compositions and atmospheric conditions. We offer semicon process refractometers for in-line concentration monitoring in bulk chemical and slurry delivery dispensing, and point-of-use blending, spiking and polishing processes; as well as instruments for measuring humidity, dew point, temperature and pressure within and surrounding the semiconductor tools and facilities.
Semiconductor wafer plants consume tons of chemicals throughout the whole fab process. The reliability of each chemical solution is top concern of fabs, as even the slightest deviation from specification can result in expensive equipment contamination and wafer scrap.
Integrated circuit pattern quality in semiconductor manufacturing depends on the stepper conditions. Enhance precision air conditioning and wafer stepper process capacity with accurate air pressure, temperature, and humidity measurement.
If you are using compressed air or nitrogen process lines, dew point measurement will help you save resources by avoiding excessive air drying and corrosion of the equipment. Vaisala’s DRYCAP technology enables quick response time with accuracy and low maintenance needs.
Insufficient ventilation decreases not only employee well-being but also productivity substantially, as much 18%. With accurate humidity, CO2, and temperature measurement using reliable, durable, and traceable HVAC sensors, both energy efficiency and employee well-being can be achieved simultaneously.
