Recent Technical Articles
Allyn Jackson, CyberOptics Field Application Engineer, conducted a presentation on at the 2011 ISMI Manufacturing Week. The presentation, “How to Improve Semiconductor Tool Particle Qualification” Explained the limitations of traditional airborne particle counters. Jackson offered case studies with statistics that compared the WaferSense APS’ performance against bench top and hand helds when performing the same task. Results showed that the APS offered up to a 90% times saving and up to a 20x improvement in throughput as an alternative instrument. Link to presentation
Real-Time Vibration Monitoring Optimizes 200 mm Equipment Productivity, Fab Engineering & Operations, May 2008. Increased equipment productivity is key for 200 mm fabs to realize profitability goals. This is true especially because some products won’t be transitioned to 300 mm production; therefore, equipment at these 200 mm fabs will need to keep running at optimum levels to reduce wafer scrap and achieve maximum yields. It is becoming increasingly imperative that process and equipment engineers be armed with a new set of solutions for monitoring equipment vibration and acceleration that provides a better feedback loop for controlling equipment conditions in order to accelerate yield improvements, and to reduce machine downtime.
