Mykrolis Corporation (NYSE NYSE
See: New York Stock Exchange : MYK MYK Monada Ypovrixion Kastrofon (Greek: Underwater Destruction Unit; Greek Navy's special warfare group) ), a leading supplier of components and subsystems to the semiconductor industry, will showcase its Impact(R) 2 disposable filter and manifold at the SEMICON West trade show (Booth #726) in San Francisco San Francisco (săn frănsĭs`kō), city (1990 pop. 723,959), coextensive with San Francisco co., W Calif., on the tip of a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, which are connected by the strait known as the Golden July 14-16, 2003. Mykrolis's Impact 2 filter and manifold offer OEMs and end-users a compact footprint of 60 mm and is now available in a 0.02 micron pore size to support the most stringent filtration requirements.
Designed as a standalone or for use with next-generation photochemical photochemical
in laser treatment, the laser light is absorbed and converted into chemical energy. dispense systems, the Impact 2 filter and manifold address the growing need in semiconductor manufacturing for tighter filtration and smaller tool size. To support finer pore sizes, Mykrolis's Impact 2 filters utilize an ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UPE UPE Upsilon Pi Epsilon (International Computer Science Honor Society)
UPE Universal Primary Education
UPE Unreimbursed Partnership Expenses
UPE Universal Plasticx Exchange
UPE User Plane Entity (3GPP) ) flat-sheet membrane. In addition to the new 0.02 micron offering, Impact 2 filters are also available in 0.03, 0.05, 0.1, and 0.2 micron pore sizes.
At 60 mm, the Mykrolis Impact 2 offers a smaller footprint to support more points of dispense per tool. The manifold features Mykrolis's patented Connectology(TM) changeout mechanism. These disposable point-of-use filters quickly connect and seal with the Impact 2 manifold during changeout, eliminating any handling of the filter element. This innovative design reduces potential exposure to hazardous chemicals during installation and disposal, promoting a safer work environment while increasing tool uptime.
"Mykrolis's Impact 2 filter and manifold offering exemplifies our responsiveness and commitment to our customers," said Linda Natale, product manager at Mykrolis Corp. "As the semiconductor manufacturing industry moves to finer line widths and more rigorous process controls, both our OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) The rebranding of equipment and selling it. The term initially referred to the company that made the products (the "original" manufacturer), but eventually became widely used to refer to the organization that buys the products and and end-user customers are demanding more advanced purification technologies. They're also demanding smaller component footprints to ensure the most cost-effective utilization of real estate in the fab. With our Impact 2 filter and manifold, we're proactively addressing both concerns. Customers who have converted to the Impact 2 product offering are experiencing process advantages such as reduced on-wafer defects."
