Santa Ana (sän'tä ä`nä), city (1993 pop. 129,873), W El Salvador. It is the second largest city in the country and the commercial and processing center for a sugarcane, coffee, and cattle region. , Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 9, 2002
Verteq Inc. today announced the shipment of a Goldfinger Mach2 single-wafer cleaning system to an Asian semiconductor research institute.
The Goldfinger Mach2 dual-chamber cleaning system will be used for post-etch and post-ash cleans of copper dual damascene via and trench structures on 200mm wafers. The customer purchased the system for use at an R&D facility, and includes multi-solvent processing capability for evaluating multiple chemistries and low-k dielectrics to be used for sub-100nm devices.
"Goldfinger's ability to effectively remove particles and debris from high-aspect, ratio-recessed features were key to Goldfinger's selection by this research customer," said Rich Wiley, vice president and general manager of Verteq's single wafer business unit.
"It was also important to the customer that Goldfinger demonstrated cost-effective processing with the high-cost chemistries typically used in copper/low-k cleans."
Verteq's integrated Sahara(TM) surface tension gradient gradient
In mathematics, a differential operator applied to a three-dimensional vector-valued function to yield a vector whose three components are the partial derivatives of the function with respect to its three variables. The symbol for gradient is ∇. drying process was also a factor in the customer's decision to choose the Goldfinger system, Wiley added.
The Goldfinger Mach2 features two process chambers, each with the patented Goldfinger megasonic cleaning Megasonic Cleaning is a type of Acoustic cleaning, related to Ultrasonic cleaning. It is a gentler cleaning mechanism, less likely to cause damage, and is currently used in wafer cleaning. and rinsing system and the Sahara surface tension gradient drying system. The Mach2 also includes twin load ports that are configurable, as are the process chambers, for either 200mm or 300mm wafer applications. The system has a compact enclosure footprint of only 24 square feet, and typically processes 100 wafers per hour.
