Improving silicon wafer processing time and yields in a consistent and repeatable process is an on-going need among semiconductor manufacturers. Modutek’s customizable IPA Vapor Dryer design addresses the needs of facilities and process engineers who are constantly looking for ways to improve their manufacturing process. Modutek partners with your engineers to build an IPA Vapor Dryer that matches your specific requirements using SolidWorks Flow Simulation and Simulation Professional software. This system provides improved operations and drying time with one or two 150-450mm cassettes or glass substrates. For reliable performance, Modutek does not outsource the design and manufacturing of their wafer processing equipment. Equipment design, assembly, and DI water testing all occur on-site at our San Jose facility.
IPA Vapor Dryer Design
Combine rinsing and drying chambers using the Modutek IPA Vapor Dryer. This Marangoni drying system uses a single chamber to simplify the final stages in your cleaning process. Choose a freestanding cabinet or seamless integration into your current wet bench. Surface tension drying with stationary parts perfectly accommodates modern, flat substrates. In addition, potential wafer breakage and damage are essentially eliminated. This advanced system serves as your one-stop shop for IC, solar cell, fuel cell, MEMS and disk drives.
The IPA Vapor Dryer achieves high throughput with a variety of features and benefits. For maximum yield, our systems eliminate watermarks on substrates and hydrophilic/hydrophobic films with no feature damage. The system also provides 15-minute batch drying for most applications. In addition there is a secure system interface bottle change for quick, deck-level operations. Here, one-gallon IPA containers fill under level sensor protection. IPA consumption decreases through even vapor distribution at the top of the chamber.
Additional safety features include:
- Overtemp protection on all heated devices
- Teflon tubing for all wet plumbing
- High/low flow cascade rinse
- Touch screen interface
Optional features include:
- Dump rinse
- Resistivity monitor
