Semiconductor Manufacturing & Handling Equipment
The presence of impurities, from electrostatic discharge (ESD) to microscopic airborne particles, can have significant effects on the properties of the material and be the cause of defective devices. Failures can be immediate or latent – both potentially costly – so environmental control is carefully monitored and quality testing consists of scenarios that re-create the most common failure modes.
Microchips come from round silicon “wafers” manufactured using a multi-step process that involves temperature, light, chemicals and water. A specialized work station is required, containing staging areas and baths for masking, etching, doping and washing. The finished wafers need protection from airborne contaminants, moisture and charged ions, so controlled storage is required in static-dissipative or -neutralizing desiccators and other storage and process enclosures.
Terra Universal specializes in critical environment solutions such as clean rooms for housing semiconductor fabrication equipment, modular wet processing systems, handling tools, wafer transportation, vacuum chambers, and desiccators for dry, ESD-free storage of wafers and chips. See Terra’s selection of semiconductor processing and handling products below.
