Entegris Announces Higher-Purity Gas Purification System

News
New media provides yield improvements in systems for advanced semiconductor and LED applications

Entegris, a specialty chemicals and advanced materials handling company, has introduced a new platform for advanced gas purification that is said to improve wafer yields for semiconductor and LED applications.

The new family of GateKeeper Gas Purification Systems (GPS) applies new purification media to provide what is claimed to be 'best-in-class' gas purity at a wide range of flow rates with a reduced equipment footprint. 

With expanded capacity in South Korea, Entegris now manufactures GateKeeper GPS systems in both North America and Asia.

"Our customers face unprecedented contamination control challenges to efficiently manufacture today's increasingly complex leading-edge-devices. The new Gatekeeper GPS family of systems provide the advanced solutions required to maximise yield in these environments," said Entegris senior VP of Microcontamination Control, Clint Haris.

"In conjunction with these new technology introductions, we continue our investments in our North America and Asia facilities to expand our global service and manufacturing capabilities," he added.

Semiconductor processes for advanced nodes, as well as LED manufacturing requirements, call for increased purity to remove defect-causing contaminants found in process gases. The GateKeeper GPS family of systems removes a variety of contaminants from gas streams down to the parts-per-trillion level and can be configured to a wide range of flow rates. Gases purified include CDA, N2, H2, H2 for EUV, Ar and NH3

Additionally, manufacturers are looking for tools that require significantly less sub-fab floor space. The reduced footprint allows customers to devote valuable sub-fab floor space to other tool needs or increase purification capacity with additional systems, according to Entegris.  

"We collaborated closely with our customers to identify purity requirements to meet their need to remove new contaminants and increased sensitivity to known contaminants," said director of Gas Purification Product Management, Jordan Ruple. "As a result, we are proud to be the first to offer this level of purity - in a variety of gases and flow rates - for systems of this size."  



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
