New Leak Detector Defines Test Standards In Semi Manufacturing

News

Inficon, global manufacturer of leak test equipment, has introduces the UL3000 Fab leak detector for semiconductor manufacturing maintenance teams to easily check the tightness of vacuum chambers for wafer production. Special advantages of the new leak detector are its fast readiness and unrivaled simplicity enabling the operator to find leaks of all sizes with the same procedures. It also has a slim mobile design for easy maneuverability and an intuitive operating concept for easy operation. The UL3000 Fab, which uses helium as a test gas, detects even the smallest leakage rates up to 5 x 10-12 atm cc/, thus providing the highest seal confirmation tightness of vacuum chambers for wafer production.

Daniel Hoffman, Sales and Service Manager for Leak Detection in the Americas, sees the new model as a big step forward. "Constantly innovating and optimizing our products to meet customer needs is a core goal for Inficon . With our new UL3000 Fab we will enable leak detection productivity gains never before seen in the semiconductor leak testing process," said Hoffman.

The powerful, compact and smart leak detector enables testing at atmospheric pressure (through MASSIVE leak function) with best in class time to test or background generation, saturation protection, smart power and PM saving control all in a compact package. With its narrow design (only 18.6 inches wide), the mobile leak detector is designed for high maneuverability. Also, UL3000 Fab features robust construction, a deep center of gravity and large tires to ensure optimum mobility.

Once the leak is located, UL3000 Fab makes the user's work simple with a user-friendly rotating touch screen that offers a modern menu structure and an intuitive user interface. The menu can also be accessed via a mobile device - which makes the instrument easy to control remotely, particularly if the space conditions are cramped and the instrument is operated at some distance from the wafer manufacturing chamber. Another feature is the I·Zero 2.0 function which makes it possible to suppress helium background in the test object without affecting the accuracy and reliability of the test, so the leak test can begin more quickly.

UL3000 Fab PLUS also features HYDRO·S software which is capable of suppressing moisture and hydrogen effects on the helium leak rate. The result is the leak test can be started earlier. The I·Cal software algorithm is common to both models and ensures fast measurement results in the range of small leak rates of 5 x 10-9 atm cc/s to 5 x 10-12 atm cc/s.

While the UL3000 Fab is designed to ensure the tightness of wafer chambers by means of a helium vacuum test, the optional UL3000 Fab PLUS model also offers the user sniffer leak detection capability for pipes with various process gases. With the sniffer probe, leaks in pipes can be localized quickly and reliably. The SL3000 high-performance sniffer line is up to 10 m long and offers short reaction times even at great distances.

In addition, Inficon has equipped the new leak detector with all the necessary modern interfaces and is Industry 4.0 ready.



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.
