wet process tools for semiconductor production

Wet process demonstrations

It's a difficult time for the semiconductor industry, difficult time for decisions. Unrest and uncertainty lead to investments being postponed.  But why not using this time effectively to gather relevant information for decision-making? Postponed decisions or not, every crisis is followed by an upswing and for this one should be prepared.

When it is about a decision concerning your next wet process tool, so the AP&S Demo Center supports you in making the right choice. Our team of experienced process engineers will help you to seamlessly check all the relevant decision criteria and to prepare decisions in the best possible way.

How does it work?

You send us your request for a demonstration of a wet process tool, which is of interest for you. Via live video chat you can watch the wet process demonstration and see its results on your screen. Should you be unable to attend? No problem, our team records the process with the integrated camera in the process chamber and sends you the recordings afterwards.

In addition, you will receive a detailed test report including all relevant process and tool parameters, information on the chemical consumption and more, so that based on this data you will be able to calculate the CoO of the equipment for your production.

Based on the process results of the demonstration, our process engineers will prepare a recommendation for a plausible tool configuration that is tailored to your needs and requirements.

Our Demo Center complies with purity class ISO5. This means that all process demonstrations are carried out under production-related conditions. By working under cleanroom conditions, processed wafers from the AP&S Demo Center can be analyzed and checked directly at the customer's site without additional cleaning steps.

The number of customer demonstrations at the AP&S Demo Center has been rising steadily since 2013. In 2018, the Demo Center was expanded with additional equipment and a state-of-the-art microscope with CCD camera was purchased. Both single wafer and some batch process demonstrations are available now. 

We offer the following processes in the Demo Center: Metal Lift-off, PR-Strip, Metal Etch with EndPoint detection, further etching processes (dHF max. 0.5%), mask cleaning, various substrate cleaning processes, NID drying of standard substrates, Taiko, MEMS, thin wafers, etc.

We look forward to your inquiry and guarantee best process performance and individual customer support: demo-center@ap-s.de
