Model 2300 NPT-2 - Request a Quote

MODEL 2300 NPT-1 supports all 200mm and 300mm Metrology applications to calibrate the size response curves of tools such as KLA-Tencor SP1, SP2, and all recent KLA-Tencor wafer inspection systems, TopCon 300, 400, 5000, 6000, 7000 series, Hitachi, AMAT Wafer Inspection Systems. This system provides Haze Residue free, true calibration sizes on PSL sphere and Process Particle Depositions. Email John Turner for more details on the NPT-2, “TRUE SIZE CALIBRATION ™ systems. Significant software enhancements have replaced the previous 2300XP1 capabilities.

The NPT-2 incorporates a FOUP based, dual stage automatic wafer handling system, and can be set up for 300mm operation on both stages or 200mm Bridge applications on one stage and 300mm operations on the 2nd stage. Wafer contact is handled by edge grip with the automation system. Up to 50 spot depositions, full depositions or ring depositions can be deposited from 10 different size source bottles. The NPT-2 can handle both PSL Spheres as well as a variety of Process Particles such as Silicon Nitride, Silicon Oxide, Copper, Titanium Oxide, Tungsten, Tantalum; dialetrics, metals and PSL Spheres.

The NPT-2 does not require the operator to mix solutions, as the NPT-2 monitors the concentration, mixes solutions on the fly, and when new solutions are required, the 10 sources are all plug and play. The NPT-2 is designed to support both Metrology size response calibration, as well as producing quantities of particle wafer standards to challenge the cleaning efficiency of your WET Clean stations, and improve the cleaning efficiency of your WET Bench in support of processes with unacceptable particle yields. The NPT-2 is capable of providing a strong ROI, thus paying for itself in a short period of time. Significant software enhancements have replaced the previous 2300XP2 capabilities.

Particle Wafer Deposition SystemDetails - Request a Quote

These high performance, particle deposition systems feature the most advanced particle atomization, electrostatic classification, and deposition technology for creating highly accurate PSL (polystyrene latex size standards for calibrating KLA-Tencor, Applied Materials, TopCon, Hitachi, and ADE wafer inspection systems.
They can also deposit mono-dispersed process particles on wafers to create WET Bench Particle Standards to challenge the cleaning efficiency of WET Clean benches.

Cleaning efficiency improvements of 3.0% to 10% are achievable for cleaning systems with these advanced particle deposition tools creating a superb ROI. Uniform sized process particles of SiO2, Al2O3, TiO2, Si3N4, Si, Ti, W, Ta, Cu, etc. can be deposited on wafers to provide particle on wafer adhesion so wafer cleaning tools can be realistically evaluated.

Both the 2300 XP1 and 2300 NPT-1 systems feature recipe control and automatic multi-spot and multi-size deposition.

Wafer loading and unloading is handled by manual wafer loading.

The 2300 NPT-2 features fully automatic operation in support of 200mm Bridge requirements and 300mm FOUP requirements. The NPT-2 is designed to support both Metrology Size Response calibration of Wafer inspection systems; as well as Wet Bench applications with hands-off, fully automatic operation.
