Model 2300 NPT-2 Particle Deposition SystemModel 2300 NPT-2 - Request a Quote

The 2300 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 2300 NPT-2 can handle both PSL Spheres as well as a variety of Process Particles such as Silicon Nitride, Silicon Oxide, Titanium Oxide, Tungsten; Copper and Tantalum metals.

The NPT-2 does not require the operator to mix solutions as the NPT-2 monitors the particle concentration, mixing solutions on the fly. When new solutions are required, the 12 particle sources are 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.

Particle Deposition

Details - Request a Quote

These particle deposition systems feature the most advanced particle atomization, electrostatic classification and deposition technology for creating highly accurate PSL Wafer Standards to calibrate KLA-Tencor, Applied Materials, TopCon, Hitachi, and ADE wafer inspection systems. They can also deposit 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.

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.
