Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. Key Developments

Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. Introduces Primo Integrated Dual-Station Etch and Plasma Downstream Asher

Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. (AMEC) introduced the Primo Integrated Dual-Station Etch and plasma downstream Asher (Primo iDEA(TM)), an industry-first semiconductor processing tool that integrates dual-station dielectric etch and photoresist strip chambers onto the same platform. Targeted for 2xnm and below etch applications, the Primo iDEA leverages AMEC's proven D-RIE etch technology and the Primo platform to reduce the risk of plasma-induced damage (PID), improve process flexibility, lower COO, improve productivity and optimize valuable fab space. Devices being manufactured using 2xnm and smaller etch applications run an increased risk of building up surface charges that can result in plasma induced device damage (PID). The Primo iDEA incorporates four dielectric etch stations and two strip stations into a single system. It replaces four tools: two dielectric etchers, a resist stripper and a wet cleaning station. AMEC's unique integrative approach enables the optimization of each process step to improve overall PID performance. It significantly increases throughput, reduces processing cost and minimizes equipment foot print. With dedicated dielectric etch and downstream ashing (DSA) capabilities, the new offering is optimal for FEOL and BEOL applications involved in volume-producing complex, extremely small devices that are highly sensitive to manufacturing stresses. The downstream asher design used in the Primo iDEA employs a cost-effective dual-chamber concept and remote plasma source (RPS). The RPS is mounted on top of the DSA, enabling reactive species to be delivered to the wafer surface without direct exposure to the plasma source. This helps minimize the risk of PID.

Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. to Debut MOCVD Platform for Low-Cost High-Volume Manufacture of HB-LEDS, with Extendibility to GaN-on-Silicon Applications

Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. will make its market debut with a new multi-reactor Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) cluster tool. The Prismo D-Blue MOCVD platform enables high-volume manufacturing of sophisticated GaN, InGaN and AlGaN ultrathin layered structures required for high-brightness LEDs. With precise parameter control, full automation and an unusually compact design, it's a new-generation MOCVD tool built for today's LED manufacturing must-haves: high productivity, high yields and lowest possible cost-of-ownership. A Prismo tool has already been shipped to a customer's LED production line in China. Hardware Highlights: The patented architecture can accommodate up to four reactors. Each reactor can be controlled independently—an inventive design that enables exceptional manufacturing flexibility. It is the only tool of its kind with this capability. This means it can process in parallel or sequential mode, which reduces cross-contamination and ensures the high crystalline quality required for advanced LED applications. The tool's footprint efficiency is unmatched—nearly 30% smaller than competitive single-reactor systems—making the Prismo a smarter fit for today's LED fabs.
