FluidJet™ Metal Lift-Off Processing  

RENA NA's Patented Fluidjet™ Metal Lift-Off technology (Patent No. 9,070,631) provides metal removal utilizing precise hydraulic forces with unique robot agitation to maximize coverage resulting in reliable performance with increased throughput, increased reclaim and a reduction in chemical usage.


Applications

  • Acetone and IPA Rinse
  • EKC Solvent blends
  • NMP
  • DMSO
  • Intelligent Fluids LisoPure

Solving Key Metal
Lift-Off Issues

  • Low Throughput -  Immersion and Single Chamber Single wafer tools are much slower requiring multiple tools for production needs
  • Scrap Due To Handling - Operators handling wafers to inspect, manually peal or spray off re-deposited metal, Robot transfer arm drift
  • Re-deposition Of Metal - Tanks & Chambers leave metal pieces in suspension in the soak/strip process causing subsequent focus errors in photo and yield loss/shorts
  • Device Damage - Scratching due to metal debris in suspension or being stripped across the wafer contacting devices at relatively high speed and force
  • Equipment Cost - Single wafer tools cost more than $1.5 million for comparable WPH
  • Solvent Usage - High consumption of solvent 1.5 –2.3 L/wafer w/spray @ 1200-1800 PSI Precious Metal Loss - Due to chamber rinse cycles (drain manifold), messy cleanouts (Glitter)
  • High Level Of PM Requirements - Regular metal cleanouts required to avoid drain valve or filter clogs and flow system component damage due to excessive PM requirements, messy chamber cleanouts, nozzle replacements, robot arm drift realignment with single wafer tools

FlexView Advanced Process Monitoring

Flexview software enables equipment and process engineers to review the processing conditions of a specific lot ID at a glance. FlexView software does this by providing a graphic representation of all existing monitored conditions & tolerances, then storing that data in a file that is specific to the Lot ID that was being processed at that time. In the event of a yield-loss on a particular lot, the process engineer can quickly identify if the wet station processed that lot within the required specifications. In this way, the system can be much more easily eliminated as a possible cause of the yield loss even. FlexView eliminates the need to interpret large amounts of data in the data log. This creates the opportunity for greater system optimization and process transparency while improving the overall operator experience.
