Foamtec International Contamination Control Division

With the advent of 10nm, 7nm, 5nm and future 3nm processing nodes, equipment and process engineers require tighter contamination control to meet equipment uptime and yield budgets.

Foamtec’s industry-leading chamber cleaning products, combined with our knowledge of the latest preventive maintenance and particle troubleshooting BKMs allow for step-change improvements in the following areas:

Reduction is green to green times due to faster and more thorough removal of process by-product from wafer processing tools.

Improvements in post PM particle adders and first-pass qual rates.

Root cause identification of the sources of particle escalations, scratch defect and lithography hotspots events.
Reductions in tech time and reclean rates required to PM tools.

Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) Chamber Preventive Maintenance Cleaning
