Advanced Filter Designed to Enhance Start-up and Reduce Defectivity and Tool Downtime
PORT WASHINGTON, NY, July 14, 2015 – Pall Corporation today introduced its new 5 nm Asymmetric Nylon filter designed for advanced patterning applications in semiconductor lithography processes. The new filter was announced at SEMICON West in San Francisco.
The filter, rated at 5 nm, is the cleanest and tightest Nylon 6,6 lithography filter Pall has ever developed, and specifically targets defects in the 10 nm semiconductor patterning process. It delivers a step change in metal, particle, and organics contributions to the photochemical process. The new filter has been specifically designed to reduce filter start-up and tool downtime, and minimize chemical waste associated with starting up finer lithography filters.
“Pall’s Nylon 6,6 lithography products are known for superior defect reduction capability,” said Steve Chisolm, President of Pall Microelectronics. “The new 5 nm Asymmetric Nylon filter is the next step in removal capability while offering lower pressure drop and enhanced adsorption to further reduce defectivity.”
The 5 nm Asymmetric Nylon membrane is available in all point-of-use and bulk lithography filter configurations including the Pall quick-disconnect PhotoKleen™ EZD 3, EZD-3X, and EZD-3XL assemblies employed on today’s most advanced lithography coater systems. The filters will enable significant advances in the effort to pattern at 14 nm and below.
