Semiconductor Wafer Cleaning Equipment Market Overview:

Wafer cleaning involves removing particles or impurities from semiconductor surfaces without altering their quality. Having contaminants and particulate impurities on the wafer surface adversely affects the device’s performance and reliability. Various applications require semiconductors to be cleaned to remove residues and improve their performance. As semiconductors become smaller, it becomes increasingly difficult to remove the smaller particles in the cleaning process. A strong electrostatic force between the surface and the impurities also binds the impurities strongly to the surface. Various techniques are used in microelectronic cleaning to remove contamination and impurities, such as supercritical fluid cleaning, cryogenic aerosol cleaning, aqueous cleaning, and dry cleaning.

To avoid adversely affecting or damaging the surface of the silicon, the surface should be carefully cleaned. Solvent cleaning, RCA-1 cleaning, followed by hydrofluoric acid (HF) dip, are the steps involved in cleaning silicon wafers. The silicon wafer is cleaned using two solvents in step 1. After soaking the wafer in acetone for ten minutes at a temperature not exceeding 55 degrees Celsius, the wafer is dried. In the following step, the silicon wafer is dipped into methanol solvent for about five minutes. Deionized water is then used to rinse the wafer, followed by nitrogen gas to blow dry it. A thin layer of oxide is then applied to the surface of the water to prevent impurities from the water surface from sticking to the wafer’s surface in the second step, which involves the RCA clean method. The wafer surface must be cleaned from silicon dioxide in the final step. As a result, any impurities or contamination on the surface of the silicon wafer are removed.

Data is currently the most valuable asset in the world. With many global-level organizations collecting huge volumes of data, electronic devices comprising of high computing power are used for processing and managing such data. As per the Semiconductor Industry Association, the memory segment is the largest growing segment of the semiconductor industry with sales of DRAM and NAND flash products on a rise along with the sales of microprocessors which shall assist in the further proliferation of the semiconductor industry. The introduction of 5G technology has opened new avenues for the growth of this industry considering its utilization in developing an IoT-friendly infrastructure in tech-based applications. With advancements in chip designing technologies per Moore's law has further aided in the fragmentation of the global semiconductor industry.
