Comprehensive and rapid FOUP screening
The rapid analysis provided by SIFT-MS instruments can be utilized to screen front-opening unified pod (FOUP) components and completed assemblies prior to their use for transporting wafers. Enhanced screening minimizes risk of wafer contamination by volatile compounds released from FOUP materials. This figure shows rapid screening of a wide range of airborne molecular contaminants (AMCs) in a fully assembled FOUP. Species targeted in a single method include aldehydes, organochlorine and organosulfur species, as well as the organometallic compound, iron pentacarbonyl. Each data cycle generates concentration data that are the equivalent of a complete chromatographic analysis. But the timescale of SIFT-MS is tens of seconds for results, rather than tens of minutes from chromatographic techniques.
