Modern Class1000 clean rooms, house the equipment necessary to perform thin-film metalization, photo-lithography, dry (plasma etching, plasma ashing) and wet chemical processes at wafer or multi-chip levels. Highly filtered gas and water distribution are used to ensure process reproducibility and dependability in the production. In-house inspection capabilities include many inspection and measurement microscopes, profilometers, wafer and stack test stations, temperature cycling and burn-in chambers. Certified laboratories are used to perform qualification testing, related inspections, and failure analysis.
