As consumers continue to demand smaller, lighter and safer electronic devices, all phases of the semiconductor and electronics manufacturing process, from research and development, to manufacturing and packaging, are challenged with potential trace level chemical contaminations or particulates in the Process, which will cause reliability issues or failure in the end-product.
Semiconductor, or Integrated Circuitry (IC) R&D managers need to set the stage for full scale production by developing the downstream process standards that will impact device fabrication, the fine chemicals used, QA/QC methods and instrumentation, as well as testing for assembly, housing and packaging components. Semiconductor, display device and electronics manufacturing facilities need easy to use, high sensitivity solutions to detect ppt and ppq impurities, while running 24/7 manufacturing operations.
Internal and external manufacturing workplace environments must also be monitored and controlled on top of ensuring quality processes and product. Occupational and environmental exposure to hazardous and potentially harmful chemicals and gases like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), airborne molecular contamination (AMC) and industrial waste, among others, are challenging to keep up with due to the highly competitive and constantly changing nature of the industry.
