Gases and engineering company The Linde Group, a supplier of electronic materials, is investing in the expansion of existing products to improve business continuity planning (BCP), while adding new products with improved purity to meet the growing needs of sub-10nm semiconductor factories and advanced flat panel manufacturers.
Expanded capacity of fluorine/nitrogen mixtures
Linde has expanded capacity for fluorine/nitrogen mixtures at Medford, Oregon for etching and chamber cleaning applications.
- This allows both low- and high-pressure fluorine and nitrogen mixture production.
- On-site high-purity fluorine production minimizes third-party supply issues.
- The product line is expanding to include fluorine/argon mixtures in place with tri-mix capability(fluorine/argon/nitrogen) later in 2018.
- This facility complements fluorine mixture production at the Linde Alpha, New Jersey facility.
New precursors to meet customer requirements
New elements of innovation continue to emerge in CVD, ALD, and ALE precursors such as high-volume supply capabilities, process solutions to deliver quality in our advanced precursors and an applications lab to support new materials development. Linde is developing deposition precursors and etch gases: silicon precursors, digermanium mixtures, high K and metal gate precursors, isotope gases and etch gases such as CF3I (trifluoroiodomethane) and custom fluorinated silane.
“Linde recognizes that our customers continue to make investments in new processes and technologies, and we are committed to investing with them for the materials they will require now and in the future,” states Matt Adams, Head of Sales and Marketing for Linde Electronics and Specialty Products.
Linde Electronics will be exhibiting at the SEMICON West tradeshow in San Francisco July 10-12. Its focus will be on the quality, expertise, commitment and environmental leadership that Linde Electronics brings to the semiconductor industry through such offerings as electronic specialty gases, on-site solutions, materials recycling and recovery and SPECTRA® nitrogen plants.
SEMICON West is the annual tradeshow for the micro-electronics manufacturing industry. All visitors are welcome to visit Linde in booth number 5644 in the North hall in the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
