Donaldson High Purity Products, a division of the Donaldson Company, Inc. focused on the design and manufacture of gas-phase contaminant filtration solutions for the semiconductor industry, today announced immediate availability of a new point-of-use filter. Designed in cooperation with major optical lithography tool manufacturers and employing multiple filtration mechanisms, the LITHOGUARD POU effectively controls gas-phase contamination that effects image quality and causes degradation of optical elements, thereby improving yield rates and increasing uptime of lithography exposure tools. With the capability for removing bases, acids and organic gas phase contaminants at high efficiencies, the LITHOGUARD POU is ideal for the chemical filtration of pressurized air streams in critical point-of-use applications.

Donaldson is a supplier of chemical filtration solutions for the Semiconductor industry with products targeted at high efficiency removal of airborne molecular contaminants of concern to processes and tools. The product range includes Point-of-Use filters with applications for process air, CDA and nitrogen, chemical filtration systems for tools (Lithography, Vertical Furnaces, Mask making... ) and a new range of laminar flow, low pressure drop media for minienvironments (wafer stockers, reticle stockers, laminar flow benches) All these applications require filtration to sub-ppb levels of bases, organics and acid gases and careful selection of low-offgassing materials. Based in Leuven, Belgium, Donaldson Europe serves the European Semiconductor market. Please Click Here for more information.

Christ Water Technology Group (CWT) is to deliver a high-performance ultrapure water system to mainland China. This unit will produce 270m3/hour of ultrapure water for semiconductor production. The value of the order is a two-digit million-dollar figure Spectrian has agreed to pay Cree Microwave $5mn in exchange for the termination of a December 2000 purchase and supply agreement that was scheduled to expire in June 2003. Akrion has received a repeat order for a $2mn GAMA advanced front-end-of-line (AFeOL) cleaning tool to be installed at a European facility. The customer will use the new GAMA in the production of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). The wet station uses a patented DIO3 (high concentration ozonated DI water) organic cleaning tank. Motorola is to use Optonics EmiScope-I diagnostic solution for node level timing measurement of flip-chip and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) devices. EmiScope-I is currently in production in two Motorola diagnostic facilities. EmiScope provides a multi-GHz bandwidth and highly accurate, extendible diagnostic platform to measure switching (timing) events through photon emission measurement.
