Concord, CA, July 14, 2005 – Based on the successful FlexTRAK™ platform, Nordson MARCH announces the release of FlexTRAK-WR for high-volume plasma processing of semiconductor wafers. FlexTRAK-WR is a high-throughput system designed to process semiconductor wafers up to 300 mm, loaded into multiple cassettes or Front Opening Universal Pods (FOUP).
“There is a rapidly growing market for advanced plasma processing of semiconductor wafers after final passivation but before traditional back-end processes,” said Peter Bierhuis, President of Nordson MARCH. “We are leveraging our market leadership and applications expertise in back-end plasma processing to this new space. FlexTRAK-WR brings our production-proven advanced plasma technology to high-volume semiconductor wafer processing with an attractive value proposition.“
FlexTRAK-WR is capable of direct, downstream or ion-free (patent-pending) plasma processing for a wide range of semiconductor applications. FlexTRAK-WR three-axis symmetrical chamber and proprietary process control provides unmatched process uniformity while minimizing cycle times.
Nordson MARCH's proprietary software offers an intuitive graphical user interface with easy touch-screen programming. FlexTRAK-WR is both Internet- and LAN-ready, and real-time process representation allows statistical data gathering. FlexTRAK-WR easily integrates with other process equipment and is SMEMA compatible.
