The global chip shortage continues to put pressure on semiconductor manufacturers, who are searching for ways to increase production yields. One solution is to modernize operations with cutting-edge automation and data analysis tools. However, this is costly. Another option is to digitize components and work toward complete digitalization of the entire process. This would allow manufacturers to monitor and control operations in real-time and respond to issues before they slow down production or compromise quality.

TESCOM 64-2600 Series pressure regulators are one of many components evolving to meet modern manufacturing’s digitalization demand and data analysis tools.

To control gas flow and improve yields pressure regulators play a critical role in semiconductor manufacturing.

…To understand the positive impact a high purity pressure regulator can have on a semiconductor manufacturing operation and its yield, consider a typical gas cabinet within the larger context of gas delivery systems. Gas lines start out 100% clean and free of impurities, so regulators that are introduced into the process must also be 100% clean.

Innovations in Pressure Regulators Support Yield Optimization in Semiconductor Manufacturing by Julia Villa describes how new component-level technologies are leading to improved quality, safety, and yield in semiconductor manufacturing.

The impact of digitizing pressure regulators is that it eliminates the opportunity for human error in recording data, eliminates the delay between when the operator records data and when action is taken, and does not require the operator to come close to the gas cabinet. However, this is costly. Another option is to digitize components and work toward complete digitalization of the entire process. This would allow manufacturers to monitor and control operations in real-time and respond to issues before they slow down production or compromise quality.

 

TESCOM high-purity regulators are used for applications that require high cleanliness levels, low leakage rates, and accurate pressure control.

For manufacturers who need to replace or update their gas delivery regulators, partnering with a supplier that has semiconductor manufacturing expertise and experience is critical to success.

…Engaging a supplier in manufacturing challenges and goals can also lead to advances in control technologies that are beneficial for the manufacturer as well as for the industry at large.

 

In addition to helping you reduce yield rates due to contaminants and inaccuracies in gas control, Emerson can minimize downtime resulting in lost productivity and increase capacity by adding new factories, production lines, etc.

By integrating digitized components and working toward complete digitalization of the entire process, manufacturers can monitor and control operations in real-time and respond to issues before they slow down production or compromise quality.

Embracing and integrating new component-level technologies is a way to take steps toward measurable improvements in quality, safety, and yield. Read the entire article Innovations in Pressure Regulators Support Yield Optimization in Semiconductor Manufacturing
