Load Locked and Optimized for Lift-Off Processes

The Temescal FC-4400 represents our ultimate high-throughput platform for lift-off oriented evaporation. This system is designed to support the metallization of thirty 150mm wafers per load via high capacity e-beam evaporation.

The load locked, 44 inch x 44 inch x 28 inch product chamber can be pumped by as many as two dedicated, high throughput 16-inch cryogenic pumps. The dual-cryopump option makes it possible to pump this large chamber in 15 minutes from atmosphere to pressures in the range of 10E-7. During wafer exchanges, the source chamber is maintained at high vacuum by the independent pumping of a dedicated 10-inch cryopump.

Key features:

  • Product chamber dimensions: 23.5″ high x 44″ x 44″
  • 25.5″ diameter source tray
  • Standard source-to-substrate distance: 38″
  • S-S distance with optional source well extension collar: 42″
  • Optional second product and source chamber cryopumps

Temescal Control System

The Temescal Control System (TCS) provides fully integrated, recipe-driven process and vacuum control. Operating in any of three password-protected modes, the TCS also offers process variable monitoring, process and historical trend tracking, and process data logging.

TCS System Map During Deposition

 

The TCS Automatic Mode

Auto Mode operation provides fully automated execution of user-programmed recipes consisting of up to twenty process steps, as well as full abort diagnostics. The TCS Auto Mode also offers independent autopump and autovent operations, automated cryopump regeneration, and automated rate-of-rise testing.

Manual Mode Operation

The TCS Manual Mode enables the user to set process parameters, operate major components and subsystems individually with full interlock protection, and execute nonautomated single-film deposition processes.

Service Mode Operation

The TCS Service Mode provides noninterlocked low-level control over any of the system’s valves, pumps, motors, or power supplies.
