Next Generation Safe Delivery Source® Dopant Material Storage and Delivery Package

The Entegris Safe Delivery Source® (SDS®) package has been the leader in providing subatmospheric specialty gas storage and delivery for ion implant dopant materials since its inception more than twenty years ago.

As semiconductor devices advance, increased demands are placed on the purity, productivity, and safety of electronic gases. SDS4, the fourth generation of the SDS product line is designed to address these increasingly stringent demands.

blog-article-inline-12097-1200x600In our paper, “Next Generation Safe Delivery Source® (SDS®4) Dopant Material Storage and Delivery Package” we present key advancements in adsorbent-based packages for storing, handling, and delivering semiconductor dopant gases. Desirable characteristics and properties of adsorbents for use in this application are reviewed. The screening methodology and performance of various carbon and metal organic framework (MOF) adsorbents are evaluated against these characteristics.

Further discussion is included on the testing, design, and selection of cylinder features to continuously improve the SDS product line, making SDS4 the safest and highest performing sub-atmospheric storage and delivery package to- date. Final product performance is demonstrated and verified through beamline ion implantation tool data.

Reducing our Environmental Impact: How We’re Making Biopharma Manufacturing More Sustainable

Biopharma manufacturing is an essential part of the healthcare industry, producing lifesaving treatments for patients around the world. Traditional manufacturing methods can have a significant environmental impact driven by stainless steel equipment requiring extensive cleaning and sterilization processes that consume substantial amounts of water and energy in addition to cleaning agents.

Achieving the Third Dimension Through Molecular Modeling

For decades, the semiconductor device manufacturing mantra was “How do we make them smaller, cheaper, and faster?” The pursuit of Moore’s Law – the doubling of transistors on a chip every two years – was achieved through planar scaling. But that approach could only go on for so long. The mantra now is “How do we improve power, performance, area, and cost (PPAC)?” At the 14 nm node, it was clear that the best way to push the limits of semiconductor device PPAC was to take it into the third dimension.
