What is the Inkjet Cartridge Effect in Air Filtration Performance?

What is the Inkjet Cartridge Effect in Air Filtration Performance?

A “one size fits all” approach for chemical air filtration entails a productivity and safety risk in commercial environments reliant on pure air quality. Trying to use one type of chemical air filter for every scenario may provide protection, but without optimization the protection is both limited and temporary.

Sharing Semiconductor Industry Sustainability Plans at the SEMI Earth Month Lightning Talks

In recognition of Earth Day, SEMI’s Climate Equity & Social Impact Working Group (CESI) organized a series of lighting talks from member organizations to highlight their progress on sustainability. We heard from companies around the semiconductor industry, as well as Entegris engineer Paola Gonzalez. They shared a number of different strategies for mitigating climate impact. Here are some of the key takeaways.

One in a Billion: AMC Filtration Essential to a Safer, Healthy Environment

Airborne molecular contamination (AMC) is common to every environment. These contaminants are not physical particles such as those found in airborne dust or pathogens. AMC is gas molecules that are part of and move with air. These molecules are the result of outgassing or emissions from virtually anything that can be found in a given setting, from humans and animals to equipment, materials and processes, as well as external AMC sources. Sensitivity to these gases varies widely in each environment.

Hydrogen Gas: Revolutionizing Semiconductors and Clean Energy

Hydrogen composes about 75% by mass of the normal matter in the universe, existing as H2 gas under standard conditions. This abundance of supply creates opportunities in numerous applications, including semiconductor manufacturing, for which hydrogen is considered a bulk gas and is employed in many parts of the ecosystem.

Critical Factors in Achieving a Strong Supply Chain for Your Cell and Gene Therapy

Are you looking for a supply partner to help you scale cell and gene therapy (CGT) manufacturing? Do you need a partner that can help you keep up with pre-existing capacity increases? These challenges may lead to some hard choices.

Automotive Reliability and Semiconductor Manufacturing: How Far Did We Come?

Last year, Semiconductor Digest assembled six panelists from the world's leading semiconductor and automotive manufacturers and suppliers - including Volkswagen, Texas Instruments, Robert Bosch, Hyperion, and KLA, and Entegris - and asked them about the state of automotive electronics. They discussed issues such as the shift to automotive quad computing, the emphasis on infotainment, and the rise of alternative vehicle technologies such as electrification and self-driving.

Creating a Future-Proof Materials Ecosystem for the $1T Semiconductor Era

Growth is good; no one in the semiconductor industry would argue this point. And according to Gartner, there’s a lot of “good” on the horizon. Current forecasts call for semiconductor sales to more than double in this decade, going from $400 billion in 2020 to $1T by 2030. With growth, however, come growing pains. To reach the heights of $1T-plus in semiconductor sales, the industry must evolve by significantly increasing not only the amount of wafers and wafer starts annually but also the amount of investment in equipment and materials. Semiconductor materials consumption during the same decade is expected to double as well. This creates great opportunity for materials suppliers, but it also will mean taking a hard look at the materials supply chain – what are the challenges, and how can they be addressed?

Is your Single-Use Solution Ready for Cell and Gene Therapy and Synthetic Gene Production?

The growth of the biomanufacturing industry has created a demand for new and high-performance fluid handling systems and technologies for the management and storage of cell and gene therapy intermediates and gene-based medicines. New modalities come with risks that don’t yet have good solutions.

New Materials: Smoothing the Transition to Molybdenum

Changing one material in the semiconductor manufacturing process has a cascading effect on multiple process steps. Consider the replacement of tungsten (W) and copper (Cu) with molybdenum (Mo). Integrated device manufacturers (IDMs) are implementing Mo in advanced designs, focusing on 2-nanometer (nm) nodes and below. Mo is highly conductive, can be deposited without a titanium or titanium nitrid

Not Your Average Wafer: Solving CMP Challenges in High-Volume SiC Production

Silicon carbide (SiC) has become popular with chipmakers. Its wide-bandgap structure offers many design benefits for the operations of power semiconductors. Compared to silicon, SiC wafers enable the fabrication of faster, more efficient devices that can both operate at higher temperatures and remain stable when deployed in extreme temperature environments. Processing SiC wafers using the same materials and methods as silicon wafers is not a viable option, however.

Avoid Powder Pitfalls and Keep Your Business Clean

Powder can be a mess when not delt with properly. Have you ever dropped a bag of flour on the floor after coming home from the store? Cleaning up the mess is terrible (speaking from experience, don’t add water or you just make glue). Now imagine doing that in a manufacturing suite with powdered media. The powder is literally designed to grow cells, so anything you miss is just a new petri dish that can generate contamination. Plus, there’s the added challenge of having to validate that the room is clean after attending to the spill.
