High Purity Chemical Manufacturing
To enable the effective manufacturing of electronic devices for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, fabs (integrated circuit manufacturers) are challenged with producing denser and more complex chips with smaller line spacing and 3D features. The digital transformation we are all experiencing as consumers presents new challenges to material makers, as well as opportunities. Contamination control remains one of the largest challenge as integrated circuit (IC) technology advances. Better contamination control can significantly improve yield, and a one percent yield improvement can mean up to $150 million per year in net profit for the fab. As a supplier to these fabs, the opportunities to enable these improvements exist in part within the purity of the materials.
Performance Targets: Achieving Operational Excellence in Chemical Manufacturing by Optimizing Contamination Controls
Operational excellence (OE) is of upmost importance when manufacturing high-quality, semiconductor grade chemicals and their raw materials. Streamlining and expanding operations, improving quality, and maintaining differentiation are all key activities toward achieving OE. However, all these activities come at a cost, whether it be a financial impact or an impact on other opportunities. Filtration and purification of raw materials and chemicals can improve quality by reducing metals and particles, decreasing variability, and perhaps streamlining manufacturing processes.
