  • Patent number: 6730604
    Abstract: A method for dynamically maintaining compatible contamination levels of equipment, wafer Lots and FOUP's used for automated processing of a Split Lot of wafers. Processing of the test Lot and the production Lot continue as a single Lot along the production processing path up to a split condition process. Processing of the production Lot is put on hold and its designated contamination level is saved until the alternate processing or test Lot processing is completed. The contamination level of the Split Lot is reevaluated based on the completed process(es) and will be designated at the same level it carried at the Split or a higher contamination level if appropriate. The two Lots are then merged and given the highest contamination level of either the saved level or the Split Lot. The two Lots are then processed according to the original predefined process steps and at the redefined contamination level.

  • Patent number: 6139636
    Abstract: A spray coating device for coating a rotating wafer according to the invention is disclosed. The spray coating device comprises a spray head having a plurality of spray holes which are located on one end thereof with more in number on both sides than on the center of the end for uniformly spraying a chemical liquid on the rotated wafer. Since spray holes are more in number on the both sides than on the center of the end, the rotated wafer can be uniformly spray coated with the chemical liquid even though several spray holes are congested.

  • Patent number: 6076569
    Abstract: A cup rinse with a valvular ring according to the invention is disclosed. The valvular ring has a plurality of valves in the center thereof. When an inlet tube is inserted through the valvular ring, the valves are forced to open thereby to allow a chemical liquid to flow into the cup resin via the inlet tube. Inversely when the inlet tube is completely pulled out of the valvular ring, the valves are tightly closed without a chemical liquid leakage. Accordingly, the cup rinse of the invention can prevent peripheral precision instruments, such as a motor, from damage by a leaky chemical liquid. Thus, the cup rinse of the invention cannot cause any unnecessary cost consumption.

  • Patent number: 6015096
    Abstract: A speed controller with scales according to the invention is used to adjust the amount of an air flow thereby to control the amount of a chemical liquid sprayed. The speed controller includes a housing, a controller body and a transparent tube. The controller body is partly inserted in the housing and has a rotary button located at one end thereof and outside the housing. The rotary button has a slot and an indicator thereon, wherein the indicator is located at one end of the slot. The transparent tube, having a vertical scale on the side thereof and a circular scale on the top circumference thereof, encloses the rotary button. In the invention, the position of the rotary button can be determined by reading the vertical scale and the circular scale so as to precisely control the amount of a chemical liquid sprayed, thereby increasing yield and improving engineering analysis.

  • Patent number: 6012607
    Abstract: A photoresist dispensing system used in a photoresist coating machine includes a pump, a switch valve, a sucking-back valve, a solenoid valve, a first set of speed controllers a second set of speed controllers and a sucking-back speed controller. The pump is used to transport liquid photoresist to a wafer through the switch valve. The sucking-back valve is controlled by solenoid valve through the sucking-back speed controller to produce or release a sucking force on the liquid photoresist to prevent it from undesired dropping onto the wafer. The solenoid valve also controls the switch valve and the pump to start or stop photoresist dispensing. The first set of speed controllers is coupled between the switch valve and the solenoid valve and the second set of speed controller is coupled between the pump and the solenoid valve.
