One of the many ways you can improve the production value of your semiconductor manufacturing equipment is through coating, refurbishing, and servicing chambers, electrostatic chucks and other components. It increases yields as well as productivity and efficiency. At Vivid Inc., we offer superior EMI shielding services to solve isolation issues and for insulation purposes. Vivid also offers Ceramic Coatings for corrosion resistant dielectric coatings that provide electrical insulation at high temperatures. These ensure a long-lasting and effective product that operates optimally.
Plasma Sprayed Ceramic Coatings provide a high heat insulating barrier to Titanium, Aluminum and Steel substrates that are used in PVD and CVD chambers. Our ceramic coatings have the unique advantage of standing up to corrosive gases at high temperature while also losing minimal dielectric strength.
Ceramic Coatings for Insulation at High Temperatures
Ceramic coatings have a range of uses, but they are especially useful for semiconductors. Because ceramic materials have high melting points and excellent thermal stability, they can withstand the extreme heat generated during semiconductor processes. As such, ceramic coatings are ideal for use on chambers and other components where there is a need for electrical insulation at high temperatures.
The most common type of ceramic coating used in semiconductor equipment is plasma-sprayed Alumina. This material has a high thermal conductivity and can withstand temperatures up to 1600 degrees Celsius. It has excellent electrical properties, making it an ideal choice for insulation purposes.
Ceramic coatings are also highly resistant to corrosion, which is essential for the longevity and effectiveness of semiconductor equipment. They can withstand harsh chemicals and corrosive gases commonly used in the semiconductor industry, ensuring that your equipment remains efficient for longer periods.
At Vivid Inc., we offer a range of ceramic coatings to suit different requirements. Our expert team can also provide custom solutions to meet specific needs. With our superior EMI shielding services and high-quality ceramic coatings, you can trust us to improve the performance and longevity of your semiconductor equipment.
Plasma Sprayed Aluminum Oxide
Plasma Sprayed Aluminum Oxide Coatings are known for their high dielectric strength and excellent insulation properties. They have an operating temperature range of up to 2000°F, which makes them ideal for use in semiconductor manufacturing equipment. These coatings also provide superior thermal shock resistance and can withstand rapid temperature changes without cracking or delamination.
The process of applying Plasma Sprayed Aluminum Oxide Coatings involves heating powdered aluminum oxide in a plasma arc, which then melts and is sprayed onto the substrate. As it cools, it forms a dense layer of ceramic material that adheres tightly to the surface. This creates an impermeable barrier that protects against corrosion, electrical discharges, and other wear factors.
At Vivid Inc., we have the experience and expertise to provide high-quality Plasma Sprayed Aluminum Oxide Coatings for your semiconductor manufacturing equipment. Our team of technicians ensures precision in coating application, resulting in a smooth and uniform finish. We also offer maintenance services to extend the lifespan of your coated components and keep them functioning at their best.
Plasma Spray Yttrium Oxide
Another popular ceramic coating used in the semiconductor industry is Plasma Spray Yttrium Oxide. It has a similar composition and properties to Aluminum Oxide, but with added benefits such as increased resistance to thermal cycling and improved dielectric strength.
Yttrium Oxide coatings are commonly used on high-temperature components in plasma etch chambers, ion implanters, and other semiconductor equipment. They provide excellent protection against chemical erosion and wear, making them essential for maintaining the efficiency and longevity of these critical components.
At Vivid Inc., we offer high-quality Plasma Spray Yttrium Oxide Coatings that are specially formulated to meet the demands of the semiconductor industry. Our coatings have proven to withstand harsh conditions and provide long-lasting insulation and protection.
Electromagnetic shielding protects electronics and cables from electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) by enclosing them with conductive or magnetic materials. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can easily affect the performance of sensitive electronic equipment, so EMI shielding materials need to be electrically conductive and magnetically permeable.
EMI can disrupt and interfere with the signals passing through electrical circuits in consumer devices, medical equipment, commercial applications, and more. Man-made and natural factors can cause electromagnetic interference, so electrical shielding is required to prevent data or system failure, leading to severe financial losses.
Other benefits of an EMI shield:
- Reduces or eliminates the transfer of energy
- Protects from all kinds of interference
- Prevents or isolates energy and emission from a device to stop it from interfering with other devices in the same environment
Protecting your semiconductor product from this damaging and destructive interference is crucial to ensure it functions appropriately and reaches its maximum potential. Investing in EMI shielding services can protect your product from unforeseen EMIs.
Electrostatic chucks (ESCs) are critical components used in semiconductor manufacturing equipment to hold and control the wafers during processing. They offer high precision, stability, and repeatability, making them essential for achieving optimal results.
At Vivid Inc., we provide expert refurbishing services for electrostatic chucks to extend their lifespan and maintain their functionality. Our technicians can repair surface damage, replace worn parts, and reapply coatings to ensure your electrostatic chucks perform at their best.
Physical vapor deposition (PVD) is a popular coating process used in the semiconductor industry to create thin films on components and substrates. PVD chambers are essential for achieving precise and controlled results, making them crucial for your semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
We offer high-quality refurbishment services for PVD chambers to maintain their integrity and functionality. Our technicians can repair any surface damage, replace worn parts, and ensure the chamber is properly sealed for optimal performance.
Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is another common coating process used in the semiconductor industry to create thin films. CVD chambers are crucial for achieving uniform and controlled coatings, making them essential for your manufacturing equipment.
At Vivid Inc., we provide expert refurbishment services for CVD chambers to ensure they continue to perform at their best. Our technicians can repair surface damage
