New AMC and Epi Monitors for Semiconductor Manufacturers

Three New Products Showcased at SEMICON West

With the shift to lower deposition temperatures and pressures, moisture has become the main culprit in oxide defects. The HALO QRP, developed for manufacturers using Low-temperature Epitaxy (LT-Epi), can monitor each process step and report real-time moisture concentration to the tool control system.

Tiger Optics also has specialized in addressing the demanding challenges of continuous AMC monitoring for semiconductor fabrication. Based on Tiger's new global platform, the T-I Max line excels in detecting ppt levels of the three most damaging contaminants in cleanrooms: HCl, HF, and NH3.

At SEMICON West, Tiger Optics also unveiled its redesigned mobile cart to package its analyzers for cleanroom environments. The GO-cart can easily accommodate up to four T-I Max analyzers. Small, light, yet sturdy, the cart also provides great convenience and control with the top-mounted central touchscreen.

Improved Formaldehyde Detection

HALO 3 CH2O now with 2.5 ppb MDL

Detecting low-ppb levels of formaldehyde is extremely important for ensuring quality of hydrogen for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). Recognizing the stringent requirements for this application, Tiger Optics now offers improved detection limits for CH2O in N2 and H2, helping to ensure SAE J2719 or ISO 14687 compliance.

The New Spark Methane

Trace CH4 Detection at a Popular Price

The Spark CH4 extends Tiger’s cost-efficient CRDS platform to the detection of trace methane for a host of applications, from process control to quality and safety assurance in air separation plants. With sensitivity as low as 6 ppb, the Spark CH4 replaces cumbersome mid-20th-century technology. 



Tiger’s CRDS Garners CGA Approval!

The Compressed Gas Association Standard, CGA G-10.1, Commodity Specification for Nitrogen, now cites Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy as an approved method for moisture measurement. Based on a unanimous decision by the members of the Atmospheric Gases and Equipment Committee in August 2016, this change is welcome news to our many users in the industrial gas community. Specializing in CRDS since 2001, Tiger offers a proven range of moisture analyzers for N2. Contact us for more information or to request a quote today!
