The Future of Electronic Chemical Delivery.
Ion implantation is a key process in the fabrication of semiconductors, whereby the flow of electricity is modulated in silicon wafers to make transistors - the building blocks of the chips fueling the devices of tomorrow. To so do, complex and highly toxic electronic chemicals must be handled and precisely implanted in wafers at high voltage - a delicate process.
ION-X™ is a new platform for the safe packaging and delivery of electronic chemicals. Integrating atomically-precise chemistries, ION-X™ safely stores electronic chemicals sub-atmospherically, and then delivers them to the tool on demand. Used by Tier-1 semiconductor manufacturers globally, ION-X™ is manufactured by NuMat and distributed globally by Merck Electronics, a Division of Merck KGaA company, and market leader in advanced electronic materials.
