When storing, die and wafers should be kept between 18 and 24 degrees Celsius, with a relative humidity of less than 30%, in a vacuum-sealed container, and in a dry, clean environment (such as nitrogen). Issues like those mentioned above may arise with even greater frequency if die and wafers are not stored properly.
The Global Wafer storage system market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
CODEX Storage is introduced by Genmark Automation. The CODEX Storage combines the functions of stocking, sorting, and metrology into a single tool that stores and distributes different substrates on demand, of a specified quality, and in a specified quantity.
The functions of these customarily non-revenue-generating tools can be combined, freeing up fab floor area for production machinery and allowing a facility to increase productivity and yield. A high-quality, extremely trustworthy instrument that can perform the tasks of sorting, stocking, and metrology all at once is clearly in demand.
The advantages of keeping track of, measuring, and storing all media in one place while taking up less cleanroom floor space become immediately clear given the ongoing push to increase yield and productivity.
“The glass wafer for bond/debond, reticle, and reticle box storage are important targets for this sort of integrated system outside of the traditional Si wafer market. As an illustration, consider how crucial concentricity, regularity, and thickness are for glass wafers used in bond/debond.
They can easily decide when a wafer’s useful lifespan is up and when to change it out, maximising productivity, by keeping all media in one place and having onboard metrology.
No matter if they are original equipment makers or integrated device manufacturers, CODEX’s modular design is simple to adapt to their particular requirements. It is a high-capacity system that is easily expandable, has a configurable design, and is performance optimised for high throughput.
Each carousel can hold up to 1,700 wafers using 300mm wafers, for instance, based on the thickness. The device works with reticles and plates that are 200mm, 300mm, and 450mm in diameter.
