Major RF Supplier Chooses ClassOne Spray Solvent Tools

ClassOne Technology | September 25, 2014

Kalispell, MT – ClassOne Technology just announced a five-unit order for its next generation of batch-processing spray solvent tools, the Trident™ SST. The new tools were sold to one of the industry’s leading manufacturer’s of RF Power semiconductors where they will be used primarily in photoresist stripping.

“This customer was particularly interested in the advanced Deluge technology used in the new Trident SSTs,” said Win Carpenter, ClassOne’s Executive Vice President. “They are looking forward to these tools providing a faster, more efficient rinse, as well as a reduction in particles.”

Utilizing Deluge technology, the Trident SSTs deliver a continuous, uniform cascade of solvent or rinse water instead of using spray nozzles, and this dramatically enhances process performance. The elegant and robust chemical delivery process cuts chemical consumption, shortens process time and can also lower defect counts. In addition to increasing productivity, the new SSTs also significantly reduce capital expense, since Trident systems are roughly half the cost of competitive spray solvent tools.

“We had two goals for our new Trident SSTs,” said Byron Exarcos, ClassOne’s President. “We wanted to deliver state-of-the-art cleaning — but at a very affordable price, to serve a broader market.”

The new Trident Spray Solvent Tools are available for 75 to 300mm substrates, with one or two process chambers, up to four heated chemical tanks and a wide range of rotors. The tools also include the very successful Windows® 7-based Solaris™ controller as well as remote login, data logging, GEM/SECS-II communications and reliability reporting.

ClassOne Technology first introduced the Trident SST family at SEMICON West in July of this year. The company will also be exhibiting at SEMICON Europa, Booth #836, October 7-9 in Grenoble, France. For additional information, visit
