The YES-G1000LMC™ is designed for uniform cleaning of fully loaded lead frames and carrier born devices. The system utilizes a low plasma generation frequency (40 kHz) to reduce chamber and product heating sometimes caused by high frequency (13.56 MHz) systems. As a result, YES-G1000LMC is ideal for cleaning even electronically sensitive devices.
YES-G1000LMC is specifically tailored to hold two open-sided magazines (although more may fit depending on size), and the chamber is easily configured to accommodate different sample sizes and contamination levels.
YES-G1000LMC uses capacitive RF plasma generation. Using low frequency plasma (40 kHz) reduces parasitic capacitive reactance losses for more efficient plasma generation (see plasma cleaning).
Plasma is generated between active trays and grounded trays or chamber walls. Horizontal plasma flows over stacked samples within the magazine. The YES-G1000LMC may be used with one to four plasma generation cells. The RF generator has variable power and a variable matching network so that system operation is load independent.
YES-G1000LMC offers three mild anisotropic plasma modes. Plasma direction can come from both sides simultaneously, left to right, or right to left. By changing positions of the slide-in electrodes, the system can be easily configured for the following modes:
Three plasma gas inputs are provided for quick selection of an appropriate single gas or a two-gas sequence (such as oxygen followed by argon), depending on contamination chemistry. A "backfill gas" input is also provided so the chamber can be vented back to atmospheric pressure in an inert atmosphere (typically nitrogen) at the completion of your process.
The YES-G1000LMC's parallel plate chamber configuration ensures consistent plasma cleaning throughout your magazine. The chamber accommodates two open-sided magazines.
