Picarro to Exhibit at Semicon West 2019

Picarro returns to Semicon West with real-time airborne molecular contamination monitoring systems for semiconductor fabs applications


Santa Clara, CA — June 28, 2019 — Picarro Inc., a leading provider of trace gas analyzers for a variety of air monitoring applications, will once again be exhibiting at Semicon West at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, from July 9 - 11.

Picarro will be exhibiting in booth 443. Stop by to learn more about our Real-time AMC monitoring systems for continuous process monitoring of AMC in your facility or quickly confirming and locating a leak during a contamination event. Picarro offers solutions for cleanroom, process tool, FOUP, and environmental AMC monitoring. We’ll also have one of our SI2000 Series analyzers on display and we will be able to perform demonstrations.

The Picarro SI2000 Series analyzers offer the power of extreme sensitivity and accuracy for AMC monitoring in a highly reliable, simple and compact design. These analyzers combine best-in-class performance, SEMI and IEC standards compliance, easy installation and very low cost of annual maintenance compared to any other AMC monitoring technique.

The Picarro AMC Process Monitoring System continuously monitors up to 32 sampling points for real-time AMC event confirmation. The System has been designed to optimize response time in the presence of reactive gases with the lowest memory retention in the valves, connectors, sample lines and sequencer components. The Sample Sequencer Module utilizes a SilcoNert-coated mass flow controller and a fast flow, high volume vacuum pump to draw samples as far away as 200 meters.

The Picarro AMC Portable Leak Detection System can be configured with an 8 or 16 port sequencer to mobilize Picarro gas analyzers for fast detection and confirmation of contamination events.  The Sample Sequencer Module utilizes a SilcoNert-coated mass flow controller and a fast flow, high volume vacuum pump to quickly draw samples up to 50 meters away. This sample sequencer provides for the lowest memory effects in the sample lines and the fastest speed of response for our analyzers.

About Picarro:
Picarro provides industry leading solutions for real-time AMC monitoring. Their cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS) technology offers significant advantages compared with incumbent AMC measurement techniques, such as ion-mobility spectrometry (IMS) and ion chromatography. Picarro’s SI2000 Series analyzers enable fast response to contaminants in the cleanroom in seconds, not hours. With real-time continuous parts-per-trillion (ppt) level analysis, Picarro analyzers provide early warning of contamination events for AMC monitoring in cleanrooms, FOUP, and fab equipment.
