Manual benches have simple controls that do not communicate to a host or server. As such, it is possible, and in some cases common, for misprocess to occur due to human error.
Preventing wrong wafer dips and wrong hand pours does not require expensive controller upgrades. It can be accomplished by incorporating a simple bar code system.
The Bar Code Guardian is a web based solution that prevents wrong dips, wrong pours, expired chemical, and more. It includes a handheld PDA (portable data assistant), a bar code labeling system, application software, and some minor host integration. Operators simply bar code swipe the Lot Box (or Cassette) followed by the bench’s bath label. The application returns a Red or Green validation. The same concept extends to chemical pours, expiration, and more.
Given the cost of scrap, rework, and cycle time loss, this system pays for itself in short order. This is especially true for batch systems where large numbers of wafers are impacted by misprocess.

Semiconductor Wet Process Chemicals
These Ionizers are made specifically for mounting inside semiconductor equipment. They are especially suited for wet benches, brush cleaners, and spin cleaning tools where static charge is known to be problematic.
Ionizers neutralize the static charge that would normally be built up on wafers. This helps control particles and it prevents electrical devices degradation.
This product requires no maintenance except for an annual energy source swap
