Wafer Fabrication Process
Shape Cut - Thin sheets are scribed, thick sheets are water jetted and blocks are wire sawn to begin the process with a wafer blank.
CNC Edge - Each wafer is individually edged on a Precision CNC Edge Grinding Station.
Lapping - As required, wafers are lapped to precise thickness or flatness.
Polishing - Double-side Commercial Polish removes subsurface damage and Super Polish creates a pristine finish.
Cleaning - We combine ultrasonics and megasonics on multiple cleaning lines which feed directly into a Class 100 Clean Room.
Inspection - In our Class 100 Optical Clean Room, we inspect to various quality levels under the appropriate lighting conditions.
Packaging - All wafers are packed in pre-cleaned containers, double bagged and vacuum sealed within the Class 100 Clean Room.
Wafer Specifications - Coresix produces wafers to all SEMI Standards including dimensional, flat and notch specifications. In addition, we offer custom specifications designed to your unique needs including, alignment marks, holes, pockets, edge profile, thickness, flatness, surface quality, cleanliness or any other details critical to your application. We also offer these wafers in a broad array of materials including Borosilicate, Aluminosilicate, Quartz and Soda Lime.
