Wet bench plan - details
In order to minimize the impact of the lighting and filter work on our users we have developed the following plan for the wet benches. Acid 23 and Solvent 22 will temporarily be available to everyone during the light/filter change event.
- Week 1
Area 1: Processing normally done a Acid Benches 72, 73, and 83 will move to Acid 23 in 1480C. Acid 23 does not have a hot plate. Processing normally done at Solvent Benches 83 and 84 will move to Solvent Benches 14 and 22. Solvent 22 has some storage area, Solvent 14 has 2 ultrasound tanks and a PRS-2000 crystallizing dish.
- Week 3
Area 6: We will lose access to 1440A and 1440B (Area 1) during this time. We will follow the same protocols as Area 1. We will work to maintain access to the solvent cabinet so people have access to private photoresists.
