Electronics

Electronics manufacturing (including microelectronics) has grown into one of the largest industries in the United States, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China and Western Europe. The end-products of this industry are critical components of computers, satellite communications, telephone networks, missile guidance systems, consumer electronics, and medical instruments. Dionex instrumentation and applications play a key role in the yield and reliability of these components.

Dionex offers analytical solutions for three main areas of the electronics manufacturing process:

  1. Measuring trace contaminants throughout the fabrication process,
  2. Assaying major constituents of process materials and chemicals, and
  3. Monitoring ultra-pure water and waste water.

Key applications in these areas include part-per-trillion ion analysis in ultra-pure water and determination of trace contaminants in semiconductor grade acids, bases, and solvents.

Dionex is dedicated to continuing development of analytical instrumentation and methods to meet the needs of the growing electronics industry.

Ultrapure Water for Electronics

The end-products of the electronics industry are critical components of computers, satellite communications, telephone networks, missile guidance systems, consumer electronics, and medical instruments. Dionex instrumentation and applications play a key role in the yield and reliability of these components.

Semiconductor Processes and Materials for Electronics

The end-products of the electronics industry are critical components of computers, satellite communications, telephone networks, missile guidance systems, consumer electronics, and medical instruments. Dionex instrumentation and applications play a key role in the yield and reliability of these components.

Disk Drive

Comprehensive anion analysis of drive components prior to manufacturing can significantly reduce the incidence of corrosion and head-to-disk interface failures. High-volume direct injection and preconcentration are the two methods used to increase IC sensitivity to parts-per-billion levels and lower.

Cleanliness Testing

Typically, if the concentration of corrosive ions on a particular assembly is high, the risk of electrochemical failure is greater. The ICS-2100 and ICS-5000 are uniquely designed to provide the data you need to monitor ionic contamination on electronic devices.

Plating Baths for Electronics

High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and ion chromatography (IC) are efficient analytical techniques that can be used to quickly determine both trace and major constituents of a wide variety of electroplating solutions, acid etchants, conversion coatings, cleaning solutions, and the various rinses and wastewaters derived from these solutions.
