High Volume Semiconductor Photoresist Processing For WLCSP – The SCENE 12 and the SCENE 12-MAX.

The next act in the advancement of resist processing systems, the Scene12TM for up to 300mm wafers (and the Scene8TM for up to 200mm wafers) provides more capability in less space at lower cost than any system from any manufacturer world wide.

With the introduction of the SCENE 12-MAX™, S-Cubed has taken the SCENE 12 architecture to its fullest potential with more stacked processes, higher reliability, and lower maintenance requirements than ever before, while keeping overall footprint low.

S-Cubed Scene 12 Photolithographic Processing Equipment

The S-Cubed Scene 12-Max

All Scene 12 machines are specifically designed for throughput and reliability in a high volume production environment.

Scene 12 Standard Features, not options

The Scene 12 processes wafers up to 300mm in diameter.

Our system can instantly do recipe based interchange of 300mm and 200mm wafers and acheives perfect handling of flats on large wafer sizes.

Our Scene 12 has up to 9 process modules:Scene-12-WLCSP-201x300

  • Multiple spinners
    • Develop/Coat
    • Programmable dispense heights
    • Dual arm dispensers up to four fluids per dispense arm
    • Self Cleaning Spin Cup
  • Multiple Thermal modules
    • Bake, programmable pin height and fixed proximity combination.
    • Reducing costs and downtime our hot plate does NOT require cleaning.
    • Chill plate is simple no moving parts
  • High Speed Dual End Effector Robot
    • Swaps at process modules and cassettes
    • Industry Exclusive precision wafer centering on the end effector at each wafer move, user programmable. The positioning takes place during the move.
    • Tool teaches itself to center the wafer precisely at the spinners. Built in metrology for wafer centering.
  • Fan Filter unit and ionizer
  • For Coating and Developing films from 1 micron to 100 microns.
