General Implanter Hazards

It is the responsibility of the user to maintain correct and safe operating conditions for this equipment at all times. Varian Semiconductor Equipment Associates assumes no liability for damages caused by improper or unsafe operation. Service of equipment must be performed by trained and authorized personnel only.

DANGER

High Voltage Hazard

Ion implanters employ voltages that are dangerous and may be fatal to personnel. Do not attempt to defeat the protective interlock systems. Keep unauthorized personnel away from the implanter area during high voltage servicing.

DANGER

Cardiac Pacemaker Hazard

Strong magnetic fields can cause cardiac pacemakers to fail. The analyzer, source and corrector magnets produce strong magnetic fields. People with cardiac pacemakers must never work near strong magnetic fields.

DANGER

Poisonous Gas Hazard

Ion Implanters typically operate with gaseous sources containing Arsine, Phosphine, and Boron Trifluoride. Each element is highly toxic to humans even in minute concentrations. Evacuate the area immediately if the presence of any of these gases is suspected. Toxic residues and substances can be present on beamline, vacuum system and wafer handling components. Personnel must be protected by appropriate clothing when working on these components. A restricted area must be set aside for cleaning contaminated components. Residues and cleaning materials must be disposed of under procedures mandated for hazardous materials.

WARNING

Radiation Hazard

This equipment can produce dangerous levels of radiation when improperly operated. Do not exceed the maximum rated operating specifications. Do not remove or alter the position of X-ray shielding installed in any part of the implanter.

WARNING

Phosphorus Residue Fire Hazard

Parts exposed to phosphorus-based dopants are coated with phosphorus residue. Striking a surface at an angle with a piece of metal generates a spark. The possibility of spontaneous ignition exists. The possibility of spontaneous high temperature oxidation, with exposure to air exists. Using flammable solvents or hydrogen peroxide to clean phosphorus residue is a fire hazard. Have a fire extinguisher available while parts are removed and during maintenance procedures. Eliminate sparking, arcing, open flames, and practices that strike or abrade the part. Do not use flammable solvents for cleaning. Thoroughly wash contaminated surfaces with DI water.

WARNING

Mechanical Hazard

Drive assemblies have sufficient power to cause injury. Keep hands, fingers, clothing, and tools clear of moving parts. Disconnect air lines to pneumatic valves and install a stop when moving fingers, hands, or tools through these assemblies. Do not touch heated pump surfaces.

WARNING

Incompatible Chemical Mixture Fire Hazard

Mixing waste from cleaning processes (wipes, abrasive pads, and toxic residue) contaminated with flammable solvents, oxidizers, and phosphoric residue is a fire hazard. The possibility of spontaneous combustion, ignition, or spontaneous high temperature oxidation exists. Segregate materials contaminated with flammable solvents from materials contaminated with oxidizers. Segregate materials contaminated with phosphoric residue from materials contaminated with flammable solvents or oxidizers. Air-dry and dispose of these materials in separate self-extinguishing containers.

WARNING

Chemical Acid Cleaner Reaction Hazard

Chemical acid cleaners are very corrosive. Chemical acid cleaners react with source and beamline residues and can produce dangerous secondary effects.

Revision A

Introduction

Prior to the installation of this upgrade, review the recommended list of PMs from the system's Equipment Reference Manual and confirm that all PMs have been performed in accordance with VSEA recommendations. Particular attention should be given to those PMs affecting: Vacuum integrity High-voltage stability Magnet calibrations Uniformity/repeatability Source lifetime

The impact of PMs not performed in accordance with VSEA recommendations must be evaluated prior to commencing with this upgrade. Note that additional testing and components, beyond the normal scope of this upgrade, may be required to assure successful completion of the upgrade and expected performance.

Pre-Upgrade Requirements

LX Productivity Upgrade Pre-qualification Test You must pre-qualify your machine before installing the LX Productivity software and hardware. A prequalification test worksheet is provided in Appendix B. The pre-qualification needs to be performed to detail and evaluate a candidate machine for the LX Productivity upgrade. Varian technical staff can then assess whether any adjustments are needed before the installation begins. Acceptance Tests Acceptance tests must be run before and after installation. Before starting the install you must collect pretest data from your machine for later verification to evaluate the success of the upgrade. These files may be sent to VSEA for analysis. See "Appendix C, LX Productivity Upgrade Acceptance Tests" for a description of the acceptance tests you must run.

Theory of Operation

Section 3, Theory

The LX Productivity Upgrade includes these enhancements: · Fine resolution control of the Q1 and Q2 Magnet Power Supplies. · New gas box valve actuators with a switch that signals when the valve is closed for faster throughput. Gas box hardware change allows faster gas flow processing and species changeover. · Semiautomatic KLENS upgrade · New Software Release V13.50 which adds many new features.

Fine Resolution Control of Q1 and Q2 Magnet Power Supplies

New PCB Controller boards installed at the back of the Q1 and Q2 magnet power supplies allow fine control of the magnet supply for tuning of low energy beams. The fine tuning for Q1 & Q2 is now similar in function to the AMU fine controls. The new control PCBs provide new programming voltage so each DAC step for 0 ­ 23 amp outputs (Fine) results in a 6mA change in supply output. For the range of 20 amps to 50 amps the programming voltage of each DAC step results in an output change of 12mA. Before this new feature, noise in the programming voltage for low energy beams would cause a significant defocusing of the beam resulting in the recipe falling outside limits. With each DAC step only resulting in 6mA of output change, the effect of noise has been eliminated

Gas Box Actuator Valves with Switch

The new gas bottle valve actuators and manifold valve actuator have a switch that signals the software when the valve is closed. This bottle valve feedback feature added to the gas box reduces a gas change to less than 20 seconds. Previously, without positive confirmation that the valves were closed, the manifold had to be pumped down below 1.00 Torr before opening the next valve. This could take a very long time, especially with B11.

New GASES Manifold valve screen with new icons for gas bottle valves and manifold valve (5 new icons)

New algorithms for beam tuning

Software version 13.50 is the major part of the upgrade with new features that allow faster throughput and automatic tuning algorithms that will greatly decrease the need for operator intervention. New iterative been tuning techniques allow the machine to complete automatic setup where before the recipe would fail. Auto recovery techniques when parameters are out of limits now allow the machine to continue where before it would stop for operator assistance. These features increase recipe reliability and throughput. See the Software Release Notes for V13.50 for more detailed information on the new algorithms, ECO's, and Options. The release notes contain the instructions for installing the software. Section 5, Software Interface, also contains information on the new ECO's, Options, and screen changes.

Below is a list of suggested settings to take maximum advantage of the new LX Productivity improvements in V13.50. Please note that it is not a yes/no listing of all ECO's and Options. Also note that the field "Maximum number of Setup Attempts" must be set to define the number of iterations the software will go through in its setup routines before an error is finally generated and the automatic setup is aborted. The default value is 5. See "Beam Tuning Configuration Screen" on page 5-10. Turn on? NO Description ECO 26: When the ECO is enabled, automatic setup will be required to achieve the target scan count in the recipe +/-10%, with a minimum window of +/- 2 scans, whichever is more generous. For lower scan numbers. the +/- 2 scans window is more generous than the 10% calculation, so an 8 scan target must achieve 6-10 scans. When the scans target is 30 scans or more, the 10% window is the more generous, so a target of 30 scans will pass with 27-33 scans. Setup will attempt to adjust beam current if necessary to achieve the target window, both in Analytic Setup mode, and in Parametric Setup mode. If the scans window cannot be achieved, a fatal error will occur at the end of setup. When enabled, the LX behavior of automatic adjustment to achieve target scans within the user configured scans target percentage, is disabled. When the ECO is disabled, the user configured Target Scans Tuning% setting in the Tuning Config section of the Interlocks Edit screen is applied during setup, and setup will make adjustments to achieve the target within that percentage until all retries are exhausted. The percentage is rounded to the nearest whole scan, so with a 10% Target Scans Tuning % setting, and a target of 8 scans, setup will work to achieve a calculated scans result in the range of 7-9. If the target scans is 4 or less, setup will try to match it exactly. If setup is unable to achieve the scans target within the configured percentage by the end of setup, no error will occur, unless recipe limits or other mandatory requirements are not achieved. In both configurations the recipe upper and lower limits can be used for implant scan interlocking and instead of setup scan interlocking.

Description ECO 73: Enhanced Monitoring--V13.50 uses the recipe limits throughout setup and implant. This ECO must be selected to take full advantage of the LX tuning improvements. ECO 87: No Accel Volts in Drift Mode ECO 108: Parametric Full/X and Y Learn (was Auto Learn)--This functionality: "Learn a recipe if not already learned/update X and Y if already learned" is superseded by the new ECO 148.

NO

ECO 114: Same PPID Goes to Beamscan--This ECO forces the setup to beamscam if the recipe name hasn't changed. This functionality is replaced by the new setup path determination that is part of LX Productivity beam tuning.

YES

ECO 122: Ignore MIN Scans for Top-Off­Top-off recipes are not going to have the same number of scans as the production recipe had. This ECO removes the check for minimum number of scans.

YES

ECO 148: High Precision Learn ­ At the end of every successful beam setup, recipe values are relearned to new high precision floating point values in the recipe. These values will be restored and used as the starting point for the next setup of that recipe.

YES

ECO 150: Historical Beamscan Setup ­ At the end of every successful beam setup, the beamscan data (the "scan Map" and many other variables) is saved in a separate file on the hard disk. When the recipe is used again, this data is used as a starting point for beamscan corrections. This normally eliminates the need for a complete scanner setup, saving setup time. If disabled, a complete setup of the scanner will be forced after every recipe change, as has been the behavior before this capability was introduced. A maximum of 200 recipes can be saved. After that, the oldest recipe is overwritten.

YES

ECO 151: Recipe Interlock Auto-Correct ­ Allows for automatic correction of recipe interlock violations during implant. If the ECO is enabled, a critical or warning level recipe interlock violation that occurs during implant will trigger an automatic setup correction and implant resumption without user intervention. If the ECO is disabled, recipe interlock violations will be reported and the implant placed on hold as appropriate.

NO

ECO 152: Use Recipe Lens I for Setup--Normally, lens current is calculated from analyzer current using the appropriate KLENS value. This ECO forces beam setup to use the learned lens value from the recipe. Although this ECO does work, its use is not recommended because the system would no longer track any changes to the KLENS values.

NO

ECO 153: No Learn of Critical Items­Created in response to a customer request. If a recipe field has an interlock of `Critical', the field will not be learned.Generally, the items marked `critical' in the recipe are the items that should be updated.

YES

ECO 154: Tune Within Recipe Limits­ Forces beam tuning to stay within recipe limits throughout the setup. If enabled, parametric setup will respect all interlocked recipe limits during tuning and verify that they are achieved, if possible, when setup is complete. If not enabled, interlocked recipe limits will be ignored during beam setup, and tuning optimization may leave parameters at levels that will trigger a pre-implant interlock.

Turn on? YES

Description ECO 155: Permit Beam Setup While Loading ­ If enabled, beam setup is allowed to start as soon as GO is pressed or a remote start is received from the host computer. Setup will begin even if loading and mapping are in progress. If not enabled, setup start will be inhibited until mapping has completed.

YES

ECO 159: Learn Drift with Accel Off ­ Prior to V13.50, all drift recipes were learned with Accel on but programmed to zero. This forced the Accel Suppression to also be on (for safety reasons) and the suppression voltage can have adverse affects, especially at very low energies. This ECO allows drift recipes to be learned with Accel and its suppression supply off. When selected, ACCEL and ACCEL-SUPPRESSION can be learned with a value of zero. This allows for a setup that has both supplies turned off. This is needed for low energy drift<20K extraction. When ECO 159 is selected, the field Low Energy ECO 159 Threshold in kV must be set in the Beam Tuning Configuration screen to define the Threshold at which the software will apply ECO 159 behavior.

User's discretion

ECO 161: Use 3 Cup Focus Faraday--For tools with the BIA upgrade, this ECO controls use of the side cups during the BEA check. If this ECO is selected, the BEA check will do extra sampling and include data on the side cups in the Beamscan Supplemental log entry. No interlocking is done on the side cup data. (See also Option 145 in "Options" on page 5-4.

Options These options should be on. YES Option 145: 3 Cup Focus Faraday--If the 3-cup Faraday is installed, this option must be selected. Previously the option could b deselected if the side cup functions were not desired. Use of the side cups is now controlled by ECO 161 (See "ECO 161" under "Machine configuration--ECO's and Options" on page 5-1). Applies to tools with BIA upgrade only. YES* Option 147: HP-Gasbox Valve Sensors ­ Selects the new valve position sensors installed as part of the LX Productivity Upgrade. Avoids the need to have a time-consuming vacuum pumpdown verify valve closure. YES* Option 148: Hi/Low Q1/Q2 Control ­ When selected, it enables control of Q1 and Q2 power supplies that can either have coarse resolution control (with range of 25 to 50 amps) or fine resolution control (with range of 0 to 25 amps). At lower magnet currents, a finer resolution is automatically used. See "Section 3--Installation for information on installing the new PCB controller boards that allow fine resolution control. *Options 147 and 148 must be on or you will not have access to the new features on the GASES screen and BEAMLINE screen. You will not be able to gain the performance enhancements and run in the new modes available after installing the new gasbox actuators and Q1/Q2 PCB controller boards.

Best Known Methods (BKM's)

Here are some tips and techniques for dealing with machine issues and increasing performance.

`Peak not found' error during X axis tune:

v13.50 software requires a 3% drop on either side of the highest value to qualify that value as the peak. If this error is persistent, try the following: · Reverse magnet polarity · Reduce Z gap (sharpens peak) · Source PM · Replace Extraction Electrode

Hump on right side of scanner waveform just gets bigger:

Sometimes the Beamscan setup won't pass because the display shows a hump on the right side of the plot that just gets bigger as more corrections are made. If this is a drift recipe, try learning with Accel OFF (instead of programmed to zero). If this is a multiple-charged recipe, try reducing gas. Retune Q2 for best return current.

Fast Scan errors:

Sometimes the Beamscan setup won't pass because the Fast Scan uniformity is out of spec. Try tuning Q2 for best accel/decel return current. A problem with the TREK amplifier may be a cause for fast-scan errors. For low-dose Phos and AS recipes, use the mirrror supply to fix, but there is a cost in a reduced final beam-I.

Gas Tune performed too often:

v13.50 software will perform a gas tune if the setup cup response to an arc current change is not adequate. If this is being done too often, the gas tune can be defeated: Change the recipe limits for Gas Flow so that there is less than 0.5T between them (the easiest method is to set the lower at 0.2T below target and the upper at 0.2T above). Set the interlock level to either Warning or Critical. This method can also be used when maintaining proper gas flow is critical, as with multiple-charged and low energy recipes.

Setup issue with As75+ Low Energy:

Sometimes the setup won't pass for As75+ at low energy. The use of the mirror can greatly improve beam shape, resulting in a narrower and sharper integrated plot. Unfortunately, beam current might drop by a large amount (>40%). Also, note that the mirror should not exceed 70% of the EXTR.

Arc current recipe limits:

It is highly recommended that all recipes have an upper limit on arc current. A limit that is 110-125% of the target value is usually sufficient. The interlock level must be set to Warning or Critical.

Issues with installs:

Target too close to upper limit causes overlap with tuning margin: Error "Z axis has exceeded recipe limits..." (for instance). Recipe (low/target/high): 0/995/999 Tuning Margin: 1.2% (default) The Tuning Margin narrows the upper limit to 987. The target value (995) now causes an error. If the recipe target cannot be changed, the Tuning Margin (on the Tuning Config screen) must be set to zero (or at least something less than 0.8%). Tight limits on recipe parameters cause overlap with tuning margin: Error "Target bias has exceeded recipe limits..." (for instance).

Recipe (low/target/high): 119/120/121 Tuning Margin: 0.6% The Tuning Margin narrows the limits to 119.74 & 120.27. The readback was 120.33 and caused error. If the recipe limits cannot be changed, the Tuning Margin (on the Tuning Config screen) might need to be set to zero (or at least something less than 0.6%).

Gas box Baratron gauge flickering +/- 0.03T causes long wait for gas to stabilize: Symptom: The software waits a long time for gas to stabilize as shown on the tuning announcement message, or "the Gas readback stability is above x% after x seconds" error is generated specially for low gas settings. Check the gas screen. If baratron reading flickers by +/- 0.03Torr this could cause the symptom above. Increase GAS-SETTLE-TOL in system.ini. It should not be changed to more than 3 (in percent).
