CMP Pad Regulator: Introduction
- Chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) is manufacturing process used in semiconductor fabrication in order to polish semiconductor wafer and other substrates. CPM is employed to remove the excess material and make a perfectly flat surface for adding new layers.
- The pads are disk shaped, most commonly made from hard and porous polyurethane foam, and patterned with narrow high-aspect-ratio grooves.
- The pads, with mixture of chemical and abrasive materials, are pressed against the front surface of the wafer layer to make the surface clean and plane in equal amounts. A precise downward force is applied across the backside of the wafer.
Rise in Demand in Semiconductor Industry
- Integration of semiconductor devices is increasing consistently and miniaturization in semiconductor devices has increased significantly. Fabrication of a semiconductor layer is a complex process, and CMP is used to achieve highly smooth and planar material surfaces.
- CMP pads play an important role in achieving the performance goals of modern microprocessor and memory chips
- Increase in usage of IoT, consumer electronics, memory devices, MEMS, sensors, and actuators drives the CMP pad regulator market.
North America to Hold Notable Share of Global Market
- North America is estimated to hold a prominent share of the global market during the forecast period, owing to the presence of major key players in the region
- Along with North America, the market share held by Asia Pacific is also expected increase in equal amounts, owing to the presence of a prominent electronics industry in countries such as China, Korea, and Japan, in the region.
- CMP pad are extensively utilized in fabrication and manufacturing process of MEMS devices that have both electrical and mechanical properties. Consequently, MEMS devices are widely used in various sectors such as automotive, industrial, defense, and aerospace.
