POCO's consumable materials roadmap for the semiconductor industry is driven by technology and cost. These are the same forces that drive semiconductor technology and equipment roadmap. The right consumable components can keep the equipment up longer and reduce defects, while the wrong material can prevent the process equipment from performing at optimum level.
In less than a decade the leading consumable component materials have changed several times to meet the increasingly stringent requirements associated with next generation equipment. Using the most suitable component materials can affect total cost of ownership (CoO) of the equipment.
POCO continues to develop new materials that will offer signifcantly improved performance.
