Semiconductor Cleanroom Classifications & Standards

In today’s world, semiconductors are everywhere. In fact, just about every computerized device you come across uses a semiconductor chip to function: your car, your cell phone, and probably even your washing machine.

When maintaining the safety and effectiveness of your semiconductor chip components is a top priority, Starcco has the controlled cleanroom solutions you need. No matter what kind of application you use these computerized devices for, our semiconductor cleanrooms will ensure your components remain in a controlled environment and are not exposed to potential damage.

What Is a Semiconductor Cleanroom?

A semiconductor cleanroom is an enclosed space with controlled environmental conditions that are ideal for the manufacture and handling of various semiconductor chip components. These components include things like silicon wafers, circuit boards, etc.

Why Is a Semiconductor Cleanroom Necessary?

Semiconductors are incredibly fragile. Made from sensitive materials like pure silicon, even the tiniest speck of dust could damage them and the machines they’re used to power.

Since quality and purity are critical in maintaining the safety and effectiveness of semiconductor chip components, a highly controlled cleanroom is needed. With a cleanroom that meets the applicable standards and regulations, your facility can ensure safe and reliable semiconductor manufacturing practices for years.

Semiconductor Cleanroom Standards and Classifications

When choosing the right semiconductor cleanroom, following quality control standards is crucial. These standards vary depending on your facility’s applications and processes. While most semiconductor cleanrooms need to meet ISO 14644-1:2015 Class 4-6 requirements, the necessary class requirements can vary based on factors like your semiconductor manufacturing or handling application.

Beyond complying with the ISO classification requirements that align with your equipment and operations, you must also meet industry-specific semiconductor cleanroom standards. Keep these specifications in mind and consider your industry’s specialized standards, including:

  • ASTM standards for automotive applications
  • NASA standards for aerospace applications
  • USP standards for medical device applications
  • cGMP/GMP standards for medical applications
