Certain areas of the manufacturing operations we provide in the MultiSource Manufacturing network have very specific requirements for a controlled, contained environment during the production process. Specifically, our manufacturing of high-quality precision-based semiconductor components demands a clean room meeting exact ISO standards as well as our own self-imposed standards. The MultiSource network utilizes an ISO Class 3 clean room to eliminate the potential for contamination in every stage of the production process for semiconductor components and full assemblies.
With the protection our clean room provides, MultiSource is able to offer PFA fabrication and welding, in-house electric capabilities, and reverse engineering for even the most complex semiconductor projects.
Our Clean Room
All of our locations have access to our Burnsville facility’s clean room. This clean room meets ISO level 3 classification and Class 1 Federal Standard 209E for eliminating biocontamination and other forms of particulate contamination in the production process.
ISO 3/ Class 1 clean rooms limit the presence of contaminating particles down to:
● 1,000 per cubic meter of particles sized at 0.1 micrometers
● 237 per cubic meter of particles sized at 0.2 micrometers
● 102 per cubic meter of particles sized at 0.3 micrometers
● 35 per cubic meter of particles sized at 0.5 micrometers
● 8 per cubic meter of particles sized at 1.0 micrometers
● 0 per cubic meter of particles sized at 5.0 micrometer
This filtration of microorganisms and particles is critical for the successful production of semiconductor components and assemblies because of the nature of the materials utilized in their manufacturing. Semiconductor assemblies are derived from glassy, crystalline materials such as silicon that have an electrical conductivity decreasing in resistance as temperature increases. Because of this and other properties of semiconductor materials, they are utilized to build electrical assemblies with unique allowance for amplification and energy conversion. However, the process of building semiconductor designed for integrated circuits used in most electronic assemblies requires a highly clean environment, not only during the semiconductor seed material refinement to produce chips with complete clarity, but also during all following production and assembly of semiconductor and electronic components.
Even the smallest particle present in the manufacturing environment can, at the least, alter the quality of a semiconductor assembly and, at the most, completely damage the function of a component and the system as a whole.
With access to an in-house, high-level clean room, MultiSource engineers and technicians are able to consistently produce high-quality, precision-based semiconductor components and assemblies for OEMS and other customers.
