Microelectronics is a subfield of electronics. As the name suggests, microelectronics relates to the study and manufacture (or microfabrication) of very small electronic designs and components. Usually, but not always, this means micrometer-scale or smaller. These devices are made from semiconductor materials. Many components of normal electronic design are available in a microelectronic equivalent. These include transistors, capacitors, inductors, resistors, diodes and (naturally) insulators and conductors can all be found in microelectronic devices. Unique wiring techniques such as wire bonding are also often used in microelectronics because of the unusually small size of the components, leads and pads. This technique requires specialized equipment and is expensive.
Digital integrated circuits (ICs) consist mostly of transistors. Analog circuits commonly contain resistors and capacitors as well. Inductors are used in some high-frequency analog circuits, but tend to occupy a large chip area if used at low frequencies; gyrators can replace them in many applications.
Microelectronics cleaning refers to the removal of contaminants and impurities that are involved in the manufacturing of the semiconductors and other microelectronic devices. The basic purpose of the microelectronics cleaning equipment is to make those semiconductor devices work efficiently, thereby maintaining equilibrium in terms of performance and the cost involved. As the size and structure of the minutest of the equipment is decreasing, there is an increased risk of the contaminants and other defects having an adverse effect on the overall efficiency and reliability. The microelectronics cleaning equipment market is emerging as the prime technology, due to the increase in demand for clean microelectronic devices ingrained into the tablet PC market.
Trends such as the miniaturization of structures as well as increased levels of reliability in technology, research and science require controlled, "clean" manufacturing environments. The task of such environments is to minimize influences which could damage the products concerned. The cleanroom environments created by filtering the air were originally developed for the fields of microelectronics and microsystem technology but are now used in a wide range of other high technology sectors such as photovoltaics and the automotive industry.
The report estimates the microelectronics cleaning equipment market, forecasts the size of the microelectronics cleaning equipment market by technology, by equipment, by geography, and by applications such as ICs, photomasks, PCBs, MEMS, FPDs, HDDs, and others from 2012 to 2017. The report talks about the most recent happenings in the market under winning imperatives and burning issues.
