    What are Critical Subsystems?

    Having trouble explaining to friends and family exactly what you do for a living? We feel your pain and know just how frustrating this can be. So, to help clear the fog of misunderstanding we put together a fun film to explain what you do. We hope you enjoy it as much as we had fun making it...

    This is a $12Bn industry... yes $12Bn - You can add another $7Bn if you include Critical Components - Yet many outside of the industry (and a few within) don't realise the important role Critical Subsystems & Components suppliers play in developing the latest technology for modern society.

    VLSIresearch defines Critical Subsystems as highly engineered and specialised technologies which actively affect substrate processing during device manufacturing. Critical Subsystems technologies include:

    Fluid e.g. Mass Flow Controllers, Liquid Flow Controllers, Fluid Pumps...

    Vacuum e.g. Valves (Control, Transfer, Isolation), Pumps (Cryo, Dry, Turbo)...

    Integrated Process Diagnostics e.g. Gas Analysers, Liquid Analysis, Particle Measurement, Other Metrology...

    Optical Subsystems e.g. Lithography Optics...

    Power e.g. RF Power Supplies, RF Power Matching Networks, DC Process Power, Plasma Sources...

    Thermal e.g. Chillers, Heat Exchangers, Temperature Measurement...

    Wafer Robotics e.g. Vacuum Robots, Atmospheric Robots, Wet Robotic Subsystems...

    Critical Components e.g. Electrostatic Chucks, Ceramics, Elastomers...
