Semiconductor Capabilities & Resources
Dakota's strength is in its people. Our team of manufacturing and engineering professionals have the talent and experience to design, manufacture and test the most complex semiconductor process systems. We provide solutions from simple weldments to completed process equipment.
We believe that all subsystems and completed process tools should be fully functional tested prior to shipping from Dakota. To achieve this standard, Dakota has 3 cleanrooms and 4 industrial test stations. Critical Systems are fabricated, assembled, and tested in our Class 100, Class 1000, Class 10,000 clean room facilities, including:
- Semi grade gas- Argon, N2, He, CDA
- 1 Meg cooling water
- 18 M-ohm DI water system
- 3 phase high voltage electrical supply (480V, 300A capability)
- Vacuum and Cryopump Exhaust
- Helium Leak Testing Standard
- High Pressure Testing available
- High Bay and Overhead Crane
Semiconductor Equipment Manufacturing
Over 30 years' experience in gas delivery systems and process equipment goes into Dakota's semiconductor equipment solutions. We design and manufacture upon three pillars: Safety, Scalability, and Synthesis between the laboratory ecosystem and the process equipment.
Dakota was founded to meet the process piping needs of the semiconductor industry specializing in hazardous gas delivery. Not only is quality design and engineering integral to the performance of equipment, but more importantly it is vital to the safety of users. At Dakota we manufacture semiconductor equipment with the utmost pride and responsibility. Every Dakota employee undergoes extensive training including a full seminar on our responsibility to the safety of both for our own employees and our customers’ employees. Dakota semiconductor equipment has withstood decades of competing technologies in large part because of the reliability and safety of our equipment.
Our design-for-manufacture philosophy, strict ERP documentation, and calibrated-to-demand flexibility all allow our customers to navigate the peaks and valleys of the product lifecycle. This is especially relevant to clean energy technology ventures. When we design a prototype, we design it with scale and manufacturing in mind so you are prepared for opportunity when it arrives. Similarly, our diligent documentation allows us to create identical equipment for repeatable results or design next generation equipment that can leverage existing equipment and infrastructure. The aggregate effect of a Dakota partnership is reliable process-critical systems – for everything from fuel cell technology, to hydrogen storage or liquid battery systems – designed to help you succeed.
With a history in both facilities and process equipment, Dakota has a uniquely comprehensive knowledge of the semiconductor equipment domain from the gas source to the process chamber. This knowledge enables us to design an elegant symbiosis between the ecosystem and the equipment. We design with an ergonomic standard so that the gas delivery system supports both current and future process requirements. Such design elements include adaptable unions at standard distances to accommodate future semiconductor equipment and modular design for scale and flexibility. The net result is easier installation with minimal on-site welding, improved performance, and an extended lifecycle.
