Title
(EN) METHOD FOR CONTROLLING A PROCESSING SYSTEM
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE COMMANDE D'UN SYSTÈME DE TRAITEMENT
Abstract
(EN) Embodiments described herein generally relate to methods for controlling a processing system. Particularly, subfab components of the processing system may be controlled based on the flow of materials into the processing system. In some embodiments, the flow of an inert gas used to dilute the effluent gases may be controlled in accordance with the flow of one or more precursor gases. Thus, the cost of running the processing system is reduced while mitigating critical EHS concerns.
(FR) Les modes de réalisation décrits se rapportent de manière générale à un système de traitement. En particulier, les composants du système de traitement se situant dans la partie inférieure d'une usine de fabrication de semi-conducteurs peuvent être régulés sur la base du flux de matériaux entrant dans le système de traitement. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le flux d'un gaz inerte utilisé pour diluer les gaz effluents peut être régulé en fonction du flux d'un ou de plusieurs gaz précurseurs. On réduit ainsi le coût d'exploitation du système de traitement tout en atténuant les préoccupations d'EHS critiques.
