Abstract
Low cost microcomputers are an attractive approach for monitoring and control of future semiconductor processing equipment. A wide variety of low-cost off-the-shelfl/O boards are available for use with industry standard PCs. Such an approach is being implemented in a three-module singlewafer cluster-tool approach for forming a gate stack of oxide nitride and polysilicon. This work discusses hardware and software approaches for such a cluster tool and discusses some of the advantages of in-situ real-time process monitoring and control.
