BOC Edwards is reporting significant progress in qualifying its PureFilm trimethylsilane in volume production.

The company's electronic materials group says it has qualified its 99.999% trimethylsilane on both 200mm and 300mm platforms as the primary low k dielectric at semiconductor fabs in America. Additional product qualifications are still in progress.

Trimethylsilane is used in chemical vapour deposition processes for the development of low k dielectric thin film.
