BEOL Application

"GPX" has two types: HS-C series for Cu and HS-T series for barrier metals. The polishing performance is controllable for various processes and devices.


  • High removal rate at low down force polishing.
  • Low dishing and erosion.
  • Removal selectivity of Cu, TaN, and oxide is tunable.

CMP Process

Advanced semiconductor devices with high performance are required to have multi-level layers, fine patterns to obtain high speed transmission. CMP process is indespensable to have well-planarized interlayer dielectric or metals in LSI and accomplish the above requirments.
