Team 14 Joe Grady James Crow Hongyu Chen Prakalp Sudhakar Victor Villagomez Client/Faculty Advisor: Dr. Gary Tuttle. Diffusion Furnace Controller Design .
The objective of the senior design project is to design a new set of temperature controllers to use on a set of diffusion furnaces located at the Microelectronics Research Center.
The project goals include:
Temperature calibration of the furnaces
Implementing of new temperature controllers into the current furnace system
Providing a computer interface so that temperature of the furnaces can be controlled and monitored remotely.
Controller must have a temperature tolerance within +/- 1 degree Celsius
Software must be able to monitor and control the parameters of the temperature controller
The new controllers need to be placed where the old ones were so they need to able to fit within a certain space
Metrics & Hypothesis
SCR data sheets are unavailable and we are required to create test to determine the characteristics of the SCR.
Isolate a single SCR for characteristic testing to get its turn-on gate voltage
Thermocouple, AC line power, RS 232 have been all successfully interfaced and verified compatible.
