Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment

We support semiconductor manufacturing equipment design safety, with SEMI S2 and SEMI S8 evaluation. We provide design guidance for the development of new semiconductor manufacturing equipment. One of our principals Steve Barcik Amstel was one of the authors and the chairman of the committee that wrote SEMI S2. Our expertise is deep and broad, and we can support you in achieving SEMI S2 and CE marking for this semiconductor manufacturing equipment.  High Tech Design Safety provides third party assessment services for global clients in high tech. Our deep focus on technology equipment provides our clients with full understanding of how standards and regulations impact your design and time to market.  We know how to deliver valuable information more rapidly at a lower cost. We provide SEMI S2 Certification, SEMI S6 Tracer Gas Testing, exhaust cabinet validation.

Evaluation Services:

For SEMI S2 – Product Safety for Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment, we provide full equipment certification including guidelines such as SEMI S3 - Safety for Process Liquid / Chemical Heating Systems.


For SEMI S6 - Exhaust Ventilation of Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment, we have full in-house capability for Tracer gas testing either on-site at your facility or on-site at our facility. Additionally we have a new and patent pending process for Tracer gas testing. Additionally, we have generated thousands of tracer gas tests and hundreds of tracer gas reports resulting in reduction of cost of ownership and exhaust flow costs.


Additionally, we perform SEMI S8 - Safety for Ergonomics Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment.


The guideline SEMI S10 – For Risk Assessment and Risk Evaluation Process uses our in-house process and data and forms to generate a full picture of the various risks for your equipment from chemical to fire two other hazards. Additionally, we can perform in semi S-10 risk assessment for the full life cycle of your equipment.


We are experts in the guideline SEMI S14 - Fire Risk Assessment and Mitigation for Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment. Additionally, we can provide hazardous locations class I division one, class I division two, evaluation and design validation for your equipment. Our principal consultants
have each over 33 years in hazardous location engineering, design, testing and certification.


For the electrical guideline SEMI S22 - Electrical Design of Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment, we can utilize our Conformity Discovery Process © and help you design your equipment to meet standards by doing design-based evaluations to the standards on each design step.


SEMI S1 - Equipment Safety Labels and Nameplates, further by using the standards we have templates and boilerplate for you to create your labels, nameplates, manuals guidelines and details to allow you to fully design and implement your equipment to have it be fully conforming to the standards.


We even include detailed standards-based line item requirements for all of your manuals based on the requirements and in guidelines of SEMI S2, SEMI S8 and SEMI S13. SEMI S13 is the Environmental, Health and Safety Guideline for Documents Provided to the Equipment User.

Product Approvals

Here are the different approvals we assist with in semiconductor manufacturing industry.


We help walk our clients through the process to design based on the standards that it will be tested to and need to comply with in order to enter your desired market.


We can offer a basic timeline to get your product through the process and steps that you can take that will help to expedite the process. Each piece of equipment is different and we can quote your specific equipment.


$22-30K for most equipment. There are factors that you can anticipate will add to the cost and can be planned for in your budget.


You can use our team and facilities to test, evaluate and validate your product to using the required standards to get the necessary approvals for your  markets.  Here is a list of testing that may be required for products in semiconductor manufacturing industry.

Product Standards

These are the standards that may apply to your product in the clean energy field. We can help you to determine the best standard to meet your specific needs. And designing to the standard is going to be the best practice.
