First of all, it has to be checked wehether the developer has to be metal ion free (MIF), or alternatively metal ion containing (MIC).

AZ® Developer MIC
AZ® Developer is optimized for minimum Al attack. It is an odourless,aqueous, inorganic, alkaline solution, which is compatible with batch andin-line developing processes. It is typically applied 1:1 diluted in DI-H2Ofor high contrast, or undiluted for a high development rate. The darkerosion of AZ® Developer is slightly higher as compared to other developers. AZ® Developer can be used in combination with most families of AZPhotoresists (i.e. AZ® 1500, AZ® 6600 and AZ® 4500). AZ® Developer displays the lowest aluminium etch rate of all AZ® Deveoper-types and is ideal for metal levels.
AZ® 351B Developer MIC
AZ® 351B MIC is based on buffered NaOH and typically used in a 1:3 to 1:4 dilution (1 part of concentrate and 4 parts of DI-water) and can be used especially for our thinner resist types, such as AZ® 1500 Series resists.
AZ® 400K Developer MIC
AZ® 400K (MIC) is based on buffered KOH and typically used in a 1:3 to 1:4dilution (1 part of concentrate and 4 parts of DI-water) and can be usedespecially for our thicker resist types, such as AZ® 4562, AZ® 9260, and AZ® 40XT.
AZ® 303 Developer MIC
AZ® 303 (MIC) is based on KOH and NaOH and designed for the resist AZ® 111 XFS, it can be used also for AZ® nLof 20XX series resists.
