Plasma-Therm offers a range of technologies for etching and deposition of a variety
- DSE — Deep
Silicon Etch™ is a specialized form of ICP that combines etching and deposition in
a time division multiplexed mode allowing for the production of deep straight-wall
features in silicon and SOI substrates.
- ICP — Inductively
Coupled Plasma uses an RF powered coil in conjunction with an RF biased substrate
- Photomask — Photomask etching
systems are a specialized form of ICP processing that requires advanced control
of parameters such as critical dimensions (CD).
- RIE — Reactive
Ion Etching uses a parallel plate configuration with an RF biased substrate electrode.
- IBE — Ion beam etching uses a beam of accelerated ions for precise patterning and surface modification of any material, including metals. It is essentially a physical process, also referred to as "ion milling."
- PECVD — Plasma
Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition runs in parallel plate mode with RF power applied
to the upper electrode.
- HDPCVD — High
Density Plasma Chemical Vapor Deposition combines the advantages of a high density
plasma ICP source with PECVD, allowing for deposition at significantly lower temperatures and producing better, higher-density films.
- IBD — Ion beam deposition uses an ion beam to sputter material from a target for deposition on a substrate. IBD can form very thin films with superior uniformity.
- Singulator® —
Singulator systems use ICP-based etch configurations to enable full-wafer
dicing of silicon, germanium and GaAs substrates on industry-standard tape frames.
- HDRF™ — High Density Radical Flux is a highly efficient, downstream plasma technology for low-temperature stripping, residue removal, scallop smoothing, and surface activation before bonding.
- NEO — Plasma technology for high temperature stripping at high etch rate.
- XERIC™ Dry Release Etching — memsstar's XERIC dry release etch process module is available using vapor Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) and Exnon DiFluoride (XeF2).
- AURIX™ Surface Modification — AURIX dry, vapor-phase SAM coatings offer major advantages over traditional wet chemical coatings. In particular, the vacuum deposition environment eliminates issues of moisture variation, crucial in creating repeatable and robust surface coatings.
