The PlasmaPro 800 with a 460mm diameter table offers full 300mm or large batch 43 x 50mm (2”) capacity, enabling full production solutions and establishing the PlasmaPro 800 as a well proven market leading product.

Allowing maximum process flexibility for compound semiconductor, optoelectronics, and photonics applications, the PlasmaPro 800 provides:

Large electrode - Low Cost of Ownership

Etch end point detection - Reliability and serviceability

Endpoint detection by laser interferometry and/or optical emission spectroscopy - Can be fitted to enhance etch control

Options of a 4-, 8- or 12-line gas pod - Provides flexibility in processes and process gases, and may be remotely sited in the service area, away from the main process tool

Close-coupled turbo pump - High pumping speed and excellent base pressure

Datalogging - Traceability and history of chamber and process conditions

Fluid-cooled and/or electrically-heated electrodes - Excellent electrode temperature control and stability
