SAMCO RIE-400iPB Deep Silicon Etching System

SAMCO RIE-400iPB R&D Deep Silicon Etching System BOSCH Process

The SAMCO RIE-400iPB is an inductively coupled plasma RIE system that uses high-density plasma to perform high speed silicon etching required in the fabrication of MEMS and electronic devices. The system, capable of etching up to 4” wafers, was designed to provide all the high-performance features of the larger RIE-800iPB in an easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain, affordable package from John Morris Scientific.SAMCO RIE-400iPB deep etching

The SAMCO RIE-400iPB also offers the ability to perform precise, highly controllable SiO2 etching with minimum changeover time. By allowing users to process both SiO2 and Si the system provides maximum value and return on investment.
