Vision ICP (Inductively Coupled Plasma)

Advanced Vacuum’s Vision ICP provides advanced etch capability for R&D and prototyping, low volume production for processes benefiting from high density plasma, and a load-lock. Based on tried and trusted designs utilizing Plasma-Therm ICP technology, the Vision ICP delivers the capabilities needed for demanding applications.

Robust construction, ease of use, and reliability coupled with a low maintenance requirements and a small cleanroom footprint, make the Vision ICP a productive addition to any facility involved in semiconductor or materials research.
