Nordson MARCH Announces New RIE-1701 Anisotropic Reactive Ion Etch Plasma System
Concord, California - Nordson MARCH, the global leader in advanced plasma cleaning and etching systems, announced today the release of the RIE-1701 Anisotropic Reactive Ion Etch Plasma System. The new system will replace Nordson MARCH's existing CS-1701 plasma system, which is currently the world's leading bench-top anisotropic reactive ion etch plasma system.
The RIE-1701 plasma system is a fully self-contained, bench-top anisotropic reactive ion etch (RIE) system, with only the vacuum pump package external to the system. Innovative design features include an automated chamber opening system, and an interlocked chamber enclosure that provides an added level of safety for customers who wish to use corrosive gasses.
The RIE-1701 plasma system is designed for advanced plasma etching and cleaning applications, including silicon oxide, silicon nitride, and polyimide passivation removal; interlayer dielectric removal for failure analysis, etching of silicon, III-V, and II-VI materials for MEMS, LED, and IC device manufacturing; single-wafer cleaning, descum, stripping, and etching; and removal of epoxy and IC mold materials.
"The RIE-1701 plasma system is a thoroughly modern update of the classic bench-type RIE plasma system, leveraging the best-in-class plasma technology available only from Nordson MARCH," said James Getty, Director of Applications and Business Development at Nordson MARCH. "The RIE-1701 plasma system was designed to replace our class-leading CS-1701 system, which is being discontinued upon the release of the RIE-1701 plasma system."
The RIE-1701 plasma system is on sale now, and available for customers world-wide through Nordson MARCH's extensive sales and service network.
