  • Omega® Etch Systems
    SPTS offers advanced etch technologies for a wide range of applications within MEMS, Advanced Packaging, LEDs, high speed RF IC & power semiconductors...

  • Plasma Etch

    ICP Etch
    The Omega® ICP process module uses a patented high density plasma source incorporating a radial coil design. The SPTS ICP process module is highly flexible and etches a wide range of materials including oxides, nitrides, polymers, low aspect ratio Si and metals. The ICP module is the market leader for compound semiconductor applications.

    Dielectric Etch
    SPTS’s Omega® SynapseTM process module is an ICP-based high-density plasma source, designed to etch materials which are difficult to etch using conventional RIE or ICP sources.

    The process chamber is of metallic construction and is heated to reduce the level of deposition on it, thereby increasing process stability and increasing the mean time between cleans by more than a factor of 10.

    Si DRIE
    Install base of over 1000 DRIE process modules, SPTS’s market-leading position is spearheaded by the Rapier module, which etches Si using Bosch switched processing as well as non-switched etching for tapered profiles, wafer thinning and via reveal.
