conformal deposition of 1 Ám SiN over a 1.5 Ám step

Plasmalab 800 Plus
large batch system

PECVD technology

Stress controlled SiN PECVD

OPT application lab:
stress vs kHz/ MHz pulse time for SiN and SiON

Sensitech uses itsPlasmalab 800 Plus DP system for depositing SiN films with low tensile stress and low KOH etch rate. It forms a free standing membrane after a wet etch step in KOH (for etching the bulk Si)
