Etching Systems


Table-Top Reactive Ion Etching System
Samco's RIE-1C is the ideal solution for laboratories with planar ion-assisted etching requirements and very little bench-top space. This high-performance system is engineered to optimize etching rates, uniformity and selectivity and is especially well suited for removing passivation materials for failure analysis.
The RIE-1C can also be used for etching silicon based films, as well as refractory metals, metal silicides and spin-on-glass. Once a recipe is set up, complete substrate/device processing is started with a push of a button, including system pump down, initiation of gas flow, RF power and chamber venting. In addition, the RIE-1C includes a door interlock and reset switch to ensure operator safety and protect the system. A small-footprint cart designed to hold the RIE-1C, RF power generator and vacuum pump is available as an option.


Main Unit: 400(W) x 440(D) x 325(H) mm

Pump Unit: 430(W) x 620(D) x 800(H) mm
