Comdel's VF series multi channel synthesizer modules provide phase adjustable output to avoid destructive arcing and cross-talk in multiple cathode plasma processing chambers. The VF series can accommodate up to 16 channels and may be programmed to any frequency between 2 and 60 MHz. Frequency changes are simultaneous and phase continuous. The phase of each channel can be adjusted to an accuracy greater than 0.1 degree resolution. The VF series allows adjustment for cable length dependencies.
The VF series is designed to meet the performance demand in RF-driven plasma systems for semiconductor processing. Applications include etch, RIE, parallel plate, ICP, RF sputtering, CVD and PVD, as well as induction and dielectric heating processes in industrial systems, and solar photovoltaic applications.
