The PICOSUN™ P-300 ALD systems are now the new standard in high volume ALD manufacturing. By combining Picosun’s patented hot-wall design with completely separated inlets, they can create the maximum quality ALD films with superior yield, low particle levels, and excellent optical and electrical performance. The agile design with easy and rapid maintenance guarantees minimum system downtime and lowest cost-of-ownership commercially. Picosun’s proprietary Picoflow™ diffusion enhancer technology enables extremely conformal coatings on ultra-high aspect ratio substrates with production-verified processes.

The PICOSUN™ P-300S ALD system signifies the cutting-edge of industrial ALD. The system is engineered for completely automated handling of single wafers along with industry standard vacuum cluster systems. The SEMI S2/S8 certified P-300S ALD systems can be combined with factory automation via SECS/GEM option and they accomplish the most rigorous cleanliness requirements of the semiconductor sector.

The PICOSUN™ P-300S is the preferred ALD system for innovation-driven industries in IC.
