The Purion H ushers in a revolutionary new era of high performing implant technology, elevating what customers will come to expect from high current implanters. A few of its many new and innovative features include:

  • Next generation scanned spot beam technology with precision implant angle and dose control to enhance device performance and yield.
  • Enabling process control technology to minimize all forms of contaminants to ensure absolute beam purity.
  • Common Purion cross-platform architecture designed to drive manufacturing flexibility and lower the total cost of fab operations. 

Bill Bintz, executive vice president of product development, engineering and marketing said, "The Purion H is a modern high current implanter that incorporates enhanced spot beam technology, and is designed to  provide customers with an unprecedented level of process flexibility to support the manufacturing challenges of the industry's next generation devices, planar or three dimensional. Due to its unique design, its enabling process control, and Purion platform commonality, we expect the Purion H will become the industry standard in high current, single wafer implant."
