Process Step for Plasma-Therm Metal Etch System (pt-mtl)

Process steps are added together to create process sequences for Versaline tools. This process step is the default step specific to the PT-MTL (Metal Etch) tool. It lists all the parameters and their limits to be used in recipe writing.

 

Default Process Step for Plasma-Therm Metal Etch System

 Please note: the minimum ICP Forward pressure noted here is different from what is in the software for the tool.  This is at the suggestion Process Engineering at PlasmaTherm.  Using lower than the suggested minimum setpoint will cause dangerously high spiking reflected power.
