Industry’s Highest-Power Microwave Generator Targets Semiconductor Plasma Apps

Reno Sub-Systems unveils the latest addition to its Precis™ Solid-State Generator portfolio. Capable of 1.6kW microwave output at 2.45GHz, the new Precis generator offers the highest-power solid-state microwave generator available for semiconductor plasma applications. The company’s approach to power generation fills a growing need for advanced subsystem technologies to keep the industry on pace with Moore’s law.


The Precis microwave generator delivers accurate, repeatable and stable µsec ramp times using a highly reliable solid-state architecture. The  microwave power control offers significantly better frequency control than comparable magnetron-based microwave generators. Eliminating aging magnetron technology also reduces maintenance requirements, and thereby cost of ownership. 


The Precis family of generators is the latest addition to Reno’s highly differentiated Velocity™ Series EVC™ matching networks portfolio. Delivering radically better performance and process capabilities, the Velocity EVC matching network achieves ranges from 500W to 4.5kW with frequencies of 500kHZ to 40MHz.


Precis Microwave Generator Specifications:

  • 1.6kW microwave output at 2.45GHz
  • Operates from 200/208, 3-phase, 50/60Hz VAC
  • Coaxial and waveguide output options
  • Serial and analog communication
  • DeviceNet and EtherCAT communication options available
  • 19" rack mount design for ease of integration
