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.
