Octiv VI Probe – RF Power and Impedance Measurements



The global semiconductor market is projected to grow from $573.44 billion in 2022 to $ 1,380.79 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 12.2% in forecast period, 2022-2029.  Growing demand for the semiconductor chips used for various electronic products is expected to enhance semiconductor manufacturing industry output during the forecast period.

Impedans believes that our sensor technology can enable the technologies fuelling this growth, by giving visibility to the performance of the RF network and of the plasma.

Below notes highlight research using the Octiv VI and RFEA probes for characterization and optimization of next generation plasma processes used for chip manufacturing.


RF Subsystems

There are three key performance indicators for the matching network; the match impedance range, the match quality and the match efficiency including the internal resistance. The Octiv VI probe is the ideal product for characterizing the matching network in terms of these three parameters. These in-line sensors are used to study the electrical characteristics of the resulting plasma.

This resource here showcases time-resolved measurements of voltage, current, phase and impedance along with the benefits of different RF frequencies.
