PECVD Dielectric Films for RF & Power Compound Semiconductor Applications

High quality dielectric films are needed for a range of applications in the manufacture of compound semiconductor devices including MIM capacitor, device and final passivation layers, and bow compensation. PECVD SiN is widely used because of its excellent passivation performance, stress tuneability and electrical reliability together with its compatibility with GaAs, GaN and SiC based RF and power devices.

In this webinar, we will discuss PECVD process and hardware optimization for the production of SiN films with the productivity required for high volume manufacturing. We’ll show how processes can be tuned to run at low plasma densities to minimise surface damage to sensitive GaN devices and discuss bow compensation strategies to minimize bow and warp on thinner substrates.
