Reliable, Stable Programmable Power Drives Advanced Semiconductor Equipment

White Paper Overview

Semiconductor availability is running at a frightening shortage, but demand for the equipment to support production is at an all-time high with many manufacturers planning to expand their capacity. Programmable power supplies will serve a key role in the new semiconductor manufacturing equipment coming online in the months ahead, spanning frontend ion implantation machines to backend burn-in and test systems.

This white paper provides information on how Ion implantation can be used for semiconductor doping. This is where ions of the desired doping element (such as boron for p-type semiconductors or phosphorus for n-type semiconductors) are accelerated into the material to be implanted (silicon, for example). Ion implantation equipment can make use of programmable power supplies inside of a closed-loop system, in which the system adjusts a power supply’s output voltage in response to certain ion-implantation process measurements.

This resource also describes the purpose of water-cooled programmable power supplies that are unaffected by airborne contaminants and how they offer the added benefit of higher power density compared with air-cooled units.


AMETEK Programmable Power is very pleased to announce the launch of two new websites!
The vision was to enhance the overall experience, create a fresh and modern look, and streamline the process of locating and learning more about AMETEK Programmable Power products. A key to achieving this result was the introduction of a new advanced search feature, the Product Selector. On the Product Selector, visitors can filter through products from a comprehensive menu of categories to identify the product that best fits their desired application. Once the filter criteria has been set, visitors will have the ability to learn more about each product or reach out to an AMETEK Programmable Power representative directly from the tool. In addition to the Product Selector, there are many more exciting updates and important content which will be shared in the near future. Be sure to visit both and to learn more.
