EVG®810 LT

LowTemp™ Plasma Activation System

Low-temperature plasma activation system for SOI, MEMS, compound semiconductors and advanced substrate bonding

The EVG810 LT LowTemp™ plasma activation system is a single-chamber, stand-alone unit with manual operation. The process chamber allows for ex-situ processes (wafers are activated one by one and bonded outside the plasma activation chamber).


  • Surface plasma activation for low-temperature bonding (fusion/molecular and intermediate layer bonding)
  • Fastest kinetics of any wafer bonding mechanism
  • No wet processes required
  • Highest bond strength at low temperature annealing (up to 400 °C)
  • Applicable for SOI, MEMS, compound semiconductors, and advanced substrates bonding
  • High degree of materials compatibility (including CMOS)
