Type of product
Deposition Tool

Savannah® has become the preferred system for university researchers worldwide engaged in ALD and looking for an affordable yet robust platform. We have delivered hundreds of these systems in the past decade. Savannah®’s efficient use of precursors and power-saving features substantially reduces the cost of operating a thin film deposition system.

Savannah® is equipped with high-speed pneumatic pulse valves to enable our unique Exposure Mode™ for thin film deposition on Ultra High Aspect Ratio substrates. This proven precision thin film coating methodology can be used to deposit conformal, uniform films on substrates with aspect ratios of greater than > 2000:1. Savannah® is available in three configurations: S100, S200, and S300. Savannah® is capable of holding substrates of different sizes (up to 300mm for the S300). The Savannah® thin film deposition systems are equipped with heated precursors lines and the option to add up to six lines. Savannah® is capable of handling gas, liquid, or solid precursors.
