The PICOSUN™ Morpher is designed for fully automated handling of wafer batches in combination of industry standard single wafer vacuum cluster platforms. Revolutionary, patented wafer batch flipping mechanism enables integration of the system with semiconductor manufacturing lines where most of the processing takes place in horizontal geometry, and the SEMI S2/S8 certification ensures that the system is compatible with the strictest standards of the industry.

The PICOSUN™ Morpher ALD system can be integrated to factory automation via SECS/GEM protocol and the state-of-the-art software offers easy, safe and fail-proof operation of the system through intuitive and streamlined graphical user interface. With our patented dual-chamber, hot-wall reactor design with fully separated precursor conduits and inlets, we create the highest quality ALD films with excellent yield, low particle levels, and superior electrical and optical performance. The compact, ergonomic design with easy and fast maintenance ensures minimum system downtime and lowest cost-of-ownership in the market.
