Ascent AMS II Pulsed and DC Power System


Stable, Repeatable Power | Water Cooling | Embedded IoT intelligence

New materials and cathode designs increasingly challenge process stability and film repeatability. At the same time, larger deposition areas heighten power requirements and potential arc-related damage. Ascent® AMS II provides stable, repeatable power regardless of process setup or conditions. Its Arc Management System™ (AMS) technology and onboard, embedded IoT intelligence maximize productivity and throughput. This low-noise, water-cooled design with expanded operating range also increases reliability, process capability, and installation flexibility.
