Title
(EN) SPLIT CHAMBER ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE CHAMBRE PARTAGÉE
Abstract
(EN)
A process module including a chamber body having a lower chamber and an upper chamber is provided. The lower chamber is configured to mate with the upper chamber along a diagonal interface. An electrode assembly having a substrate support is provided. The electrode assembly is coupled to the upper chamber. A hinge connect couples a first side of the lower chamber to a first side of the upper chamber. The upper chamber is configured to split and open along the diagonal interface and rotate about the hinge connect. The electrode assembly is configured to rotate with the upper chamber in a direction that is away from the lower chamber.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un module de traitement comprenant un corps de chambre ayant une chambre inférieure et une chambre supérieure. La chambre inférieure est conçue pour s'accoupler avec la chambre supérieure le long d'une interface diagonale. L'invention concerne également un ensemble électrode ayant un support de substrat. L'ensemble électrode est couplé à la chambre supérieure. Une connexion articulée couple un premier côté de la chambre inférieure à un premier côté de la chambre supérieure. La chambre supérieure est conçue pour se diviser et s'ouvrir le long de l'interface diagonale et tourner autour de la connexion articulée. L'ensemble électrode est conçu pour tourner avec la chambre supérieure dans une direction qui est éloignée de la chambre inférieure.
