Ionautics has developed a new ultra-fast HiPIMS power supply to meet the needs of future HiPIMS processes. It is a 1 kW HiPIMS unit for R&D departments and academia and suitable for magnetron sizes up to 50 cm2 or approximately 3 inch circular targets.
Tested for a full range of magnetrons and processes
(incl. reactive HiPIMS) at the Royal Institute of
Technology (KTH), Stockholm.
Stable and robust discharge process (constant voltage
and no unwanted oscillations)
Externally triggered and can also be controlled in
master-slave configuration (multiple power supplies).
The HiPSTER series offer an easy upgrade of an existing magnetron deposition system to true
HiPIMS. If you already have a DC power supply capable of delivering ~1000 V and ~1 kW then all
you need is the HiPSTER 1 unit.
If you also need a DC driving unit then please have a look at the HiPSTER DCPSU:s and contact us
for a package deal.
