We want to hear from you

We are designing a new table-top, laboratory instrument and development tool for advanced research in microwave synthesis, chemical reactions and microwave materials interaction. Our goal is to deliver a tool that has a broad range of analytical and process capabilities, at a reasonable cost.

Lambda Technologies is a market-leading microwave supplier with the capability to deliver sophisticated production-level microwave equipment and provide a full array of process development support. Since 1994, Lambda has produced Variable Frequency Microwave (VFM) equipment for successful high-volume production applications, including tools used worldwide in the semiconductor packaging industry for curing adhesives and polymeric films.
Continuously swept microwave energy eliminates hot spots and prevents the conditions that lead to arcing. These advantages make our system ideal for advanced materials, high density circuitry, and sensitive electronics.

We want your input to guide the selection of features and capabilities for this new product. We are currently scheduled to launch the newest member of our microwave product line by the end of 2013. Please return your survey by mail, or fax to (919) 462-1929. You may also call Bob Schauer at (919) 462-1919 for more information.

Select a frequency anywhere in the band and launch that single frequency into the chamber
Select a frequency range around any center frequency and continuously sweep
Select the sweep rate for the frequency band
Select a frequency sweep pattern, either sawtooth or pyramid
Develop a profile to skip selected frequencies throughout a sweep
Automatic recipes that include control based on:
Temperature monitoring:
Fiber optic contact probe
Non contact IR
Power control accuracy:
+/- 1%
+/- 5%
+/- 10%
Maximum VFM Power* into cavity:
