The Intevac Vertex™ system implements a modular design concept to allow processing of a variety of optical films in a single system. One of the coatings produced by the Vertex is a patented, optically transparent and abrasion-resistant coating for display glass. Capitalizing on its technology leadership in hard disk drive media coating, Intevac optimized the Vertex PVD system for coatings on consumer mobile electronic products such as smartphones, tablets, wearable electronics and automotive infotainment systems.

DiamondClad™ is Intevac’s current generation of optically clear, diamond-like coating.
