Description of components and capabilities:

1) The InfraScope is a fault isolation tool for semiconductor failure analysis. The InfraScope detects thermal infrared photons emitted from hot areas on semiconductor circuits. Such hot spot sites often mark the location of a process fault or damaged location of a circuit, such as a short circuit. The MWIR cameral operates at 2um - 4um wavelength.

 

2) Emmi detects photons emitted from electron-hole recombination sites on semiconductor circuits. Such recombination sites often mark the location of a process fault or damaged location of a circuit. The NIR cameral operates at 400nm - 1,000nm wavelength.

 

3) Thermal mapping which allows the user to perform temperature mapping of materials and devices. The user easily determines the exact temperature at any point by color or by simply positioning the mouse arrow over the desired point and reading the desired temperature. This technique saves literally hundreds of hours over non-infrared techniques and it doesn't damage or affect the part in any way.

 

The tool is fitted with a 6 inch heated chuck, micrometer probes, dark box, and dual Keithley DC power supplies. 0-200VDC & 0-1000VDC. Users may bring their own power supplies as needed for their specific devices and material testing. The tool has better than 2.7um resolution.
