July 17, 2012 — Sonoscan unveiled its Lab Model 9600 C-SAM acoustic micro imaging system to serve laboratory/failure analysis applications and for use in low-volume semiconductor production inspection.
Model 9600 incorporates advanced Sonolytics software with a graphical user interface (GUI). PolyGate analysis software for multilayer or bulk materials analysis is standard. PolyGate permits the user to set up to 100 individual gates per channel for a sample. During a single scan, PolyGate produces a separate acoustic image for each gate. Depending on the material, each gate may be as thin as 20µm.
The 9600 is tailored for high-performance laboratory acoustic microscopy for budget-conscious users.
The 9600 uses a linear motor for X-axis scanning, a tower-mounted scan reference platform, and is rated for Class 1000 cleanroom operation. It has a portfolio of optional features available.
Sonoscan makes acoustic microscopes and sophisticated acoustic micro imaging systems, widely used for nondestructive analysis of defects in industrial products and semiconductor devices. Internet: www.sonoscan.com.
