Featured Products

  • SoC Test System


    Innovation never stops. And, with SoC devices demonstrating increasingly shorter life spans, chipmakers now have a cost effective alternative to purchasing new ATE platforms every 2-3 years, or with each new generation of device.
    The T2000 enables you quick access to high-volume markets with minimum investment.
    T2000 – “Innovative Solutions for Changing Needs”

  • cq5dam.thumbnail.250.250 (1)Designed to provide you with precisely controlled reactive extrusion of high viscous melts using only a sample amount of 5 grams or 7 cm3, the Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MiniLab II Micro Compounder is ideal for compounding expensive or small scale materials such as nano-composites, bio-polymers or pharmaceuticals. The HAAKE MiniLab II Micro Compounder also allows you to simultaneously record the rheological properties to document structural changes.

  • This resolution is 100x better than previously reported and is made possible by our thermal probe technology which enables you to:
    • Image the sample of interest with sub-30nm spatial resolution (in contact or intermittent contact modes) and identify the regions whose thermal properties that you’d like to study.
    • Heat a local area of less than 100nm diameter with the probe to temperatures of over 400˚C to study thermal properties such as glass transition or melting point.
    • Local heating allows very fast heating rates up to 600,000˚ C/min and eliminates thermal drift issues that plague bulk sample heating approaches.
    • Image with a heated tip to induce local thermal events over specific regions of a surface.
    • Map the temperatures across the sample with a resolution of <0.1 ºC
