Rohde & Schwarz announced their new R&S ESR EMI test receiver. The instrument measures conducted and radiated disturbances with a frequency range of 10 Hz to 7 GHz. It is compliant with the CISPR 16-1-1 standard. The R&S ESR test receiver can take EMI measurements up to 6000 times faster than other solutions. The R&S [...]
Pentek introduced the RTR 2746 real-time data recording and playback instrument. The RTR 2746 can digitize analog inputs at up to 200 MS/sec per channel and stream data to mass storage at an aggregate rate of 1600 MB per second. The Pentek RTR 2746 meets MIL-STD-810F requirements for operation in harsh environments and is ideal [...]
Bruker introduced the Dimension Edge PSS Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The Dimension Edge PSS AFM performs automated measurement, data collection, data analysis and report generation on 2- to 6-inch wafers for production metrology applications. It is designed for patterned sapphire substrate (PSS) metrology in high brightness light-emitting diode (HB-LED) manufacturing. The Dimension Edge PSS AFM [...]
The Ohmpoint Measurement System, from Rhomap, is a magneto-transport measurement tool that offers a range of software selectable sample connection probe geometries in one system. The instrument enables engineers to measure resistance in two or four point geometry, sheet resistance and magneto-transport behaviourm (including Hall effect and magnetoresistance). Rhomap is a spin-out from the Durham [...]
SEMI reported that worldwide sales of semiconductor manufacturing equipment totaled $40.47 billion in 2006, representing a year-over-year increase of 23%. SEMI is the global industry association of companies that supply manufacturing technology and materials to the world’s chip makers. Their data is available in the Worldwide Semiconductor Equipment Market Statistics (SEMS) Report. Compiled from data [...]
As many as two chip equipment vendors in five could fall victim to industry consolidation over the next decade. The current shakeout appears to be centered around the inspection and metrology market, where a number of major mergers and acquisitions have taken place in recent times. The segment remains one of the few, high-growth markets [...]
