FREMONT, CA and SHIN-YOKOHAMA, JAPAN -- (Marketwire) -- 11/11/12 -- DCG Systems, Inc. the leading provider of semiconductor diagnostic, characterization and defect localization solutions, today announced that a major power device manufacturer purchased DCG's ELITE System for inspection of their next generation SiC power devices.
"Sensitivity of the system is much better than we had expected and beyond even some of the claimed specifications provided by DCG," stated the Manager of the customer's device development department. "The new laser marker was delivered on time and its performance has been much better than what had previously been available in the market."
This system is one of the most sophisticated ELITE systems yet delivered to a customer comprising the newly developed laser marker, full IR lens options, double-sided probing and high voltage power analysis capability. "We believe this solution will help customers develop faster leading edge power devices. Employing new semiconductor materials such as SiC and GaN introduce increasing development and reliability challenges. The ELITE system is helping our customers strengthen their competitive edge in this growing market," commented Randy Schussler, VP and GM of the IRIS (InfaRed Imaging Systems) Business Unit at DCG Systems.
The ELITE (Enhanced Lock-In Thermal Emission) utilizes Lock-In Thermography (LIT) to accurately and efficiently locate defects. The ELITE incorporates the highest sensitivity thermal emission camera in the market (capable of detecting down to 20 nW of local power dissipation), High resolution Midwave Infrared (MWIR) imaging with large format InSb cameras, 3D localization for through-package imaging and stacked die analysis, contact-less absolute temperature mapping. Further real-time, pixel-wise IR lock-in thermography requires no post processing or integration time limitations while the custom MWIR lenses and thermal SIL (solid immersion lens) ensure highest resolution and sensitivity. Applications of ELITE beyond power devices range to general non-destructive testing (NDT)
