Probe stations

Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.

Lake Shore offers both cryogenic and superconducting magnet-based probe stations. They provide a platform for measurement of magneto-transport, electrical, electro-optical, parametric, high Z, DC, RF, and microwave (up to 67 GHz) properties of materials and test devices. Typical materials measured include nanoscale electronics, quantum wires and dots, semiconductors, superconductors and spintronic devices.

Features include temperatures from 1.5 K to 475 K, vertical or horizontal field superconducting magnets, up to 6 ultra-stable micro-manipulated probe arms, and up to 4-inch wafer probe capabilities. A wide selection of options and accessories make it possible to configure a probe station to meet your specific measurement applications.

Reliability Testing Just Got Easier!

Accel-RF Corporation

AARTS is a turnkey system used to determine life expectancy of RF & microwave devices. The system performs multi-dimensional dynamic testing that automatically performs three-temperature life tests and characterizes devices to specified test-parameters during aging/burn-in. Each part can be independently stimulated for large-signal RF, channel-temperature, and DC electrical parameters using a powerful graphical interface. AARTS is functionally capable of in-situ testing GaN, SiC, GaAs, SiGe, InP, LDMOS, and other RF power-device technologies.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
