LiveOPTICAL® and LiveFIB®

LiveOPTICAL® service launched, to compliment our LiveFIB® imaging over a secure video feed.

LiveOPTICAL® video conferencing

LiveOPTICAL® remote project conferencing is the latest innovation from NanoScope. By extending our UNIQUE LiveFIB® capability to include OPTICAL MICROSCOPY and NANOMANIPULATION, NanoScope clients can now supervise all aspects of their projects, from the comfort of their own office.

By bringing together these complimentary microscopy techniques with real time project supervision, you can have the confidence to send your most valuable projects for actioning, while focusing on other important tasks. These powerful visual aids and on-line collaboration also have removed the need for you to travel to supervise these specialist interventions. On-line collaboration also significantly reduces the documentation work required for each job and your travel costs.

Device Modification or Materials Analysis has never been greener or more cost effective.

Several conferencing software options support NanoScopes Live Microscopy options. Just click here to ask.

LiveFIB® – secure video conferencing during FIB interventions on your samples

NanoScopes UNIQUE LiveFIB® capability effectively puts a Focused Ion Beam microscope into the office of every engineer who needs one.

All Ion Beam applications can be done remotely and with real time consultation to accelerate the process and minimise the costs.

World class results without any instrument or expert engineer costs are available on an ‘as needed’ basis and without and training or lengthy preparation.

Log onto LiveFIB® and watch your problems get ionised.

How do I get the most benefit from FIB IC Nano-surgery? (a.k.a. Circuit Edit, a Metal Fix, a FIB, Cut and Paste) Nov 2020

There are many advantages of correcting an IC design with FIB Nano-Surgery, but sometimes there are also problems, and many designers have been put off the technique. Did your last FIB work as you expected? Or was the yield low? or you got results you couldn’t explain? A quick recap of the reasons to do a FIB edit and how you would go about it, might be helpful. SCENE: So you’ve taped out your big new design, and 4 months and ₤400,000 /$/€ later, your 1st Silicon devices have arrived for tests to start. And immediately, there’s a problem. If you are lucky, then a normal functional test has failed and after a few days of head scratching it becomes clear what the cause is, and what the most likely metal fix should be. If you are unlucky and it’s more subtle, but still a show stopper for customer acceptance, then the fix strategy may be less obvious. Either way, prompt action is required and there are some difficult decisions to make. Your colleagues, customers and suppliers are all waiting to help get your product to market. Then there is the expense and the delays: to testing, to qualification, to sales and to revenue – which all add up to a serious commercial inconvenience. What ARE your options here? Risk a design change because there is a high confidence that the fix is understood? Do you roll the dice (the expensive and time consuming ones) and trust that the fix will work? Or spend a week trying to get a few chips fixed using FIB nano-surgery and give yourself some...
