Silicon Carbide vs. Silicon in EV Power Electronics

Compare silicon carbide vs. silicon for electric vehicle (EV) power electronics and learn about SiC wafer measurement. As demand for electric vehicles (EVs) continues to grow, manufacturers are comparing two semiconductor technologies, silicon carbide and silicon, for power electronics applications. Silicon carbide (SiC) provides the high temperature resistance, low power consumption, rigidity, and [...]

Measure Wafer Bow, Warp and TTV with Capacitance

The flatness of silicon wafers used to manufacture integrated circuits is controlled to tight tolerances to help ensure that the whole wafer is sufficiently flat for lithographic processing. To ensure your wafer manufacturing process is within tolerance, you need to measure the wafers being produced. Various measurement techniques exist to verify process tolerances and [...]

What is a displacement sensor?

What are Displacement Sensors (Displacement Gauges) and Dimension Measurement Systems? What is a displacement sensor? A displacement sensor (displacement gauge) is primarily used to measure the range of where an object has to travel and in relation to a reference position. Displacement sensors have multiple uses. Its primary use is for dimension measurement to [...]


Selecting a Displacement Sensor / Measuring System

Capacitive displacement sensors Capacitive displacement sensors are non-contact devices that are used for measurements at a high-resolution. It can also be used to check the position of any conductive object as well as measure the width or density of non-conductive materials. Capacitive displacement sensors have a large variety of uses including precision thickness measurements, [...]


Target Material and Characteristics

Target Material and Characteristics Transparent/Opaque Targets There are a number of measurement systems that are capable of measuring a target that is opaque. When it comes to transparent targets, the measurement system being used must match the material of the target being measured. For example, if you’re attempting to measure plastic you should use [...]
