TherMoiré AXP

Flatness Measurement and Analysis System

The TherMoiré AXP is a modular metrology solution that utilizes the shadow moiré measurement technique, combined with automated phase-stepping, to characterize out-of-plane displacement for samples up to 400 mm x 400 mm. With time-temperature profiling capability, the TherMoiré AXP captures a complete history of a sample's behavior during a user-defined thermal profile.

The combination of shadow moiré measurement and dynamic temperature profiling is the foundation of the patented TherMoiré platform. Dynamic profiling is the most effective approach to analyze mechanical behavior induced by real-world processes and operating environments. Using the TherMoiré AXP, engineers can gain a better understanding of the interactions between materials, packages, substrates and complete assemblies.

The TherMoiré AXP is an expandable modular metrology platform:

  • Up to 400 mm x 400 mm maximum sample size
  • Acquisition of 1.4 million displacement data points in less than 2 seconds
  • Enhanced temperature uniformity convective heating and cooling
  • High resolution measurement of small form factor samples
  • XYZ axis strain and CTE calculation
  • Increased lab productivity with advanced, powered cooling
  • Support for reliability testing from -50°C to 150°C+ and reflow simulation to 280°C+
  • Multiple part testing for increased throughput
