We are a sales representative and marketing firm based in Austin, TX serving a world wide customer base. We seek out principals that avoid surprises while delivering on-time solutions that give customers more than they expect.
In conjunction with Reedholm Systems, technical support augmenting what is available from principals is available for many of the products noted below.
YieldWatchDog is a high performance yield management software solution that enables 24/7 storage, analysis as well as tracking of any anomalies arising during the chip manufacturing process. YieldWatchDog is able to recognize patterns and automatically inform you as soon as any irregularities occur. The intuitive and responsive user interface accelerates the understanding and resolving of problems. This means that your material waste will be reduced, quality issues and customer returns prevented, and engineering resources used far more efficiently. On top of this … your yield will increase too.
Probe System for Life (PS4L)
The Probe System for Life, or PS4L, is SemiProbe’s patented adaptive probe system architecture. Unlike traditional probe systems, all of the basics components of our systems, including the bases, stages, chucks, microscope mounts, and manipulators, are interchangeable, upgrade-able, and configurable. The PS4L Adaptive Architecture ensures and optimal test configuration for each individual customer application.
PS4L systems are available to handle products from 50 mm to 300 mm, and are available in manual, semiautomatic, and fully automatic configurations. A unique advantage of the PS4L system is its ability to be upgraded at any point in its life cycle as your product needs or volume requirements change. As the customer’s business environment or test conditions change, the PS4L can be rapidly reconfigured to meet these new requirements. Changes to wafer size, automation level, or test procedure do not translate into a need for new capital equipment. This substantially reduces the cost of new product development and the time to procure the appropriate test equipment. Reconfigurations are typically performed in the field, at the customer site.

|The German SURAGUS GmbH develops, manufactures and markets measuring and testing solutions based on eddy current testing technology. The wide and high frequency range of EddyCus systems allows the testing of very low to good conductive materials. The EddyCus testing systems are used for the characterization of coatings, fiber reinforced composites and metals, alloys, semiconductors, ceramics or plastics. The Eddy Current systems generate defined electromagnetic fields that interact depending on the amount of material and its properties conductivity (σ), permeability (µr) and permittivity (ε) with the test object. EddyCus testing systems are used for serial testing, process control and quality assurance in large multinational companies, SMEs, testing laboratories and research institutes on five continents. Customers value the multiplicity of applications, the high accuracy, user-friendly software and fast service. |
