IRLabs Designs Time-saving Automated Wafer Prober

An IRLabs client using our IREM-IV photon emission microscope at several of their chip fabs contacted us about automating probing and data acquisition for fault analysis of a wafer. After meeting with our client and understanding their requirements, we were able to complement our expertise in IR emission microscopy and fault analysis applications with lab automation and machine vision to design an automated wafer prober that can test and report in hours instead of days.
