Software brings 3D mapping to nanoscale objects

Based on Digital Surf’s Mountains Technology, AttoMap software brings 3D imaging of spectroscopic information obtained using Attolight’s CathodoLuminescence (CL) technology. This integrates a scanning electron microscope and a light microscope into high resolution spectroscopy instruments used to characterise semiconductors, solar cells and other nano devices. 3D visualisation makes it easier to locate and characterise features and defects on nanoscale objects.

Processor replication with IP rights eliminates errata

Rochester Electronics offers replication of processors through its Semiconductor Replication Process (SRP). There are several companies within the semiconductor industry selling their emulated versions of popular processors originally produced by Freescale and Intel. Because Rochester receives processor IP from the original manufacturer, there is no need to emulate.
