Free magazine about direct-write lithography and its applications in research and industry.
Our lithography systems involve a lot of high-end electronics.
Our systems handle large amount of digital data and convert it into analog signals for all the various positioning systems, laser sources, modulators or the NanoFrazor cantilevers. Sensor signals from the interferometers and the NanoFrazor AFM signals need to be collected and processed by real-time algorithms to be fed back to the systems.
Heidelberg Instruments employs a dedicated team for in-house development of electronics ranging from various small control and sensor boards to FPGA and low noise analog designs.
