Cascade Microtech introduces the eVue digital imaging system, designed primarily for engineers doing process development or device characterization and modeling. Optimized for on-wafer test with Cascade Microtech’s wafer probing stations, eVue allows users to navigate, observe, and measure devices much quicker and more effectively than with a conventional microscope. It combines new wafer probe navigation tools and advanced video processing with digital microscope technology developed by Umech Technologies, a partner of Cascade Microtech. At the core of the system is a multi-CCD microscope with high definition digital video and wide field/high magnification capabilities. Three discrete optical paths, each with individual high-resolution CCD cameras, can be utilized to provide a state-of-the-art "multi-perspective" view of the device under test, improving navigation speed and accuracy.
