Software & User Interface

XEA - Industrial Automation & Analysis

XEA is a system software for automation that carries out the AFM measurement of a sample following the preset procedure written in a recipe file. User-friendly XEA architecture provides flexibility to operator to perform various system-wide functions.
 
• Supports auto, semi-auto, and manual mode
• Editable measurement method for each automated procedure
• Live monitoring of the measurement process
• Automatic analysis of acquired measurement data

 

XEP – Data Acquisition

All the user controls on AFM measurements are operated through XEP, the data acquisition program. The user-oriented interface provides easy operation of AFM.
 
• Simultaneous data acquisition of up to 16 images
• Maximum 4096 × 4096 image size
• Dedicated Force-distance and I-V spectroscopy with batch processing
• Cantilever spring constant calibration
• Script-level control through external program (LabVIEW, C++)

 

XEI – Image Processing and Analysis

XEI is the AFM image processing and analysis program. The powerful processing algorithms make the analysis easy and streamlined. With its most advanced and versatile imaging features, XE users can obtain essential and critical information from their experiment.
 
• Image analysis of line profile, region, 3D rendering
• Spectroscopy data analysis module (F-d, I-V)
• Directly copy/paste to presentation program
• Multiple image comparison
• Image overlay of two different images

 

Options

Customized Sample Fixture

Park Systems can prepare customized sample fixtures to support customers’ specific samples, row bars or individual sliders. The customized sample fixture guarantees a superior connection between the measuring sample and the XE-PTR.

 

Automatic Tip Exchange (ATX)

Automatic Tip Exchange performs fully automated tip exchanges in order to seamlessly continue automated measurement routines. It automatically calibrates cantilever location and optimizes measurement settings based on measurements of a reference pattern. Our novel magnetic approach to the tip exchange yields a 99% success rate, higher than the traditional vacuum techniques.

 

Non-damaging Customized HGA Fixture

HGA fixture can be custom built to firmly fit a specific HGA design provided by the customer, providing the most stable fixture in the industry. The non-damaging fixture allows users to easily load and unload the entire HGA, without causing any damage to the HGA. HGA then can be dismounted, and further tested. Up to 5 HGA samples of the same type can be mounted at the same time.

 

Ionization System

Ionization system effectively removes electrostatic charges. It ionizes the charged objects and is very reliable since the system always generates and maintains an ideal balance of positive and negative ions without causing any contamination to the surrounding area. It also reduces the accidental electrostatic built-in charge that may occur during sample handling.
