Syntronic China expands business in the semiconductor field
Syntronic has signed a cooperation agreement with a well-known semiconductor enterprise in China. The aim is to provide customized UV spectrophotometer development services, which will help customers measure and control the ozone concentration in silicon wafer production accurately.
The UV spectrophotometer designed by Syntronic uses ultraviolet light of a specific wavelength for detection, which enables it to calculate the ozone concentration value. It can display and output the concentration signal to the specified terminal directly. Its built-in control system enables remote operations and instrument parameter modifications.
This is a new breakthrough and practice for Syntronic in the semiconductor field.
The project is led by a team from Syntronic Tianjin Office, composed of senior technical experts including digital, analog, software, and mechanical engineers as well as project managers. It combines optics, chemistry, mechanics, digital control, communication, and embedded programming. As a result, it is possible to provide hardware and software development services, such as flow control, temperature compensation, photometric compensation, optical sampling detection, signal processing, analog and digital output, and remote communication. The product supports the simultaneous detection of gas-phase and liquid-phase samples, which results in industry-leading accuracy.
This is a new breakthrough and practice for Syntronic in the semiconductor field and it will enable improved key equipment localization and intelligent manufacturing in the industry. In the future, Syntronic will deepen its research and development efforts within various field even further, continuing its mission of providing customers with complete and reliable solutions.
In their project, Dahl and Johansson attempted to isolate the influence that antennas- and oscillators have on the positioning precision by designing and manufacturing an UWB positioning evaluation system.
The thesis writers modified their system to evaluate how its performance was affected by the use of different antennas and oscillators, over the course of the project. They were able to identify an interesting trend: the band-reject properties and increased frequency stability had a positive impact on precision.
According to Dahl, UWB positioning systems have promising potential and should be subjected to further research. “It is an interesting field with many different areas of application,” he says. “UWB positioning systems can be used to construct more reliable driverless vehicles. Another possibility is to combine them with GPS systems, to make it easier for drivers to localize themselves in challenging environments where they risk losing their GPS connections easily, like in urban environments with tall buildings,” he adds.
UWB position systems remain an area of interest at Syntronic’s Gothenburg office. “It was a rewarding experience to write a thesis at a company with experienced engineers interested in the same solution. At Syntronic in Gothenburg, some interesting projects in which virtual recognition technology was combined with positioning technology to create so-called ‘sensor fusions’ have been carried out. By using these sensor fusions, it is possible to improve self-driven vehicles by expanding their ability to determine their position accurately,” Dahl explains.
