Since periodontal probing is such an important aspect of the periodontal examination, the technique must be systematic and consistent.
Even though periodontal probing is one of the best diagnostic tools we have available to assess periodontal disease, there are also certain "pitfalls" to be avoided:
The Agilent E2943A and E2944A comprise the industry's first solution that provides this ATCA interposer probing with AMC support for protocol analysis as well as protocol exercising.
With our new advanced development line devoted to leading edge technologies, and our new high volume production MEMS probe card factory, we are combining capabilities that are building on a decade of research and production expertise in MEMS-based wafer probing solutions, a combination that we believe is unique in our industry.
They can dynamically switch each probe among as many as 64 internal probe points, enabling an FPGA design that allocates, say, five pins to probing to reveal the activity at 320 internal nodes.
As well, customers should experience a significant reduction in test cell costs with the system's highly automated operation that simplifies the probing process, and the industry's fastest stepping speed that supports the requirements of high-volume production testing.
The Agilent N5397A FPGA dynamic probe interacts with an on-chip virtual probing technology, enabling MSOs to capture up to 32 internal FPGA signals for each debug pin correlated to external analog activity.
FormFactor continuously develops new probing technologies to enable the semiconductor industry keep pace with trends in DRAM and flash manufacturing.
FormFactor also plans to apply its S200(TM) high-speed probing test technology in probe cards for the Kalos 2 to create a low-cost test solution for fully tested NOR flash die.
Multi-site probing speeds up the process even further and enables the test engineer to obtain reasonable sample sizes.
The standard interface, based on Agilent's soft touch connectorless probing technology, is an array of probe pads arranged in a common footprint that can be probed by equipment from multiple vendors.
With innovations such as the ability to adjust bandwidth to optimize measurement capabilities and speeds up to 7 GHz, the Agilent InfiniiMax probing system continues to offer the highest performance and most usable configurations of any probe system in the market.
