Raleigh, NC, December 13, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Protochips, Inc. announced today the availability of the Precision Electric™ line of electrical E-chips for the Aduro in situ heating and electrical biasing system. This revolutionary new product dramatically increases Aduro’s versatility by allowing scientists to visualize materials at the atomic scale while conducting ultra-low current electrical experiments. The new electrical E-chips reduce leakage currents by 1000x over the previous generation of electrical E-chips.
The Aduro Heating and Electrical system advances the capabilities of previous models with a complete system with several new features, including upgraded graphical analysis and a low-noise E-chip design for improved signal integrity and isolation. Electrical experiments benefit from Aduro 500’s revamped electrical suite, which has a current sensitivity of less than 10 picoamps.
“Our new line of electrical E-chips enables users, for the first time, to accurately characterize nanoscale samples in situ,” says John Damiano, Protochips’ Chief Technical Officer. “The design of the E-chips and the materials used in their fabrication minimize leakage current and electrical parasitics, providing superior performance.” The new Precision Electric E-chips are optimized for in situ electrical experiments where currents are very low. These experiments require low leakage and extreme accuracy to be successfully completed.
Protochips will launch with 8 E-chip patterns that are available in gold or platinum and with or without holes.
Raleigh, N.C.-based Protochips, Inc. provides revolutionary products and technology for in situ microscopy. With in situ systems in use in 24 countries and an expanding international distribution network, Protochips’ innovative E-chip™ consumable technology fundamentally changes the way in situ microscopy is performed.
