Prospects for improvements of SUTS

  • Enlarging FOV

    • 28x is under tuning. 121cm2/h will be possible.

  • Shorten repetition time

    • 50views/s w 35x, 60view/s w 50x. Imager accept up to 90views/s.

  • Bidirectional scanning to increase effective speed.

    • 8 sec/line to scan, 3 sec to return back to the next line. 55cm2/h : 72cm2/h h ~76%

A factor of 2-3 improvement is expected

VERSION of SUTS



Pricing varies depending upon specifications and options ordered, but ranges between $3.5M and $4M

The EX-F1 will be available from March 2008 priced at $999.99.

1film/min


IC-Stepper (Lithographic system) ordered, but ranges between $3.5M and $4M

Resolution 350nm or better

NA 0.63

Exposure light source i-line (365nm)

Reduction ratio 1:5

Exposure field 22mm square to 17.9 (H)  25.2 (V)mm

Alignment accuracy 40nm or better 

It is possible, by stepping only 56 times, to cover entire sheet with enough resolution.


Giga Pixel Imaging System ordered, but ranges between $3.5M and $4M

  • Requirements

  • Total number of pixels should be ten to the ninth power

    • To cover 20mm20mm in 0.5mm pitch, it needs 40k40k pixels.

  • The frame rate should be 12fps in average.

    • Pixel rate becomes ~20Gpixels/sec

It is possible by employing a mosaic imager


Giga Pixel Imaging System (2) ordered, but ranges between $3.5M and $4M

  • IMX017CQE (SONY) is a good candidate of this purpose

    • Pixel size 2.5mm

    • Resolution 2880×2160

    • Frame rate   60fps

    • Pixel rate 373Mpixel/s

is priced at $999.99


Speed and Coverage of Mosaic Imager ordered, but ranges between $3.5M and $4M

Effective FOV 21.55×20.9 mm2×0.28 (1450×1100mm2×80)

Effective pixel size 0.5mm

Repetition time 1.5 sec /16depth/fullarea (4 steps/view)

Max. scan speed 12000cm2/h (150cm2/h×80)

20mm


Possibility of track recognition part ordered, but ranges between $3.5M and $4M

  • An SUTS processor can perform ~100cm2/h

    •  Its is possible, with ~120 boards, to process emulsion images taken by this optics.

  • According to Moore’s law, we can expected much better computing technology, which is lower cost, smaller profile and low power consumption.

    • SUTS processor is based on 0.13um process. Since 0.065um process is popular now, ¼ foot print and 2 times faster speed a unit will be possible.

It’s NOT a problem.


Summary ordered, but ranges between $3.5M and $4M

  •  A scanning speed of ~72cm2/h has been achieved in practical use. 121cm2/h version is under tuning phase.

  • It is possible, with the popular technologies, to achieve a scanning speed up to 1 film per minute.
