DCG Systems provides solutions to some of the most critical design and process challenges facing advanced semiconductor and electronics manufacturers — making us one of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in North America.
Shrinking technologies, new materials and more complex structures such as FinFETs and vertical flash memory (V-NAND) are driving defectivity, especially where the circuit design is particularly sensitive to process variation. Often undetected by traditional inline inspection technologies, these non-visual defects reveal themselves as electrical faults that downgrade device performance, threaten reliability and destroy yield. It’s no surprise that the ITRS lists detection of non-visual defects among the industry’s most difficult challenges.
The problem becomes even more complex when failures occur at the device packaging stage. High-density interconnects, wafer-level stacking, flexible electronics and integral substrates mean that failure-inducing defects have more places to hide — making characterization more difficult, and more critical, than ever.
With more than 1500 systems deployed, DCG Systems serves customers worldwide from our Silicon Valley headquarters in Fremont, California and field offices throughout the United States, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Israel and Germany.
EAG’s analytical expertise is what enables us to help our clients to meet their goals. Our on-demand analytical testing services can help streamline R&D, solve urgent problems during manufacturing and help resolve materials related issues in the global supply chain, both within and between organizations.

In 1991, Eastern Applied Research began as a regional service provider for x-ray fluorescence instruments. Technical associates offered on-site certification, consultation, and repair services with a focus on the East Coast of the United States. Those associates realized that most clients were looking for a single source for XRF Technology service and support. So, Eastern Applied added an in-house standards laboratory for standard re-certification and manufacturing of new XRF standards. They also began offering XRF analyzers for their clients testing needs.
In time, through the organizations dedication to offering efficient response times and competitive pricing (an overall dedication to customer satisfaction) the client list grew and demanded additional technical staff be added to support that demand. Expanding the on-site service personal to include representatives to cover Central and Western United States was the next step in the evolution of this complete service provider. Eastern Applied Research has continued to grow over the years and now provides service and support throughout North America – covering Canada and Mexico with bi-lingual service personal as needed.
Eastern Applied’s core technical staff has a complete working knowledge of a wide range of XRF analyzer models and the field staff receives extensive training on each model to insure a satisfactory experience for the client. Sales of XRF analyzers has expanded from just reconditioned systems (used XRF) to include new analyzers from a leader in XRF technology – Hitachi High-Tech. XRF analyzers from Hitachi High-Tech are known for providing the highest reliability and excellent precision for a large number of application interests.
