DataPhysics Instruments, Filderstadt, Germany
Address: Raiffeisenstraße 34, D-70794 Filderstadt, Germany
Long Business Description:

DataPhysics Instruments GmbH was founded in 1997 in Filderstadt, Southern Germany. As a medium-sized, international company we are developing, manufacturing and distributing innovative contact angle measuring devices, tensiometers humidity generators and instruments for characterising disperse material systems.
In many diverse engineering applications the ability of liquids to wet solids affects the quality of the finished products and the integrity/reproducibility of the manufacturing processes. Some important examples of this are the production and application of paints and varnishes, the development and the optimisation of composite materials, the use of adhesives and selection of solvents for engineering materials, and the biocompatibility of medical implants. Reliable analytical data is provided via the precise evaluation of static and dynamic contact angles, the surface free energy of solids and the surface and interfacial tension of liquids. Last but not least, the recent, rapid, advancements in nanotechnology and biotechnology have been possible, only, through an exact knowledge of wetting processes in the sub-microscopic level.
All over the world we are recognized as a responsive, empathetic and reliable partner for customers in a wide range of application fields of research, development and industry, always following the goal of being at the forefront of this fast developing science.
In order to create and improve solutions for surface and interfacial characterisation we work tirelessly and continuously in cooperation with many famous institutes. Due to our wide accessory range we are able to satisfy specific customer requirements and give each device an individual design.

Long Business Description:

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.
