Prior Scientific has designed the new H105 ProScan Microscope stage especially for precision mapping of large specimens including scanning of a wide range of semiconductor wafers (up to 150mm / 6 inches), photo masks, printed circuit boards and other material science applications. Delivering precise motorized movement in steps as small as 0.04 microns, the H105 stage is adaptable with a variety of sample holders, and the stage can be used with many of the larger upright microscopes or optical systems. The H105 provides an extensive travel range of 154mm x 154mm (6" x 6") and an impressive XY repeatability of +/- 0.7 microns.
Using Prior’s proprietary Intelligent Scanning Technology (IST), every H105 stage is fully mapped and has the stage calibration metrics stored on board which significantly increasing the metric accuracy of the stage. The use of IST minimizes metric errors which is even more important for larger movement stages, and also means that encoder scales are not needed, saving money.
