Challenging traditional approaches, XYZTEC's dedicated R&D team have developed a number of innovative technologies that provide a variety of ways to improve bond testing. Some of these developments are protected by patents, granted in Europe, the United States of America, China, Taiwan and/or other territories. Among these are:

Digital creep and drift correction

NL2016315, WO2017146566, PCT/NL2017/050081, EP3420329, US20190072441

Sensor apparatus for determining a deformation due to creep in an output of a sensor, said sensor apparatus comprising force means arranged for applying a mechanical force to said sensor, said sensor arranged for measuring, in a current measurement, a displacement of said sensor caused by said applied force and a processor component arranged for determining said deformation due to creep for a next measurement by said sensor.

Solder cleaning system

WO2016012357, PCT/EP2015/066389, CN2017022201023170, CN107073527, GB20140013225, US20170209903

The present invention provides a method of cleaning solder from the jaws of a solder ball test device. The method comprising the steps of heating a gas to a temperature above the melting temperature of the solder and directing the heated gas over the jaws of a solder ball test device to remove solder from said jaws. An apparatus which for carrying out the method is also disclosed.

A method for determining a strength of a bond and/or a material as well as a bond tester apparatus

WO2017/099590, PCT/NL2016/050850, CN108700502, US20180364151

This invention is for a method of improving accuracy when measuring a force of changing magnitude where said force is measured by a change in a part of the sensors position which is a function of said force. It also provides a method that may reduce adverse effects, commonly referred to as "ringing" or "artefacts" when any type of signal is filtered.
