NorCom 2020

The Most Advanced Leak Test System Available

The NorCom 2020 provides automated in line, full matrix leak   testing of hermetically   sealed microelectronic and optoelectronic devices. It eliminates the need for helium mass spectroscopy and gross leak bubble testing by utilizing a patented laser interferometer to simultaneously measure gross and fine leaks in hermetic devices.

Since the reliability of hermetic electronic packages is dependent on the detection of gross and fine leaks, the NorCom 2020’s pinpoint accuracy, repeatability and increased production throughput make the system an essential requirement for hermetic device production.

The NorCom 2020 provides quantitative leak test results in the industry standard of cc-atm/second helium. The system is ideal for optoelectronic, semiconductor and PC board-mounted devices for military, aerospace and telecommunication applications.

Features:

  • Simultaneously tests for fine and gross leaks
  • Quantitative results measured in cc-atm/second helium
  • One-step calibration and setup
  • Tests variety of hermetically sealed devices, including PC board-mounted and pig-tailed packages
  • Provides Statistical Process Control (SPC) for tracking of test results
  • MIL-STD 883 and MIL-STD-750 compliant

Applications:

  • Military Hi-Rel
  • Microelectronics
  • Optoelectronics
  • Microwave
  • PC board-mounted devices
