Xtralien Has Landed
Posted on Fri, Jul 24, 2015 by James Kingsley
Ossila is pleased to announce the launch of the Xtralien X100 - a new type of multi-purpose instrument to make the characterisation of semiconductors and nano devices quicker and easier (and lower cost).
Xtralien started in 2014 as a summer project within Ossila to see if we could build on the open-source hardware movement; in order to produce a precision test and measurement instrument for professional scientists and engineers. The project was so technically successful that we've now launched Xtralien as its own spin-out company in order to continue the development of open-source instrumentation.
The first product is the X100 which incorporates two source-measure units and two precision voltage sense channels, and can be used for measuring a wide array of semiconductor and device types; from silicon photodiodes to bio-impedance sensors. The 24 bit ADC and precision front-end instrument amplifiers give great performance, while the board-only design driven by a microprocessor from the open-source world keeps the price at a fraction of normal scientific instruments.
Xtralien is now hardware complete with great performance and we're busily writing demo code for customers. Take advantage of our early stage software concierge service - find out more on the Xtralien X100 source measure unit page here or contact us today.
