Capacitive Transducer Technology
Nanodyne has developed capacitive transducer technology that has hundreds of times better sensitivity that competing strain gauge technology. We can produce 1 gram full scale load cells with microgram resolution. Our accelerometers can be used for applications from automotive performance testing to seismic measurements for oil and gas exploration and earthquake/nuclear test ban monitoring. Performance is better than that of moving coil geophones and seismometers at a fraction of the size, weight and power consumption.
Test Probes & Metal MEMS
Nanodyne is supplying a hard disc drive manufacturer with tiny electromechanical test sockets for verifying the functionality of the read/write head prior to permanent attachment to the suspension. This drastically reduces the scrap cost from rendering good suspensions useless by attaching bad heads to them. Electrical probes can be made for semiconductor wafer testing and printed circuit board testing, as well as individual component testing. Probe pitch can be as small as 50 micron.
