High-Performance UV EPROM/Wafer Erasing System Features Extra-Large Load Capacity

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - May 16, 2016) - Spectroline's "super-capacity" PC-8820C-LT UV EPROM/Wafer Erasing System meets exacting production requirements of high-density EPROMs and wafers. This system incorporates the latest technological innovations in the industry to ensure the highest UV intensities, fastest erasing times, larger load capacities and unmatched safety and reliability.

The PC8820C-LT is engineered for maximum irradiance uniformity. It has a nominal short-wave UV (254 nm) intensity of 70,000 µW/cm², which ensures fast, reliable and complete erasure of programmed memory from every EPROM, chip or wafer -- in as little as 90 seconds. Its extra-large load capacity can accommodate 15 - 6 inch (150 mm) wafers. By exposing EPROMs and wafers to high-intensity short-wave ultraviolet (254 nm) radiation, the chips are "cleared" of all old data and are ready for reuse.

The unit utilizes eight ozone-free, low-pressure, mercury vapor quartz grid lamp assemblies. Mounted on specular aluminum reflectors, these ultra-high intensity UV grid lamps produce up to four times the throughput of competitive systems. The cabinet is constructed of rugged, anodized aluminum and stainless steel. It contains a removable tray insert that readily adjusts to different heights, ensuring optimum UV exposure.

The PC-8820C-LT also features a light tower with red/yellow/green signals that indicate the mode status at every stage of operation. A rocker switch "Start" button allows fast and easy user control of the grid lamps, alarm and drawer "lock/unlock" modes. A cycle sounding alarm alerts the operator when each normal erasing cycle is complete and a lamp fault alarm sounds if one or more grid lamps fail. The control panel cover and internal security latch provide additional securities for the system.
