High-Resolution Liquid Crystal Thermography System For Cost Effective Temperature Measurement

ethermVIEW™ is a high resolution liquid crystal thermography system for cost effective temperature measurement of electronic circuit boards, micro circuits, hybrids, components and integrated circuits.

The ethermVIEW™ system uses the color response of thermochromic liquid crystals (TLC) for the purpose of temperature measurement. Liquid crystals reflect incident light at the visible wave length based on the temperature of the surface to which they are applied.
