Insidix is a French (Grenoble) based company created in 1996. The company’s earliest activity was in the provision of non-destructive testing services to the French market. Utilizing the most advanced technologies available, and combining multiple approaches to provide the most beneficial analyses to its customers, Insidix quickly became a prominent service provider to the microelectronics industry. The company’s laboratory testing services were subsequently expanded to encompass other industries, including automotive, aerospace, defense and medical.
In 2006, Insidix decided to contribute to the development of NDT control systems by investing heavily in R & D, with the goal of developing a new solution that would help analyze and explain the behaviour of components under thermo-mechanical stress. In particular, Insidix was determined to provide an instrument capable of measuring thermo-mechanical stress induced warpage under realistic reflow conditions. For Insidix customers, this R & D investment was aimed at reducing costly design and production failures due to component warpage under temperature variations during production or in use. The successful result of this investment was the development of TDM, Insidix’s proprietary topography and deformation measurement machine, which was introduced to the European market in 2007, and has subsequently been made available to the U.S. and Asian markets through local representatives. The TDM equipment uses Projection Moiré which is acknowledged as a superior technique for temperature-dependent warpage measurement, and this makes it a very unique solution on the market today.
Since its introduction, Insidix has continued to invest in R&D associated with TDM to expand the capabilities of the machine and its potential applications, and to investigate the possibility of incorporating customer requested enhancements that would address specific customer needs.
