Orion is the reference bitmap acquisition system for your SEM : it’s passive as it tracks the SEM internal scan generator signal. It’s cost-effective and provides full electrical isolation between your SEM and your computer.


Thanks to its flexible design, it interfaces to any existing SEM/STEM (see more in the sub pages) and requires only four connections : frame blanking, line blanking, video and ground!


Instead of being connected to the USB, Orion uses a PCI slot. This guarantees that the information flow from the frame grabber be constant, which is not the case with the USB !

In order words, the SEM scanning is guaranteed to be exactly reproduced in real time on the computer screen, line after line, instead of seeing block of lines being displayed at a time.
