Thousands of companies embrace combined environment accelerated testing that includes vibration (typically on an ED Shaker) and thermal testing, to rapidly improve the reliability of their electronic product designs. Conducting this practice early is most beneficial, as reliability can most easily be improved early in the development process.

Qualmark’s new Portable Rapid Testing System takes this to a whole new level. HawQ preys on and exposes failure points, and screams through thermal testing in a fraction of the time of traditional thermal chambers. This leading edge system allows you to conduct rapid testing with thermal change rates of 40°C/min from -100 to +200°C! By maximizingthe thermal cycles performed in 24 hours, you slash your testing time! Time is money, and HawQ will help you save it! But not just that, HawQ also delivers Six Degree of Freedom vibration at the simple push of a button. By utilizing the ultimate combined environment of rapid thermal changes plus vibration, your designs will fly through reliability testing. “Through this process, we have improved first-pass success during subsequent MIL-STD-1540 qualification testing, reduced the number of problems once in production, and improved… performance. These results are vitally important to our profit bottom line, plus they improve customer and insurance provider confidence in our ability to introduce new technology successfully.” [White Paper by Brian Kosinski & Dennis Cronin, Space Systems/Loral] HawQ is a cost effective, portable solution that is available for purchase or lease to utilize in, or near, product development groups. The Portable Rapid Testing System provides an easy to use solution with Ethernet/WiFi options to allow for remote monitoring by development teams, and is a quiet, vibration-isolated system for virtually all development teams, R&D, Reliability, and University Labs.

January 15, 2014 (Santa Barbara, CA) Asylum Research, an Oxford Instruments company, announces Scanning Microwave Impedance Microscopy (sMIM), an atomic force microscopy (AFM) technique that enables nanoscale mapping of permittivity and conductivity with unprecedented sensitivity and resolution on any material including conductors, semiconductors and insulators. sMIM is the latest tool in Asylum’s “Beyond Topography” initiative which seeks to provide valuable nanomechanical and nanoelectrical information in addition to high resolution AFM topography. sMIM incorporates electronics and proprietary AFM probe technology developed by PrimeNano Inc. and is available integrated exclusively with Asylum Research MFP-3D™ and Cypher™ AFMs.

Nanoelectrical AFM modes have long been used in microelectronics R&D applications because they can provide valuable insight into device structure, function and failure. However, most conventional modes have been limited to measuring either resistance or capacitance and have required laborious sample preparation. sMIM is a dramatic improvement on these technologies because it senses sample variations in both conductivity (resistance) and permittivity (capacitance) while requiring only minimal sample preparation. These capabilities also make sMIM applicable to a broader range of samples, including ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, and low-dimensional nanomaterials like graphene, boron nitride, and molybdenum disulphide.

“sMIM is the biggest advance in AFM nanoelectrical measurements that I’ve seen in my 12+ years working in this field,” said Keith Jones, Applications Scientist at Asylum Research. “Being able to visualize both conductivity and permittivity at the same time gives us a more complete picture of our samples. The sensitivity and resolution of the measurements is also way beyond the competitive technologies I have used throughout my career.”

“PrimeNano developed ScanWave™ sMIM based on core technology developed by Professor Zhi-xun Shen at Stanford University. A combination of exclusive shielded AFM probes and purpose-built electronics optimized for sMIM enable us to get results that are far superior to anything else out there,” explained Dr. Stuart Friedman, CEO of PrimeNano, Inc. “We are very pleased to partner with Asylum Research to offer an integrated sMIM solution. The capability of sMIM is even greater when combined with the world’s very best atomic force microscopes.”

1. Langer startup BINDs nanomedicine and drug targeting in $180M-plus Amgen deal

By Suzanne Elvidge comment_ico.gifComment | email_ico.pngForward | twitter-small.pngTwitter | facebook-small.pngFacebook | linkedin-small.pngLinkedIn
In a major coup for a startup that only turns 6 years old this year, nanomedicine company BIND Biosciences has signed a global and exclusive agreement with Amgen ($AMGN), the world’s largest independent biotechnology company. The deal combines BIND’s targeted nanomedicine delivery technology with an undisclosed Amgen proprietary kinase inhibitor to create an Accurin therapeutic with potential to treat a range of solid tumors.

BIND’s Accurins are nanoparticles that enclose a payload of drug within a biodegradable controlled-release polymer sphere. This is coated with a "stealth" layer that hides the particle from the immune system, along with ligands that recognize markers on cell surfaces and selectively target the drug to the disease site.

BIND CEO Scott Minick explained to FierceBiotech at the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco that the Accurins circulate around the body and then slip through leaky blood vessels to accumulate at the cancer site, potentially cutting the impact on healthy tissue. The lead Accurin, BIND-014, is in a Phase I trial for cancer.

The two companies will work together on preclinical development, and then Amgen will take over clinical development and commercialization. The deal could be worth up to $180 million or more for the smaller company, with upfront and development milestone payments totaling up to $46.5 million and an additional $134 million in regulatory and sales milestone payments for the first therapeutic indication. BIND will also get royalty payments on any sales.

According to BIND, this is the first commercial collaboration to apply a nanomedicine technology to a molecularly targeted drug, and Minick sees the agreement as a validation of BIND’s technology. BIND is one of the many successful startups spun out from the drug delivery labs of the redoubtable biotech inventor and entrepreneur Robert Langer at MIT.
