aixACCT Systems GmbH


aixACCT concentrates on the following market segments:

  • Non volatile memory technologies (e.g. FeRAM, RRAM)
  • MEMS (e.g. cantilevers, membranes)
  • Actuator / sensor applications (multilayer actuators, pressure sensors)

The products range from material characterization to device qualification during production.

aixACCT products are continuous innovations, which have been introduced into the market over the last decade, for example

  • Double beam laser interferometer system for 6′′ wafers to qualify MEMS devices
  • Wafer level testing of FeRAM cell capacitors and 1T-1C cells
  • Multilayer actuator qualification in a sample holder with compressive load to emulate system environment and application specific loading

aixACCT products cover the whole range from material study to prototype testing and quality assurance during production. Even the field of FEM simulations is covered by aixACCT. This gives our customers the ability to prove at an early stage of product development the functionality of new devices. aixACCT entered into a strategic alliance with INOSTEK Inc. Korea to cover the whole product chain, including material supply, in order to create a trustful relation to its customer from the initial idea to the ready for sales product.

Success of this philosophy can be found worldwide in products like printers, car injection systems, and memory devices.

Our team at aixACCT consists of highly qualified people from material, mechanical, and electrical engineering. This guarantees the high level of innovations. "We understand your requirements and demands. Based on this fundamental understanding we create new testing concepts and system solutions."

Radiant Technologies, Inc.


Since its inception in 1988, Radiant Technologies, Inc. has been dedicated to innovating characterization equipment for non-volatile memory technologies, non-linear electromechanical materials, MEMS, and actuator/sensors.   Radiant pioneered and developed the first ferroelectric test system which quickly became the world-wide industry standard for characterizing non-linear materials.  Precision and accuracy has been the driving force behind the engineering of our test equipment and thin ferroelectric film components.  Radiant designs its testers to minimize distortion and maximize accuracy.

Radiant makes its own ferroelectric materials and transfers these various functions into integrated circuit scale devices, greatly reducing their cost while greatly increasing their quality and functionality. The key to this strategy is an integrated ferroelectric device manufacturing process developed over the last decade that can support product development and sales. Today, Radiant offers this capability as the only integrated ferroelectric device foundry in the United States.


Radiant's advanced ferroelectric technology rests upon three legs:

1) Radiant's unique integrated ferroelectrics manufacturing process,

 2) Radiant's position as the premier test equipment company in the world for ferroelectric materials, and

3) Radiant's proprietary model for the physics of ferroelectric devices.


Radiant's test equipment and procedures were created and refined on its ferroelectric process line, making them realistic and practical. In turn, Radiant's thin ferroelectric film process is one of the most advanced in the world from the proper use of Radiant's test equipment in refining film properties and reliability. Both the testers and the process are designed around a powerful physical model of the ferroelectric capacitor, a model that has been tested and proven continually with the testers in the fabrication process.
