The new ethermVIEW™ liquid crystal thermographic analysis system provides optical temperature measurements of active PCBs and components using the color response of thermochromic liquid crystals (TLC) for non-invasive thermal studies. Developed by Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc., the system includes a high performance, solid-state color camera for macroscopic inspection of boards and components coated with heat-sensitive liquid crystals. The camera features a flicker-free white light source for clear viewing of dark surfaces and partially concealed features. It links to a PC by Firewire, the standard connection for high definition video devices. For image processing and management, the system includes the proprietary thermSOFT software used in other ATS thermal analysis devices. A transformer is provided for international use.
