JAWS 2.0 Undergoes Gamma Irradiation Testing

Posted by Ben Lapp on Jun 11, 2019 12:00:00 PM

The JAWS 2.0 tool uses a CMOS imager to provide a Full HD live image of the tool operation. In some applications of the tool in a nuclear power plant or radioactive material storage, it can be exposed to gamma radiation, which deteriorates the physical structure of integrated circuits. Quantifying the life of the retrieval tool helps the customer plan for efficient maintenance.
