Greetings Raith Users and Raith USA People:

I am pleased to announce that RAITH will likely be back up and running 
for Raith Champions to test the system overnight Tomorrow evening.

Today I was able to troubleshoot and recover the IEE-488.s interfaces to 
the Piezo Controller and the Picoammeter modules.  There was a conflict 
with the SW versions of these modules and the service package 
differences between our old computer, now deceased, and the loaner PC we 
received from RAITH USA. 
Thanks to Cole Loomis, Kevin Burcham, and Joe Klingfus for timely 
response to my queries late last evening.

Mike Santomango from Carl Zeiss SMT Inc. was able to come in today and 
we quickly located the D-sub 9 connector plug to the EHT interlock for 
the 8 KV to the In Lens detector restoring its functionality.  E/O board 
calibrations were completed and imaging functions were restored.  I am 
running in the system and FE_GUN tip overnight and will qualify the 
system tomorrow afternoon.

Raith Champions whom wish to access the system after qualification 
should see me after 2 PM tomorrow (Thurs.) in hope of obtaining access 
that evening.
Stanford Users whom are meeting critical project deadlines should also 
contact me tomorrow afternoon. Together we can put together a schedule 
to catch up to the backlog. 

Thank you for your support!

James W. Conway
