CUSTOM PROBE CARDS
In addition to our ranges of standard epoxy probe cards and those for extreme temperatures, low leakage and high voltage, we design bespoke probe cards to suit your more specific probing requirements.
With established probe card manufacturing facilities in the UK and the US, we can build both epoxy and blade probe cards to suit any wafer probing challenge.
wHAT CAN WE CUSTOMIZE?
Customization can include designing any of the following:
- Probe cards for use on a specific (non-Wentworth) wafer probe station without the use of a standard probe card holder
- Probe cards for use on non-standard probe card mounts or test heads such as XYZ manipulators
- Custom PCB layout
- Probe cards for applications requiring testing at extreme temperature with high voltage/high current
Our comprehensive library of master templates and our ability to create interfaces, ensures that our probe card PCBs can be used with all major tester platforms. At the same time, our advanced in-house design modelling software speeds up the custom design process and enables us to achieve quick turn-around times.
Our experienced probe card designers can design and build complete probe cards for you, however, we also offer the option for you to provide your own PCB if preferred.
uSING YOUR OWN PCB
Using your own PCB when building probe cards enables us to integrate your electronics designs so you maintain full control of the test. Another reason, customers often choose this route is because it can produce more accurate readings as test components can be positioned closer to the device under test (DUT). Reducing the use of longer cables and connections can significantly reduce the noise, and therefore increase the overall accuracy of test results.
Furthermore, it allows for components to be positioned closer to the probe, which allows better circuit optimization.
