The SemiProbe Lab Assistant family of probe stations is specifically designed to address the requirements of universities and research personnel. Lab Assistant probe stations provide simplicity, ease of operation, portability, affordability and modularity. Lab Assistant probe stations can be configured for DC or HF/Microwave testing configurations, including an array of sophisticated accessories that are usually only found on much larger, more expensive probing stations. Lab Assistants are available with 50 mm, 100 mm, 150 mm or 200 mm chucks and stages and can be equipped with many of the same thermal chucks, optics and manipulators that we offer on our PS4L line of probe stations.
The Probe System for Life, or PS4L, is SemiProbe’s patented adaptive probe system architecture. Unlike traditional probe systems, all of the basics components of our systems, including the bases, stages, chucks, microscope mounts, and manipulators, are interchangeable, upgrade-able, and configurable. The PS4L Adaptive Architecture ensures and optimal test configuration for each individual customer application.
PS4L systems are available to handle products from 50 mm to 300 mm, and are available in manual, semiautomatic, and fully automatic configurations. A unique advantage of the PS4L system is its ability to be upgraded at any point in its life cycle as your product needs or volume requirements change. As the customer’s business environment or test conditions change, the PS4L can be rapidly reconfigured to meet these new requirements. Changes to wafer size, automation level, or test procedure do not translate into a need for new capital equipment. This substantially reduces the cost of new product development and the time to procure the appropriate test equipment. Reconfigurations are typically performed in the field, at the customer site.
