MPI Chuck Systems

PRIME Chuck on TS3000 Automated Probe System

For different requirements, MPI offers a variety of:

  • Coaxial,
  • Triaxial,
  • RF,
  • mmW and
  • High-power Chucks

from ambient temperatures through -60°C up to 300°C.

Dedicated top surfaces with vacuum holes, gold plating or a surface manufactured with pure isolation material are example of the available options. Creative thinking and technical expertise sets MPI designs apart and are based upon what is actually required for the specific application.

Features & Benefits

ERS Integrated Technology (IT)

Wafer probing at different temperatures continues to be a significant challenge. MPI is working together with ERS to provide unified software and hardware integration of thermal chucks in all MPI Engineering Probe Systems…

Chuck Systems MPI ERS PRIME Technology

MPI & ERS PRIME™ Technology

Together MPI Corporation and ERS electronic GmbH designed the new 300 mm thermal chuck PRIME™ technology family, offering unsurpassed thermal flexibility with reduced soaking time by 60%, and the largest variety of thermal ranges on market. The systems can be configured with lower temperature starting points of -60°C, -40°C, -10°C, 20°C or 30°C and at the…


Thermal Controller

The thermal controller touch screen panel is seamlessly integrated into MPI’s TS150TS200TS200-SETS300TS300-SETS2000TS2000-SETS3000 and TS3000-SE probe systems and provides extremely convenient operation and also minimizes the test cell foot print.

ERS Patented AC3 Cooling Technology Incorporated

These chucks incorporate the ERS patented AC3 cooling technology and its air management system to purge the MPI ShieldEnvironment™ directly from “already used” air – reducing dry air consumption up to 30 to 50% as compared to other systems on the market.


Auxiliary Chucks

All MPI RF chucks include two auxiliary chucks built with ceramic material for accurate RF calibration.

High thermal stability probe platen

All MPI 300 °C systems include a dedicated high thermal stability probe platen to achieve optimal contact quality regardless of temperature range.

Three key and notable benefits incorporated into MPI thermal solution are:

  • Ultra-low noise chuck performance inside the shielded MPI TS200-SE and TS2000-SE systems,
  • High systems reliability.
  • Leverage air-cooled chiller performance to safe CDA consumption,
  • Superior electrical isolation for High Power applications up to 10 kV.
