MPI RF Probes
RF wafer probes convert the electro-magnetic energy travelling along the coaxial cables to the on-wafer DUT and its contact pads. The conversion has to be carried out with minimal distortions and energy loss.
There are significant differences between the various types of RF DUTs: from discrete elements to complex ICs operating at very wide frequency range. RF probe technology therefore must support a wide range of frequencies and pitches as well as the various tip configurations. Finally, the probe price together with the probe lifetime directly influences the DUT cost of test. The latter, of course, has to be kept as low as possible.
With a critical understanding of the numerous challenges associated with today’s RF applications, MPI Corporation has developed TITAN™ RF Probes, a product series specifically optimized for these complex applications centered upon the requirements of advanced RF customers. TITAN™ Probes provide the latest in technology and manufacturing advancements within the field of RF testing utilizing MPI’s world class MEMS technology.
