The Probe System for Life (PS4L) is designed based on SemiProbe’s patented adaptive architecture. Unlike traditional systems, all foundation modules – bases, stages, chucks, microscope mounts, microscope movements, optics, manipulators and more - are interchangeable, making the PS4L the consummate solution for many different applications and budgets. This unique modular design enables customers to acquire test capabilities that precisely match their requirements. More important, as the environment or test conditions change, the PS4L can easily be field-upgraded to meet these new demands. With this design philosophy, PS4L customers realize substantial time and cost savings over traditional probe systems because they do not need to invest in a new platform when wafer size, levels of automation, or test requirements change.
