Semi-automated cryogenic wafer probing < 20 K

The PAC200 is a highly-precise semi-automated probe station for wafers and substrates up to 200 mm in a high vacuum environment, at cryogenic temperatures down to 77 K with liquid nitrogen or < 20 K with liquid helium. Designed for industrial environments and major research facilities, it supports a wide range of applications, including DC and RF measurements of the latest silicon, compound semiconductor and superconductor devices, MEMS and optoelectronic tests.

The PAC200 supports multiple optical instruments like IR radiation sources (black bodies). Up to eight probe positioners and/or a probe card can be integrated.

PAC200 Fully-Automated Cryogenic Probe Station with Loader

The PAC200 cryogenic probe station with loader enables fully-automated wafer handling in a cryogenic environment. This reduces cool-down and warm-up time, increases throughput and lowers liquid nitrogen consumption. Carriers with up to three wafer fragments and/or wafers can be prepared independent from the test cycle at cryogenic temperatures.
