 The HPD IQ3000 is a high precision fully automated probe station for 150 mm, 200 mm or 300 mm substrates in a 4 K environment. To accelerate the realization of commercial quantum and superconducting computers, we provide chip developers with the tools they need to intelligently iterate on their designs.  

The IQ3000 integrates configurable DC and RF cabling, with custom probe cards available for ultimate flexibility of test configurations. A robust design with integrated magnetic shielding provides the stable environmental conditions necessary to ensure the highest quality data for the most sensitive superconducting devices. Fully automated wafer loading and the sophisticated Velox™ software suite allows for high throughput testing and unattended operation for rapid time-to-data.  

FormFactor’s longstanding probing expertise and decades of precision cryogenic experience come together in this system to take superconducting device test and measurement out of the lab into fab. 

Applications: Quantum computing, superconducting chip development, quantum information science
