The Lab Assistant Probe System Family

May 04, 2018

Lab Assistants are small footprint manual probe systems with probing capabilities ranging from individual die to 200 mm wafers or substrates.

The SemiProbe Lab Assistant family of probe systems is specifically designed to address the requirements of Universities and research personnel - simplicity and ease of operation, portability, affordability and modularity. The Lab Assistant provides features and options for both Device Characterization (DC) and High Frequency (HF)/Microwave testing that are typically only available in much more expensive systems. . Numerous accessories are available to enhance the system functionality such as multiple stages, chucks including thermal chucks, optics, manipulators, probe tips, vibration isolation tables,dark boxes and more.
