A New Family of Programmable Probe Station Micromanipulator

September 22, 2020

SemiProbe Introduces a New Family of Programmable Probe Station Micromanipulators that can be Used on any Probe System.

Historically the programmable probe station micromanipulator could only be used with a specific model of probe system that required the integration into their software and control electronics. The SemiProbe programmable probe station micromanipulators can be used on any probe station – manual, semiautomatic or fully automatic or on anything requiring precise or remote X, Y and Z movement.

“We developed the product to address applications that required “hands off” probing and did not require the user to exclusively use them on probe stations that we manufactured ”, says Denis Place, Founder, VP of Sales at SemiProbe. “It made sense for us to expand our family of industry proven manual manipulators to provide the customer with programmable versions that work on any probe system”

Features and benefits of the programmable probe station micromanipulators include:

  • An all-inclusive kit that includes the programmable micromanipulator, a joystick, a controller, and cables. Controllers are available in 4 and 8 manipulator versions. 
  • Can be controlled locally via the joystick or remotely via remote commands
  • Small footprint – up to 8 programmable micromanipulators (MA-9000 PM or MA-9100 PM) can be used on the SemiProbe PS4L probe stations – open air, chambered and in vacuum
  • Can be used for many applications – semiconductor, biological, medical, etc. – in research to production 

The programmable probe station micromanipulators (MA-9000, MA-9100 and MA-8500) are available to purchase now!
