August 28, 2018

Success Story – Europe

Optoelectronic Probe System with Thorlabs Multi-Axis Programmable Manipulators

Customer Requirements:

  • Manual Double Sided Probing System (DSP) for testing optoelectronic devices in die and module form.
  • Manual loading and un-loading of the device
  • The system had to be configured to electrically stimulate from the top of the device and optically stimulate and detect from the side of the device.
  • The manual three axis manipulators were placed on the top platen.
  • The programmable multi-axis optical manipulators were located underneath the top platen and placed on the bottom side platen.
  • The devices were heated and cooled with a thermal electric cooler (TEC).
  • DC and HF Probes are used.
