Probilt™ Probe Card Analyzers




The PB1500 is a low cost probe card analyzer system. It has the capability to perform all the tests done on the larger PB3600/6500 probe card analyzers, but at a lower cost for low pincount cards. A maximum of 1,280 channels may be configured in the PB1500 MUX system. The Precision Measurement Unit (PMU) has the same accuracy, repeatability and range as the larger analyzers. The repair process consists of selecting a failing probe, which moves it under the binocular microscope and positions a crosshair over the correct position for that probe. Thus the probe is not only easily identified, the operator has a true reference (the crosshair) for the correct alignment position. The repair process time is cut to 1/2 or 1/3 that of standard analyzers or alignment stations.

The PB1500 is a bench-top instrument and comes complete with all required hardware. ITC provides low cost, standard motherboards for most probe card types. A sturdy bench provides the optimum in convenience and ergonomics.
