MPI Corporation Introduces New 300 mm PRIME™ Thermal Chuck Technology

Taiwan, Nov. 14th, 2017 – MPI Corporation has introduced a new 300 mm thermal chuck designated PRIME™ technology for wafer probe stations with full temperature range thermal testing while delivering unsurpassed performance and flexibility.

Continuing the innovative leadership within the engineering probe system market, MPI Corporation has co-developed with ERS Electronic GmbH, the leader of wafer thermal solutions, a new 300 mm thermal PRIME™ technology. Capability enhancements include the fastest transition time in the industry, unmatched electrical performance, higher application flexibility, wider thermal range and easy field upgradability. Incorporated with the Dynamic Thermal Shield (DTS) from ERS, soak times are shortened by a factor of 60%. Within the complete test cycle of -60°C to +300°C, the PRIME™ technology chucks are ready for the test. Furthermore, the DTS continuous dew point controlled environment reduces tedious maintenance requirements.

The PRIME™ technology platform not only enhances performance, but includes a multi-application modular design concept for the ultimate in flexibility. Options include a dedicated top surface for RF & mmW, singular IC probing, inert-gas atmospheric testing for Wafer Level Reliability, High Power  with 3 kV isolation,

30 µT residual ferromagnetism, and ultra-low-noise down to fA range with more application specific configurations to be released in the coming months. In parallel, the 300 mm (12”) wafer probe station can be configured  with temperature starting points of  -60°C,  -40°C, -10°C,  +20°C  or  +30°C  and at end points  of +200°C or +300°C. All of this is easily configurable to specific test requirements and budgets.

“Unsurpassed flexibility in temperature range for applications from RF, mmW, ultra-low noise, 1/f, to high power applications and combine with unique field upgrade paths, the PRIME™ technology is the most advanced thermal chuck systems on the market today. PRIME™ technology enables the users to become more effective and efficient in thermal wafer probing applications.” Says Stojan Kanev, General Manager of MPI Corporation’s Advanced Semiconductor Division. “Adjusting to the current budgets, reducing cost of test, footprint size, significant CDA consumption and soak times for the entire system is the power behind the latest customer oriented solution.”

“We have managed to leverage the core competencies of both companies, and the result is our PRIME™ technology. We believe that PRIME™ will meet the demand of the fast-growing market for high voltage and high-frequency chips” says Klemens Reitinger, CEO of ERS electronic GmbH. “Our partnership with MPI has been extremely valuable in terms of gaining better understanding of the analytical probing market and its customers’ challenges. Being able to identify the future needs of growth markets such as the IoT, electro mobility and sensors is essential to ERS, and we believe that our new PRIME™ chucks will enhance challenging IC characterization and overall enable faster development time.”

MPI Corporation Announced Successful Installation of the Next-Generation THZ Probe System at the Kollberg Laboratory of Chalmers University of Technology

Boosting Capabilities of Measurement Solutions for THz Frequencies with Unsurpassed
Measurement Dynamic Range, Calibration and Measurement Reproducibility

Taiwan, Oct. 6th, 2017 – MPI Corporation announced successful installation of the next-generation THZ probe system to the Kollberg Laboratory at Chalmers University of Technology, a leading research university located in Gothenburg, Sweden, to develop new measurement solutions for wafer-level characterization at THz frequency range.

The Kollberg laboratory, an already established infrastructure for terahertz characterization, now has superior capabilities for wafer-level electrical measurements, research on new materials, devices and circuits for sub-millimetre-wave frequency applications thanks to unique features of the new TS150-THZ probe system.

The integrated wafer probe system TS150-THZ from MPI Corporation was specifically designed for probing at THz frequencies incorporating many unique and innovative features to include seamless integration of vector network analyzer (VNA) frequency extenders of any type and frequency bands up to 1.7 THz. TS150-THZ provides the maximum possible measurement dynamic range and highest accuracy of measurement results. With the new and unique features, such as Probe Hover Control, Chuck Auto-Lock and Auto-Contact the new system significantly increases reproducibility of system calibration and measurement data and extends the lifetime of expensive THz accessories.

“As the renowned innovation leader in the field of wafer-level measurements, we are proud to deliver such a unique system to the world-class Chalmers’ THz researchers,” said Dr. Andrej Rumiantsev, Director of RF Technologies of AST Division at MPI. “As the application technology reached THz frequency, we will continue pushing wafer-level measurement limits with Chalmers’ researchers.”
