DC Probing

We have so many styles of probe arms and probe arm holders to choose from. Analytical probing and micro positioning can be a large task in the semiconductor industry. We have two main DC probing arm styles. The 20240 and the 20249. The main difference is an additional drop in the 20249. The 20240 is also available in a center mount. All of these differences affect the reach and drop of the test arm. You can look at the section called FAQ's for more explanation on reach and drop.

All the test translation stages come standard with a 20240 or a 20249. The longer versions of these same arms are the 20240-2 through 20240-6 and the 20249-2 through the 20249-6. Also the center version of the 20240-2c through the 20240-6c. These test arm holders can be mounted upside down to give you more rise instead of drop. Take a look at the drawings for more help. We supply companies with analytical probing options that are custom for their project. Just email us with your analytical probing questions.

RF and HF probing

We have worked together with many customers to come up with a inexpensive solutions to help interface with probes made from a vast number of manufacturers. The arms and adapters also help with the numerous probe station designs. Some probes are testing at the same level as the base on the micropositioner and some have to reach up to hit the pads and others have a drop to probe. If you don't find what you are looking for don't hesitate to email or call.


Quater Research and Development builds many types of micropositioner translation micromanipulator stages to fit most all of the probe stations designs built today. Here is a list of some of the probe stations our micro-positioners have been used on. Micromanipulator, SUSS Microtech, Cascade Microtech, Signatone, Wentworth, Rucker and Koll, Electroglas and many others. If we don't have what you are looking for please feel free to email us with any questions.
