High performance test contactors for product testing
Test contactors are used to determine the performance of electrical devices like micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), sensors, microcontrollers and integrated circuits. The probes are used in for instance the semiconductor and automotive markets for pre-launch validation and production tests. With dimensions as small as a few micrometers, they can be cost-efficiently mass produced by electroforming based on accumulated research.
Our test contactor solutions
Veco is a leading producer of electroformed vertical probes with a highly stable contact resistance and excellent mechanical and electrical characteristics. Our state-of-the-art lithographic equipment allows for rapid, accurate, and economic tooling of thousands of probes in a single batch. Every single probe is carefully monitored to meet the most demanding quality standards and guarantee consistency of the products. Though generally nickel is used as the main component, extensive variants are possible with inter-layers and coatings of various materials, yielding probes that perform optimally.
possible variants include Cu core, Ag and/or Au plating
