S47 - Probe card adapter
Mechanical fixture for mounting a probecard of 4.5" width (114 mm) on a prober.

- Provide signals to the DUT while making analysis with separate needles controlled from micropositionners
- 2 models are available, one with no adjustment, another with theta adjustment

S725P - Micropositioner S725 with pivot head
This economic micropositioner will allow landing on pads or lines down to 20 µm.

- Pivot head (quick Z down before fine adjust, ideal for probe station)
UxTB - Coaxial Probe holder with teflon isolation
Specifically designed for low noise measurements, the coaxial probe holder allows probing at low leakage
MOTICAM1080 - Digital Camera
Camera adaptable on all trinocular microscopes, useful for live positionning.

- Multi-output for live view on monitor
S926P - Precision micropositioner S926 with pivot head
This Precision positioner packaged in a small footprint allows placing probe tip on pads ou lines within accuracy of the micrometer.

- The Pivot head is perfect for a quick positioning in Z
- Other versions of the S926 offer Spring head (limiting needle pressure) or fixed head
TA-VIS-7575 - Active antivibration table
The table allows pneumatic filtering of vibrations, the 4 dampers efficiently filter the mechanical noise from the ground or neighbourhood for an ultra fine probe analysis, inspection or assembly.

- Platens available in several dimensions upon size and weight of the equipment
