Protecting Wafer Probe Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Dual ACP on-wafer probesIf you’re a probe customer, or thinking of becoming one, we want to make sure that you are not only completely satisfied with your on-wafer probe, but that you’re positioned to maximize your probe investment. With this is mind, we’ve launched a probe repair program with a fixed-price model.

We will repair all single and dual ACP on-wafer probes, FPC and Infinity Probes® at a fixed price per the table below. All single-signal ACP, FPC and Infinity probes (frequency < 110 GHz) received in quantities of 12 or less will be repaired within one week.

Multi-contact on-wafer probes including Unity™, Eye-Pass®, ACP-Q, DCP and WPH-900 probes will have a fixed repair price less than or equal to 50% of the standard new price (+ $100 for international shipping and handling).

NOTE: This program does not include our family of |Z| Probes® and ProbeWedges™.
