Introducing the FormFactor Cascade Chucks Non-thermal and thermal chucks

Chucks and Thermal Systems

All FormFactor wafer probe stations are fully integrated with an exclusively developed non-thermal chuck or a highly-reliable thermal chuck system from ATT. Depending on your application, temperature range and performance requirements we offer a large variety of thermal systems from -60°C to 300°C, ranging from the most powerful and fastest high-performance systems in the market to extremely economic systems providing the best cost-performance ratio you can get.

All our systems are nickel or gold-plated and guarantee superior electrical performance. Our patented MicroVac™ and FemtoGuard™ technologies provide advanced measurement accuracy and ultra-low wafer contact resistance, even for warped/thin wafers.

The modular concept for convenient and cost effective system upgrades provides highest safety of investment and easy customization.
