Description

Ultra High Power Probe

High Current ProbeFormFactor Beaverton Ultra-High-Power Probe

UHP PROBE

FormFactor Beaverton Ultra-High-Power Probe (UHP), a high-voltage parametric probe, handles both high voltage (up to 10,000 V) and high current (up to 600 A) at a wide temperature range (-55ºC to 300ºC). The UHP achieves full I-V characterization with one setup and one touchdown. Together with Tesla on-wafer power device characterization system, the UHP fully utilizes the high-voltage/current capability of Agilent B1505A and N1265A Ultra High Current Expanders.
  • Coaxial measurements up to 10,000 V and 300 A pulsed (20A DC), without the need for multiple probes and multiple measurement setup changes
  • Innovative multi-fingertip design to achieve even distribution of current and minimize pad damage
  • Probe current can be doubled up to 600 A when using double probe configuration
  • Highly reliable, stable and repeatable measurements with Agilent B1505A and N1265A Ultra High Current Expander.
