Electrical Probe Station

Mini Electrical Probe Stations


Typical mini electrical probe stations care categorized into two segments – room temperature and low temperature probe stations. Low temperature probe stations can have a temperature range down up to Liquid Helium. Most common probe stations use either a thermoelectric stage or a gas cooled stage to reach sub zero temperatures. Mini electric probe stations are lightweight, easy to handle and use a minimum volume of gas for low temperature measurements. The size of probe tips, type of probe – DC or RF and sample size decide the configuration of the probe stations.Other parameters like X-Y movement, Probe tip travel range are equally important and should be looked into while deciding the models.
