RF Probe Cards
ICT is ready to work with you to meet your RF requirements using ceramic blade cards or our VCT cobra -type vertical probe card technology. The high frequency version of the VCT uses symmetrical GSG traces of 50 Ohms. This technology has been successfully proven to be capable of up to 10 GHz. The stripline ceramic blade cards will provide RF performance up to 3 GHz.
ICT's solution offers a highly cost-competitive solution for probing at RF frequencies without significant NRE charges. In comparison with competing technologies, ICT's HF VCT was found to be generally superior to other technologies available. A comparative study between cantilever, vertical, membrane and RF probes was undertaken by a neutral testing agency, and at frequencies up to 10GHz ICT was found to be at the top end of competing technologies.
The RF VCT offers significant advantages in:
- Consistent, stable performance
- Minimal probe marks on pad
- Relatively low fixed costs for new devices
- Product is easily repaired
