MPI Corporation Announced Successful Installation of the Next-Generation THZ Probe System at the Kollberg Laboratory of Chalmers University of Technology

Boosting Capabilities of Measurement Solutions for THz Frequencies with Unsurpassed
Measurement Dynamic Range, Calibration and Measurement Reproducibility


Taiwan, Oct. 6th, 2017 – MPI Corporation announced successful installation of the next-generation THZ probe system to the Kollberg Laboratory at Chalmers University of Technology, a leading research university located in Gothenburg, Sweden, to develop new measurement solutions for wafer-level characterization at THz frequency range.

The Kollberg laboratory, an already established infrastructure for terahertz characterization, now has superior capabilities for wafer-level electrical measurements, research on new materials, devices and circuits for sub-millimetre-wave frequency applications thanks to unique features of the new TS150-THZ probe system.

The integrated wafer probe system TS150-THZ from MPI Corporation was specifically designed for probing at THz frequencies incorporating many unique and innovative features to include seamless integration of vector network analyzer (VNA) frequency extenders of any type and frequency bands up to 1.7 THz. TS150-THZ provides the maximum possible measurement dynamic range and highest accuracy of measurement results. With the new and unique features, such as Probe Hover Control, Chuck Auto-Lock and Auto-Contact the new system significantly increases reproducibility of system calibration and measurement data and extends the lifetime of expensive THz accessories.

“As the renowned innovation leader in the field of wafer-level measurements, we are proud to deliver such a unique system to the world-class Chalmers’ THz researchers,” said Dr. Andrej Rumiantsev, Director of RF Technologies of AST Division at MPI. “As the application technology reached THz frequency, we will continue pushing wafer-level measurement limits with Chalmers’ researchers.”
