About Us

Business Focus

MicroProbe develops, manufactures and supports wafer-test probe card products.  We help semiconductor manufacturers bring new generations of non-memory devices to market faster and more economically.  They include microprocessors, graphic processors, mobile RF and SoCs, and analog and mixed-signal products – imperative drivers of today’s sophisticated, multi-functional consumer mobile devices.

In 2010, we were ranked as the number one supplier of advanced non-memory probe cards by VLSI Research, Inc.  And among the top five manufacturers of probe cards worldwide [memory and non-memory], we stood out as the fastest growing company by revenue.  With our expanding portfolio of advanced MEMs-based solutions, we’re on track to maintain this growth pace as semiconductor manufacturers face new challenges testing increasingly complex non-memory devices.

From the outset, our mission was simple: provide inventive, reliable wafer-test technologies for non-memory devices. Highly customized solutions that reduce the overall cost-of-test, improve yield management, and speed time-to-volume production for world-leading semiconductor manufacturers.  Since 1973, we’ve delivered on that promise with sophisticated probe card products that meet customers’ current and future technical and cost requirements, allowing them to extract critical data earlier in the test process to boost yields and profitability.

Along the way, we’ve earned a solid reputation as an innovator of customized technology and a trusted partner. Our comprehensive portfolio of probe card products includes Vertical, Cantilever, RF, and the industry’s most advanced MEMs technologies, enabling customers to optimize their performance and cost balance for a given application.

We support our customers from a global operations infrastructure that includes facilities in the United States, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, and throughout Europe. We also have three design and manufacturing facilities: San Jose, California for our advanced MEMs-based products and Carlsbad, California for our Vertical products. Our Cantilever products are manufactured in Suzhou, China, in the heart of the country’s Wuxi high-tech region.
