Picoprobe – The World’s Finest Microwave and Oscilloscope Probes

picoprobeThe Micromanipulator Company carries the complete line of Picoprobe high-speed, active probe holders manufactured by GGB Industries, Inc.  As the originator of the Picoprobe® line of microwave and oscilloscope probes, GGB has served the on-wafer probing needs of the worldwide semiconductor industry for over thirty-five years.  The company got its start in 1980 by manufacturing a line of high impedance troubleshooting probes for diagnostic studies of the internal workings of complex logic and memory chips.  With their introduction of the high performance W-band millimeter wave probe in 1992, GGB was firmly established as the world leader in microwave probes.

Full Selection by GGB Industries, the Originator of the Picoprobe®

Meticulously crafted and precision-engineered, Picoprobes are designed for very high frequency (> 3GHz or microwave), low capacitive, loading, or high input impedance probing.  Micromanipulator’s wide selection includes high impedance active probes, microwave testing probes, and DC disposable probe tips including the T-4 Series Tungsten and the ST-Series Solid Tungsten.  Our most popular models are the PP12C; the PP18 and the PP34.  With any of our microwave probe heads, we recommend using a WAVE100 or WAVE200 RF/Microwave style manipulator with the appropriate probe link arms and cables.

Along with our picoprobes, we also offer the most comprehensive line of probe tips, probe positioners/manipulators, and probe stations including our new brand, the Mechatronics ACE preconfigured probe stations on the market today.  Together with GGB’s Picoprobes and Micromanipulators extensive product line,  you will find the tools you need to address a wide range of applications including general purpose DC characterization, high speed, wide bandwidth, and low current and high power. Additionally having such a wide selection allows you to configure your probe station to meet the measurement equipment interface requirements as well as your budget and personal preferences.

All of our products come with extensive warranties and a Full Life-Cycle Support, which includes a quality on-site technical support team.  With over 60 years in the industry, we have always measured our success by that of our customers’ and look forward to helping you.

Micromanipulator not only invented analytical probing in 1956 but we are the leading name in the field.  As such we reliably deliver the tools and life cycle support the semiconductor industry depends on.  Part of our company’s philosophy and what drives our success is an unfaltering commitment to our customers’ satisfaction.  Please contact us for more information regarding the industry’s best high-speed, active probe holders by Picoprobe®.
