Interposer

Product Descriptions:

Thin film interposer technologies are an alternative to the traditional probe technology, and are used to provide an electrically transparent temporary connection between chips and test equipment.
Utilizing a pad defined, isotropic conductive elastomer, the extremely short current path, low resistance, and ultra-low inductance and capacitance of this technology delivers the clearest possible picture of how your chips are performing. This technology is particularly effective with high-frequency and high-current chips.
