Yamaha Fine Technologies Unveils Micro Prober MP Series "MP502/MP502-A" Brand New High-frequency Characteristics Measurement System
HAMAMATSU, Japan, Oct. 18, 2019 /Kyodo JBN- AsiaNet/ --

Yamaha Fine Technologies Co., Ltd. (HQ: 283 Aoya-cho, Minami-ku, Hamamatsu; 
CEO: Yasuhiro Nakada) has developed the Micro Prober MP series of measurements 
systems capable of continuously inspecting the high-frequency characteristics 
of circuit boards with high speed and high precision. The first products of the 
series, MP502 and MP502-A, were released on Friday, October 18.


The production of circuit boards using materials such as LCP and MPI that are 
suitable for high-frequency signals has increased in the electronic circuit 
board market in recent years due to the launch and spread of 5G communication 
services, and these substrates require to have better frequency 
characteristics. Until now, inspections of frequency characteristics have been 
conducted using sample inspections of test coupons.

In contrast, the new MP502 and MP502-A systems enable high-speed, high-accuracy 
inspections of high-frequency characteristics of actual product patterns when 
combined with a commercial vector network analyzer. This enables inspections of 
actual products that were formerly problematic, and measurement of all relevant 
mass-produced products.

- Allows high-speed transmission circuit boards to be inspected during mass
  production in a panel form
- +-20 micro meters high-precision positioning allows for inspections with high
- Supports independent upper and lower positioning to support multi-layer 
  substrates with inspection points on both surfaces
- Can be combined with the latest vector network analyzers provided by 
  measuring instrument manufacturers
