With the cost of energy skyrocketing, more focus and research is being directed into harnessing the sun's energy to power homes and businesses. Technologies based upon silicon wafer substrates, non-wafer silicon substrates and thin film are all getting attention from R & D to production. Test systems for these applications often require a combination of electrical characterization, exposure to an artificial sun source, unique contact requirements, and material analysis. SemiProbe has a rapidly growing base of customers testing these devices from the research lab to the production floor. Extensive integration experience allows us to adapt third party equipment with a probe system to provide integrated solutions.
