Blades Technology is still used in many of today's applications and often used in high current/voltage applications.


Ceramic Blades

  • Used in sensitive high frequency measurement applications

  • Mechanical and electrical properties can achieve excellent results in low noise, low current, and high temp applications

  • Used for semiconductor, laser applications

Transmission Blades

  • Has an addition of a stripline transmission path which ensures the integrity of the signal

  • Decoupling components can be added to the signal path for electrical enhancements

Metal Blades

  • Still used in many of today’s small pin count applications

  • Are suitable for up to 100MHz

  • Used for semiconductor, hybrid circuit applications

Note: Part of why this parametric probing requirement works is the low leakage epoxy, special probes, layout of the probes, and proprietary cleaning solution along with how you handle the card.
