NOIDA, UTTAR PARDESH, INDIA, June 20, 2024 / — According to a new study published by Knowledge Sourcing Intelligence, the probe card market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.21% between 2022 and 2029 to reach US$4.912 billion by 2029.

A probe card, also called a DUT (Device Under Test) board, is a pivotal component in semiconductor testing, serving as a bridge between the electronic test system and the semiconductor wafer containing integrated circuits (ICs). It is prepared with microscopic probes that make physical contact with assigned points on each IC, permitting the test system to transmit electrical signals and measure its electrical characteristics to assess its usefulness and execution. Probe cards are ordinarily made of a printed circuit board with accurately situated probe needles.

The market of probe cards is developing due to expanding chip complexity, advanced designs, rising innovations, and stringent testing necessities. Traditional probe cards struggle to handle complex gadgets like high-performance processors, integrated graphics, and 3D NAND flash memory devices. Advanced packaging techniques, 5G, AI, and IoT applications demand specialized probe cards. Economic factors like the global semiconductor industry and China’s chip fabrication facilities create a market for probe cards. Technological advancements and improved materials science ensure reliable and accurate testing.

The market of probe cards is extending with the launch of new products and innovative advancements on a worldwide scale, for instance, in June 2023, Probe Test Solutions Ltd (PTSL) launched its first product in the RF Probe Card market. The PhazorRF product family, targeting next-generation automotive radar, 5 and 6G applications, showcases the highest performance signal integrity RF probe card solution on the market.
