Miniaturized and compressed manufacturing of electronics and semiconductor devices has resulted in complex electronic circuitry which presents limitations to physical access to various semiconductor components. Also, high efficiency electronic circuitry requires high-performance ICs and chips, with significantly high number of transistors fabricated and implanted in a way not to occupy additional space. Testing of such limited access circuitry is extremely complex and require sophisticated and efficient testing devices. Probe cards are such test devices which are used by semiconductor device manufacturers to test and sort at the wafer level. 

Probe cards provides an electrically communicated path between the wafer on circuit and the test equipment, to test and validate the electronic circuitry. Continuous miniaturization of semiconductor devices in the forecast years is expected to present huge potential for the probe cards market manufacturers.  

Probe Cards Market: Drivers & Challenges

Since last few years, the semiconductor industry has been involved in miniaturizing most of the electronic devices, in order to save on space and make them easy to handle. This prevailing miniaturization is pushing the semiconductor industry to come up with new and advanced testing technologies and devices, thus driving the market for probe cards. Advanced electronic technologies such as Through-Silicon Via (TSV), which is an electrical connection that passes through a silicon wafer used to create 3D ICs are also pushing the testing market. Semiconductor testing industry is extensively competitive in terms of pricing and margins. In the probe cards market competitive pricing is a major challenge, impacting the market vendors.
