– MPI Corporation’s Advanced Semiconductor Test division achieves breakthrough in fully traceable RF calibration up to 110 GHz

BRAUNSCHWEIG, Germany, Jan. 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The Advanced Semiconductor Test (AST) Division of MPI Corporation, a pioneer in on-wafer test solutions, today announced a landmark achievement in RF calibration technology. In collaboration with Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Germany, the division successfully achieved full traceability in the characterization of a commercially available calibration substrate up to 110 GHz and established a new benchmark in the industry.

This achievement, led by Dr. Andrej Rumiantsev, Director of RF Technology at MPI-AST, represents a significant leap for the entire RF product line provided by the MPI product line. Fully traceable characterization paves the way for more accurate, reliable and universally accepted high-frequency measurements, essential for cutting-edge technologies like 5G.

“Achieving full traceability in RF calibration at such high frequencies is a testament to our dedication to precision and quality,” said Dr. Rumiantsev. “This breakthrough is the result of our long-term cooperation with PTB. It is not only a breakthrough for MPI-AST but a significant step for the entire microwave measurement community, semiconductor and telecommunications industries.”

“Establishing national standards for RF system calibration at the wafer level is the goal that PTB has been working towards for several years,” said Dr. Uwe Arz, head of the Wafer Scattering Parameters Group at PTB, Germany. “We are proud to announce the solution to transfer the traceability chain to MPI’s commercial calibration substrate for the first time in the industry.”

MPI-AST’s latest achievement underscores its role as a leader in the semiconductor testing industry, promising to break new ground in high-frequency testing and solidifying its position as a market leader.
