High Insertion Life
Almost three decades ago, IDI developed spring probe technology to assist the toughest interconnect customer in the electronics industry… the test engineer. Our test customers have relied on our spring probes to perform up to a million cycles, in demanding, no-clean, contaminated environments. In the semiconductor testing arena, our probes may cycle over 50,000 times within just a couple of days.
In the early 1990’s, IDI probe technology gained wide acceptance by product designers looking for “first-cycle, every-cycle” reliability over the life span of their products. IDI connectors allow for a higher and more consistent spring force that will remain constant — from the first cycle to the millionth cycle. They are extremely rugged and compact, and are able to deal with wiping interconnect motions as well as harsh environments. Mechanical features are designed into the probes to make PCB mounting simple, whether by wave, hand, or reflow soldering processes.
