IDI offers the broadest selection of replaceable spring contact probes for production testing of both bare and loaded PCB's, flex circuits, substrates, connectors, back planes and other circuitry. As the recognized leader in probe technology, IDI has always been the choice for custom design work in the probe industry. As a result, IDI now provides the deepest and widest selection of probe configurations, materials, and tip styles anywhere in the world.
Founded in 1979, IDI quickly established itself as the spring probe market-share-leader in the ATE industry. Today, some customers believe that IDI makes the longest lasting spring-loaded contact probes, they have the best performing sockets, and that IDI designs the most reliable product connectors.
IDI Dovetail® Modular Connector Series is a rugged new interconnect system designed to perform in environments that feature shock, vibration, and extreme temperatures. Adding to the benefits of IDI's proven C Series, Dovetail connectors make rapid prototyping possible with their versatile and adaptive nature. This significantly reduces time-to-market cycles. It is possible that a designer can configure the exact combination needed in a single day, bypassing tooling issues and long lead-times.
IDI Battery and Connector Probes are designed to optimize contact performance in high-reliability, multiple cycle interconnect applications. Examples of typical applications include the connections between a mobile radio's PCB and its battery; a board-to-board interconnect for docking of a portable device to its programming station; or an interconnect between a camera body and a powered zoom lens. These rugged and compact probes are ideal for direct mounting to printed circuit boards Their electrical performance is maximized to provide a reliable path for either a power supply or signal path.
IDI's C Series Connectors ensure a reliable, rugged connection in the harshest environments. Standard pins offered in custom configurations meet the exact footprint of the user's application. Ground, power, and signal options are available in 6 mm and 4 mm lengths. The C Series from IDI are great for RF, high speed, and mixed signal connectors. Ground contacts mate first, break last to support hot swap applications. Power contacts' probe design supports increased current carrying capacity. The C Series Connector Probes are offered in surface mount, thru hole, and solder cup termination options.
