Probing is a way to test the CCD, making the electrical connections to run it while it is on a wafer or in die form. We receive CCDs on wafers, and sometimes as die. But, not every CCD we receive works or works well! Problems in manufacturing, shipping, or handling of these sensitive devices sometimes results in their demise. We probe all incoming CCDs so that we do not waste our time working on a device that is 'dead' or sub-par. (Picture at left shows the probe tips contacting the bond pads on a 2kx2k CCD during probing.)
