A probe card for testing integrated circuit patterns having contacts deployed thereon, the patterns being formed in a microelectronic substrate. The card includes an opening providing access to a pattern and a ring of spaced conductive pads surrounding the opening. Anchored on selected pads are needle-holders having needles extending therefrom to engage the contacts in the pattern being tested, all needle extensions being of the same length and all needle points lying in a common plane. In order to facilitate attachment of each needle-holder to its pad on the card and to orient the holder before such attachment so that the needle point is precisely aligned with the related contact, an assembly fixture is provided.
