Multitest Launches Multi-site Testing for High Pin Count Devices: MT9510 Pressure Booster

May 26, 2010 | Rosenheim, Germany - For high pin count devices, the capability of multisite testing generally is limited by the required contacting force. Additionally, there are even complex, integrated ICs with an extremely high pin count for which even single site testing is critical because of too little contact force. The well-established tri-temp pick-and-place handler, MT9510XP, now offers an option to substantially increase the contact force. This new feature enables users to test even high pin count devices in up to eight contact sites in parallel.
