Multitest, a designer and manufacturer of final test handlers, contactors and load boards used by integrated device manufacturers (IDMs) and final test subcontractors worldwide, has received another order for its unique InCarrier® test equipment from a major test house in Asia. The InCarrier® was preferred against standard singulated package test as well as other methods of high parallel test.
The customer decided on a comprehensive solution including an InCarrier® loader/unloader, an InStrip® and an InMEMS module for accelerometer MEMS test.
Competing against standard singulated package test and established high parallel test, the InCarrier® combines the advantages of both handling solutions. Thus, it overcomes the constraints of the strip test with respect to singulation after test and lead frame design.
InCarrier® offers a low cost of test with its high test parallelism, and ensures a robust test handling process even for small packages. As a result, the customer is able to handle 2 x 2 mm packages more stably and reliably than on any other known test process.
Multitest (headquartered in Rosenheim, Germany) is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of test equipment for semiconductors. Multitest markets test handlers, contactors and ATE printed circuit boards. Globally, more than 700 employees serve the company’s customers in offices and branches throughout North America, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, China and Thailand.
