Multitest partners with international IDM for substantial growth

Multitest, a designer and manufacturer of final test handlers, contactors and load boards used by integrated device manufacturers (IDMs) and final test subcontractors worldwide, announces that its well-established MT9928 XM Gravity Test Handler recently outperformed two major competitors during an extensive evaluation at a key player in semiconductor production.

The benchmark process took more than one year and included an offline evaluation phase as well as a real production test. The customer was looking for an ideal solution for multi-site test handling of leaded as well as of leadless devices. The MT9928 XM won them over with its excellent jam rate and the fast package conversion even from leaded to leadless packages and vice versa.

Additionally, Multitest significantly improved the test yield, replacing competitor’s contactors with a footprint compatible with the ECON® sockets. The contacting solution was customized for the actual needs on the test floor and well harmonized with the handler setup. This integrated approach leveraged Multitest’s experience with handlers and sockets, and is a typical example for a Plug & Yield® solution. 


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 in North America, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, China and Thailand.
