Multitest's Quad Tech™ Is Designed for Best Contacting Integrity

Oct 28, 2011

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 Quad Tech™ concept is the next generation of vertical contact technology. Its superior test yield and long probe life results in significant cost of test advantages.

Quad Tech™ uses a barrel-less architecture with four continuously engaged internal contact points. This design leads to excellent electrical and mechanical characteristics. Quad Tech™ features high current capabilities, high bandwidth and low inductance. Mechanically, Quad Tech™ offers a large compliance window to accommodate stack height tolerances.

The design of Quad Tech™ allows Multitest to apply a unique, extremely precise manufacturing process that also provides excellent plating quality. This process ensures long probe life, long cleaning intervals and a favorable probe replacement cost for all contactors based on Quad Tech™.

Currently, Multitest offers Mercury™, Gemini™ and Gemini™ Kelvin based on Quad Tech™.

The Quad Tech™ is a development of Multitest’s Contactors Division. The St. Paul, Minnesota location is 100 percent dedicated to contacting solutions.
