Contactors prove substantial advantages even on non-Multitest test handlers
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 Cantilever style contactors often are used on non-Multitest, third-party test handlers. This complements Multitest’s Plug & Yield offering and makes the Multitest expertise available to all IDMs and test houses, independent of the handler brand.
In cases where Multitest Cantilever contactors replaced competitors on third-party handlers, the result was a substantial yield improvement. Even more impressive are the drastically reduced cleaning-related downtimes. Due to Multitest’s advanced Cantilever technology, cleaning intervals were extended by a factor of 10 — and sometimes more. This actually means that, e.g. for cold test, the utilization of the test cell was improved by one eight-hour shift or greater.
Multitest’s advanced Cantilever technology is based on long-term experience as well as thorough technical experiments, measurements and analysis. This allows Multitest to develop contact springs that feature an optimum set of all critical characteristics, such as contact force, plating, scrub and geometry.
Currently, Multitest offers ECON, nanoKelvin® and DURA® based on the advanced Cantilever technology.
Multitest’s Contactors Division has more than 25 years of experience in Cantilever products. Experts for Cantilever solutions are available at Multitest’s headquarters in Germany and at the St. Paul, Minnesota location, which is 100 percent dedicated to contacting solutions.
