Test Interface Boards – Customers Appreciate Multitest Pulse Plating Process for Board Fab

Aug 20, 2012

 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 Pulse Plating Process provides significant advantages in terms of fabrication cost and cycle time. Multitest Pulse Plating has been released to manufacturing for all major board customers. The proprietary Multitest process has proven market-leading performance in various customer applications.

Originally the process was developed to support ultra high aspect ratio requirements at 0.4 mm pitch. Multitest has developed a customized plating process for small via diameters in high layer count PCBs used in ATE test. The process allows for .0051" diameter through-holes into PCBs with up to 40 layers.

The Multitest Pulse Plating Process is applied particularly to BGA and WLCSPs but also can be used for vertical probe applications. It eliminates the need for sequential lamination in most 0.4 mm pitch applications. This same technology is deployed for 0.3 mm pitch BGA applications with through-hole construction.
