Multitest Successfully Concludes Test Cell Docking and Mounting Working Group SEMI CAST Releases Test Cell Docking and Mounting Terminology Guide

Sep 28, 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 Business Unit Manager Günther Jeserer chaired the Docking and Mounting Working Group conducted by the Collaborative Alliance for Semiconductor Test (CAST), which began its activities under the SEMI organization in 2008. The final result of this initiative recently was released by SEMI.

The document defines the generic terminology for all components that typically are found in a standard test cell setup in final package test, including perspectives, orientations and directions.The Docking and Mounting Generic Terminology Guideline document is a reference for equipment operators, specifiers, service personnel, and other industry stakeholders involved with test cell equipment features, specifications and operations.

The well-illustrated document covers test head/manipulator components and motions, test head swing positions, and device under test (DUT) positions, including swing and tumble motion definitions. The CAST Docking and Mounting Working Group manual is available free of charge on the SEMI Web site at www.semi.org/en/node/42146.
The CAST Docking and Mounting Terminology document represents a collaborative effort from many companies in the semiconductor industry. Now, with industry accepted standard terminology, the accuracy and efficiency of using, buying and servicing docking and handling equipment will be significantly improved. I would like to thank all contributors – our customers, business partners and peers. We had extremely open and collaborative meetings that brought together the issues and expectations of all stakeholders,” said Günther Jeserer.


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.
