MEMS Oscillators - Great Growth Potential and Superior Performance Multitest Equipment Fully Supports the Advantages

Dec 04, 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 equipment fully supports the advantages of MEMS Oscillators.

MEMS oscillators are considered to be a favorable alternative to the long-established, quartz crystal oscillator technology. Today they represent approximately 1 percent of the timing market, but significant growth is expected in the future.

In addition to superior performance, reliability and the more comprehensive features, one substantial advantage is that packaging and test is very similar to standard IC processes. Economy of scale can be achieved. This significantly contributes to the favorable cost structure, price and availability.

Multitest’s standard Test Handler MT9928 has been deployed for calibrating and trimming MEMS oscillators for various customers. All systems were delivered as full Plug&Yield solutions, including the Multitest conversion kit, Multitest socket and Multitest load board. All typical package sizes of MEMS oscillators are supported (2.0x2.5, 2.5x3.2, 3.2x5.0, 5.0x7.0 and others on request).

The MT9928 Gravity Feed Handler ensures the required temperature accuracy (up to ±0.2°K), but also provides high throughput and low cost of test. This way, the test handler fully supports the favorable cost structure.

The MT9928 xm is a well-established, user-friendly and easy-to-maintain platform. Additionally, the unique Multitest Plug&Yield program delivers a fully integrated solution with all components harmonized, configured and, finally, checked at system level. Therefore, the MT9928 also is an ideal solution for companies that are not overly familiar with the standard IC test process.

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. Multitest has more than 30 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, providing solutions to the automotive, consumer and communication but also to the sensor market. Globally, more than 900 employees serve the company’s customers in offices and branches in North America, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, China and Thailand.
