The workgroup is part of the CAST initiative, which was formed in 2008 by semiconductor device makers and test industry suppliers to engage in and resolve common industry issues related to higher test equipment utilization, lower costs, and greater standardization and return on test-related R&D.
The goal of the group is to minimize the number of docking solutions by addressing the tester, prober, handler, docking interfaces and manipulators. The group will work on a set of common definitions to enable the development of technical standards to insure reliable, cost effective docking and interfacing applications.
