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 the scalable design of the MT2168 allows users to adjust the base unit configuration to the actual requirements – not only at the initial installation, but also later, e.g. if the MT2168 is moved from engineering to a high-volume site.
The upgrade from a basic, cost-efficient configuration to a higher level setup can be performed in the field at any time. The MT2168 generally offers various configurations with smooth transitions. As a result, the system can be configured to fit to the needs of any engineering site. This scalability enables users to optimize parallelism, test time throughput and automation levels.
In addition to cost savings, the scalable design of the MT2168 ensures that the final test in volume production is done on the respective equipment that was used for product and test development. This is true within one IDM as well as for the cooperation between fabless companies and OSATs.
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. Globally, more than 700 employees serve the company’s customers in offices and branches in North America, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, China and Thailand.
