February 24, 2011 — Multitest, a designer and manufacturer of final test handlers, contactors and load boards used by integrated device manufacturers (IDMs) and final test subcontractors, received its fifth full purchase order for its InCarrier device transfer system with InStrip test handling system adapted to metal frame-based carriers.
This new test handling process differs from traditional tube or tray loading of devices into gravity feed and pick-and-place systems. Instead, singulated devices are loaded into a patented micro-spring carrier frame that is handled on Multitest’s strip handling system.
With the InCarrier device transfer system, Multitest can achieve high test parallelism for singulated devices without compromising quality through post test singulation processing. The actual test handling is practically jam free, even for devices as small as QFN 2 x 2mm.
Multitest manufactures test equipment for semiconductors. Multitest markets test handlers, contactors, and ATE printed circuit boards. For more information about Multitest’s InCarrier, visit www.multitest.com/InCarrier.
