September 15, 2011 — Test equipment maker Multitest shipped the first InPhone system to an IDM’s European site. The InPhone microphone test system can be combined with the Multitest InStrip test handler for highly parallel micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) test and the calibration of MEMS microphones. The InStrip has been configured for InCarrier test, allowing singulated MEMS packages to go through the parallel processing.
Multitest had to keep certain MEMS-specific concerns in mind with the InPhone tester. Microphone MEMS devices require an expanded linear frequency range and usually are packaged in small form factors. The devices are extremely cost sensitive. Mulltitest InPhone creates an excitement in a pressure chamber, ensuring homogenous acoustic stimuli across the parallel-tested MEMS packages.
Multitest manufactures test equipment for semiconductors, including test handlers, contactors, and ATE printed circuit boards. For more information about Multitest’s InMEMS sensor test equipment, visit www.multitest.com/InMEMS.
