Multitest's Powerful Plug & Yield Solution for High Power Applications
News Release from:
Multitest elektronische Systeme GmbH
20 July 2012
Multitest is pleased to reveal that its MT9928 gravity handler ideally supports the special features of the recently launched ecoAmp Kelvin contactor. Field proven temperature performance and highest positioning accuracy ensure cost-efficient and reliable tri-temp testing as well as highest test yield.
The MT9928 features leading thermal performance across the entire range from -55° C to + 155° C. Temperature accuracy of +/- 2.0°C and stability of +/- 0.5°C are proven by numerous installations at high-volume production sites. Soaking will never experience bottle necks with the MT9928: In case the large soak capacity is not sufficient, a soak booster is available that cuts the soak time by 50 percent. Larger packages – often seen for power ICs – will directly benefit from this.
Power ICs also often require Kelvin testing that only can result in high yield if the device-under-test can be positioned very accurately into the contactor. The MT9928 fully supports this advanced requirement of Kelvin testing.
High power ICs are the enabler for many state-of-the art electronics that are used for automotive and electro mobility applications in the energy and industrial sector, for lighting (LEDs) or for power control and management. Due to these applications they combine the requirements for high power of 500 Amps and more with tri-temp test. Typical package types include TO, SO, QFN, DPAK and power modules. Commonly these packages are delivered in tubes. With an installed base of more than 950 handlers, the MT9928 is the most established handler for tube feed.
The MT9928 leverages long-term experience to provide state-of-the-art solutions for today’s trends. Together with the ecoAmp Kelvin contactor and the Multitest test interface boards, the MT9928 is a high performance solution for high power ICs.
