Active socket purge enhances pick and place handler
An optional active socket purge (ASP)has been added to the Multitest MT9510 pick-and-place handler. The ASP is another feature to support the excellent temperature performance of the well-established MT9510 test handler. By applying thermal controlled air flow to the pins the ASP keeps the temperature contact pin in the socket at the set test temperature.
ASP provides optimum thermal energy to device under test and reduces the energy losses during test significantly.
Particularly for high pin count devices this has a substantial influence on the overall temperature performance and therefore reduces the temperature calibration efforts.
Syariffuddin Kamarudin, Product Manager MT9510, explains: “With ASP we extend our temperature control features for the MT9510. This is especially important for the automotive market where strict requirements for temperature accuracy are in already in place. The MT9510 with ASP will support our customers to improve quality and yield.”
