Amkor Technology Inc., Micro Component Technology Inc. (MCT) and Nextest Systems Inc. have demonstrated a strip testing technology at the Semicon West Conference. This strip testing process was developed by Amkor using an MCT Tapestry automated strip handling system integrated with a Nextest Maverick II GT digital tester.

According to Amkor, this process allows for mass parallel testing at full device operating speeds by combining standardized strip handling tooling and robotics, new generation test systems, and simplified contactor methodologies. With this, test costs are said to be reduced by about 50 percent.

Amkor currently has several combined MCT/Nextest strip test systems in production and has tested over 200 million units in strip test form.
