Test device adds XTC features

The MT9510, the pick-and-place handler of Multitest, now provides extended temperature calibration (XTC) to manage medium range power dissipation of up to 50 W for the device under test (DUT).

An increasing variety of ICs such as graphic chips, require a medium range power dissipation control for DUT, prompting some semiconductor manufacturers to invest heavily in established active thermal control (ATC) systems or develop proprietary solutions in an area that is not their main business, even if they are inappropriate for most of these applications.

In the end, the companies' resources are drained without developing the real "turnkey" solution for their needs and without enjoying its advantages.

According to the company, the added XTC feature enables MT9510 to provide extended temperature control, ensuring that the die temperature inside the DUT is stabilized at a set temperature to avoid a temperature drift after contacting.

The XTC is integrated into the conversion kit for cost efficiency and to ensure its full availability in all MT9510 pick-and-place handlers in the market.
