Test equipment effectively manages power dissipation

Multitest has revealed that its MT2168 pick-and-place handler now boasts the ATC option, making it a cost-efficient and flexible solution for managing low to medium range power dissipation at multisite test cells with up to 16 sites. The add-on to the standard MT2168 can be mounted and demounted effortlessly and is geared for test development and high volume production, stated the company.

Today's demand for ever-higher speed and low space has driven package density and functional integration, in particular in mobile applications. Though the power dissipation in such environments is significantly less than in the high performance applications, thermal stress may damage the packages, temperature test may be distorted and test repeatability and yield lost. Additionally, there is a higher cost pressure for this market, which requires best cost of test configurations.


Multitest meets this need for managing power dissipation with the ATC add-on to the MT2168. No dedicated equipment is required, but all ATC functions are delivered by parts of the conversion kit. The operation is unchanged to a standard set-up and no dedicated training or spare part management is needed.

Ensuring high flexibility, the Multitest ATC can easily be mounted, demounted and changed to other MT2168 handlers in the field. Any standard MT2168 can be configured with this add-on, but will be available for standard test again once the add-on will be removed.
