High Volume Test for Absolute Pressure Sensors

Multitest InPressure HD System Released to Production for Automotive Application

Multitest’s new InPressure HD system successfully passed all correlation tests on a customer test floor and has been released to production testing sensors for an automotive application. Multitest InPressure HD brings the field proven InPressure solution for absolute pressure test to the next level of parallel testing with up to 1440 signal lines.

InPressure HD is the next generation automotive test solution for absolute pressure sensors up to 16 bar. In addition to the increased number of signal lines, the form factor of the strip or carrier has been increased to 70 x 250 mm.

The InPressure HD supports strip-like InCarrier test. InCarrier based testing is known for low jam rates, high first pass yield and best temperature accuracy, ensuring high OEE even for challenging applications including automotive and industrial.
Short pressure setting times of below 2 seconds, as well as a parallel soaking architecture, enable the high throughput of this high volume manufacturing (HVM) test solution.

The InPressure HD continues Multitest’s modular InMEMS machine concept, which provides highest flexibility to customers by enabling different stimulus configurations for different sensor types.

Andreas Nagy, Senior Director Handler Group Marketing and Test Cell Innovation, comments: “The InPressure HD is the next generation solution for reliable HVM absolute pressure sensor test and calibration up to 16 bar, both of which are typically required in the automotive and industrial pressure sensor market. “
