Multitest recently launched the Atlas contactor, which has been optimized for cost-efficient and reliable testing of high end digital high ball count BGAs. Based on the well-established Multitest QuadTech flat probe technology, the Atlas contactor combines advanced mechanical and electrical probe technology for improved functionality and performance in manual test and automated test.
With an optimal insertion force and a large compliance window, the Atlas provides ultra-stable contact resistance over hundreds of thousands of device insertions. The Atlas can be configured for use without a floating alignment plate. The low Atlas per pin insertion force significantly reduces insertion strain on automated test handling systems while making the Atlas easier to use in manual test.
