Multitest’s MT9510 offers new contact site layouts
Multitest’s well-established MT9510 tri-temp pick and place handler is now available with various site pitch layouts, which are compatible with major standard handlers in the market. The new site pitch layouts enable to customer to re-use existing loadboards from other handling equipment for applications on the MT9510.
The Multitest MT9510 is a kitable tri-temp pick and place handler, which is known for its superior temperature performance and a wide range of options to address specific customer requirements. With an installed base of more than 800 the MT9510 platform is highly accepted in Asia, Europe and USA. The site pitch compatibility now allows for easy and economic transfer of applications form other handling equipment to this highly reliable system by reusing the existing test interface boards.
The MT9510 platform supports parallel test of up to 8 devices (MT9510 XP) or up to 16 devices (MT9510 x16) with up to 4 (MT9510 XP) or 8 (MT9510 x16) horizontal sites. The new site pitch layout for quad setups allows for horizontal site pitches from 40mm up to 80 mm and vertical site pitches from 60 mm up to 63.5 mm. The new site pitch layouts require only a minor modification of the handler base and therefore are backward compatible to a standard MT9510 site pitch.
Syariffuddin A.Kamarudin, Product Manager for the MT9510 platfrom adds: “The new site pitch layout option not only allows an easy transfer of standard applications from other pick and place handler brands, but also make the MT9510 compatible for the Multitest MEMS modules, which have been developed for the Multitest gravity feed product line. Beyond the direct reuse of existing test interface boards, we see our customer leveraging the loadboard compatibility at their engineering sites, where they now can use the exact same board design for package characterization, as it will be used later in volume production”.
