Multitest Receives Multiple Orders for Latest Pick-and-Place Handler


Reading time ( words)

Multitest has received multiple orders for the new tri-temp pick and place handler, the MT2168 XT. Shortly after its official introduction to the market, four global IDMs have chosen the MT2168 XT for their volume production.

After comprehensive demos or onsite evaluations customers have chosen the MT2168 XT because of its temperature performance, high multisite capabilities, flexibility, and small floor space requirements. The MT2168 XT is considered a platform not only to address today’s requirements for highly reliable and cost-efficient test handling, but also because it offers great flexibility and an innovative architecture to support future needs.

The highly flexible contact site layout facilitates the transfer of existing applications from legacy gravity and pick-and-place handlers, by allowing for a reuse of the existing load board.

During demos and evaluations the sophisticated plunging solutions fully validated the expected best first pass yield, which directly supports high daily output in volume production.

"Besides the discussion on the technical details, it has become obvious, how important the combination of in-depth handling know-how with advanced innovation is for our customers. A new platform needs to provide reliable quality today, but also leverage the latest technology to support highest efficiency and lowest cost. The MT2168 XT leverages both: more than 30 years expertise in test handling and a next-generation architecture," said Günther Jeserer, Vice President Gravity and Pick & Place Products.

Investigation on the Assembly Process for m03015 and a Brief Look at m0201 Components

11/14/2018 | David Geiger, Robert Pennings, and Jane Feng, Flex
Components continue to shrink in the SMT world, and the next evolution of passive components includes m03015 (009005) and m0201 (008004). The m03015 and the m0201 components will see primary adoption in products that require further miniaturization, which would be SiPs. These modules would then be assembled into products through attachment, another assembly, or via other interconnect methods. This article explores the development of an assembly process (SMT only) for the m03015 component.
