An enhanced Soak Booster option has been added to Multitest’s MT9928 tri-temp handler. It cuts down the soak time by up to 50%. With this development Multitest is responding to the market need for temperature testing of large devices where soak time closely correlates with throughput, and as a result, impacts the cost of test.
High-volume production test of automotive devices is one market that benefits from this enhanced Soak Booster capability.
Whereas the industry standard for gravity handling is thermal heat transfer by radiation from track to device, Soak Booster uses convection as transfer principle.
The temperature controlled air is blown directly to the device.
The option is available for SO packages down to 300 mil in size.
