Optimal contactor for high-end digital applications

Paul Boughton

Multitest, a designer and manufacturer of final test handlers, contactors and load boards used by integrated device manufacturers (IDMs) and final test subcontractors worldwide, recently launched the newest member of the Quad Tech contactor family: the Triton contactor for high-end digital applications.   

The Triton responds to the dedicated needs of these digital applications, which include servers, computers, mobile smartphones, digital TV and graphics.

Typically, they feature large array packages, highly integrated devices with high I/O count and many high-speed differential I/Os. Current existing solutions face several issues: contactor bowing, limited compliance and test handler force limitations.    

The Triton solves these challenges by offering  an enhanced compliance window to accommodate stack height variations, an optimized force to support large BGAs and LGAs, and multisite package test. With up to 20 GHz differential bandwidth, it is ready for the next generation of digital devices.   

The design of the Triton contactor leverages the advantages of the unique Multitest Quad Tech architecture for high-end digital applications.   

The Triton has already been successfully evaluated at high-volume production and Multitest has received several reorders due to the system’s convincing and proven performance.
