August 8, 2012 -- Multitest, semiconductor test equipment supplier, added a 2D code reader option to its MT2168 pick-and-place test handler, for package test customers that require 100% device traceability and lot integrity.
The 2D code reader identifies each package, using the package ID to verify the data with the lot information. The handler can be given lot information by manual HMI input or via a scanned bar code.
Additionally, the ID of each device under test (DUT) can be read by the tester via RS232 or IEEE interface. Using the package ID, the test result can be unambiguously assigned to the DUT ID.
This 2D code reader is available as option for the MT2168 and can be retrofitted in the field.
Multitest already has received orders for MT2168 test handlers that include this new option.
Multitest is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of test equipment for semiconductors. Multitest markets test handlers, contactors and ATE printed circuit boards. Learn more at www.multitest.com
