TokyoAdvantest Corp. has announced its M6242 dynamic test handler that provides throughput of 42,200 units per hour for high-volume production test of memory devices such as DRAM.
The M6242 supports memory device packages such as BGA and CSP, and its advanced handling capabilities enable a throughput of 42,200 units per hour, which is more than double that of the company's earlier model, the M6241.
It offers highly efficient device transfer, which the company attributes to optimization of the complex arm mechanisms that sort good and bad devices after testing. When combined with Advantest's T5588 test system for high-volume DRAM production, the M6242 enhances productivity and slashes overall test costs, according to the company.
The M6242 enables more precise temperature control, following optimization of mechanisms in the temperature stabilization chamber. Temperature stability improvements mean that precision of the M6242 surpasses that of its predecessor by 25%, with an accuracy of ±1.5°C when set at -10°C to 100°C, resulting in higher overall yields.
Designed for ease of operation, the M6242's large display screen displays a more detailed menu than the conventional M6241. This makes the system easier for the operator to run and contributes to shorter operation times.
