atg Luther & Maelzer GmbH introduced its new A8a Automatic Bare Board Flying Probe Test System. The A8a provides the flexibility of flying probe test while delivering high throughput.
To achieve high throughput the key feature of the A8a is a new design dual shuttle system, which reduces the product exchange time to zero seconds. In addition to superior test speed of up to 140 measurements per second the A8a provides innovative load /unload and pass / fail sorting for true automatic „lights-out“ operation.
Typical features such as high accuracy Kelvin 4 wire, embedded component and latent defect test are available as well as a tension clamp set up for flexible products.
atg Luther & Maelzer Sales Director for Europe and responsible product manager, Peter Brandt, highlights: “The A8a is atg-LM’s latest innovation in high performance, high accuracy automatic flying probe testing. The A8a can significantly contribute to the profitability of our customers by combining widest flexibility with high throughput.
