R&D Altanova Chooses Ultra-Precision atg S3-8 - Flying Probe Technology for High-Speed Electrical Test of Substrate Products

Reading time ( words)

atg Luther & Maelzer GmbH, confirms delivery of high-speed bare board testing technology to R&D Altanova, the leading provider of automated test equipment interface boards for the semiconductor test market.

With the company’s continuous development and achievements in the area of super fine line/fine pitch processes, the high accuracy S3-8, 8 head, double-sided, high speed, flying probe test system represents the latest addition to R&D Altanova’s test department. According to Seyed Paransun, President & CEO of R&D Altanova, “this recent atg acquisition helps advance R&D Altanova’s strategy of developing the most advanced PCB technologies for the semiconductor test market by enabling our engineering teams to test the most challenging current and future PCB designs.”

atg’s S3-8 is able to test pad sizes down to 10 micron and is capable of testing boards with a test area up to 350 mm x 310 mm / 13.8” x 12.2”. The S3-8 eliminates limitations due to test point density or fine-pitch contacts and also features embedded component test. In addition to the fast test speed of up to 140 measurements/second, the S3-8 provides positional placement resolution of ± 0.1 µm / ± 0.004 mil, and a repeatable accuracy of ± 1.5 µm / ± 0.06 mil.
