Geotest Highlights New Capabilities of TS-900 PXI System

July 14, 2012. Geotest at Semicon West highlighted the expanded capabilities of its TS-900 platform, which now offers a a new manipulator option and automated-handler-compatible receiver. The Reid-Ashman OM1069 manipulator is designed specifically for the TS-900 and allows precise positioning and flexibility for interfacing to automated probers and device handlers used for production testing of semiconductor devices. The manipulator's spring-loaded design allows for easy alignment and docking to handlers—eliminating the need for a complex receiver interface.

“By adding this configuration option to the TS-900, we are able to address a wider range of applications and production test requirements for our customers,” said Loofie Gutterman, president of Geotest. “Since the introduction of the TS-900 a year ago, we have been presented with a wide range of opportunities and with the addition of this option, our customers now have the option to leverage the TS-900 not only for bench-top applications but also for automated handler applications.”

The TS-900 also features a new handler-compatible receiver, which offers the flexibility to interface to virtually any device handler. In addition, fixture compatibility is maintained with the TS-900's current receiver, allowing users to interchange load boards between the screw down and slide receiver configurations.
