Test head Prober In addition to providing a temporary connection to the DUT, handlers are also responsible for sorting the good DUTs from the bad ones based on test results from the ATE tester. Some handlers also provide a controlled thermal chamber where devices are allowed to “soak” for a few minutes so they can either be cooled or heated before testing. Since many electrical parameters shift with temperature, this is an important handler feature. 4 E-Beam Probers Electron beam probers, or e-beam probers as they are often called, are used to probe internal device signals while the device is being stimulated by the tester.

During a mixed-signal test, the repeating frame vectors must be combined with the nonrepeating digital signal sample information to form a repetitive sampling loop. Combining the digital frame vectors with digital signal data, a long sequence of waveform samples can be sent to or captured from the DUT with a very short digital frame pattern. In effect, the sampling frame results in a type of data compression that minimizes the amount of vector memory needed for the tester’s digital subsystem. Looping frames are commonly used when testing DACs and ADCs.

Either a customer requests a particular type of product to fill a specific requirement, or a marketing organization realizes an opportunity to produce a product that the market needs. In either case, systems engineers help define the technical requirements of the new product so that it will operate correctly in the endequipment application. The systems engineers are responsible for defining and documenting the customer’s requirements so that the rest of the engineering team can design the product and successfully release it to production.
