Maximize Yield. Minimize Cost.

inTEST’s Centaur is a state-of-the-art, modular interface that delivers outstanding signal fidelity, customized test performance, and affordability.

Its unique mix of select, standardized components and flexible configuration options evolves over time to keep pace with your changing test requirements — and keeps you within budget.


Keeping Up with the Future

The Centaur gives you the maximum mechanical and electrical flexibility possible today in a wafer-sort interface. It lets you precisely and economically expand and upgrade your signal path as tester performance changes over time:
  • Economical Purchase.
    Initial purchase is more affordable because you buy only the capability you need right now.

  • Pin Count Expansion.
    As tester pin count increases, you can increase the number of signal modules without changing hardware.

  • Test Instrument Upgrade.
    If you add more test instruments (an Arbitrary Waveform Generator, for example), simply add the appropriate Transpar Signal Module and you’re ready to test – again, without changing any hardware.

  • Unexcelled Signal Fidelity.
    Unique design of the Centaur’s TransparSignal Module virtually eliminates frequency-dependent dielectric losses, making it transparent to your test signals.

  • Maximum Availability.
    The Centaur’s Transpar Signal Modules are designed for quick, easy pin replacement – requiring no special tools – right at the testing station. You can easily replace an entire signal module, so your test floor is immediately back up and running
  • Extraordinary Flexibility.
    The Centaur interface gives you a wide range of signal module options and probe card form factors, including readiness for RF customization (such as blind-mate, semi-rigid interconnect). And, of course, you always have the option of total interface customization with inTEST.
