Centaur Bottom Loading Universal SOC Interface < back to Centaur Modular Interface
Advanced Geometry Reduces Your Test Costs
The signal modules in a conventional interface are arranged in a radial pattern. While this works fine for most testers, this standard radial pattern is not an ideal match with the special rectangular format used in SOC testers, such as the Agilent 93000, the Teradyne FLEX family, and the Credence Sapphire.
Until now, this format mismatch forced you to turn to a very costly solution: using a Blind and Buried Via PIB instead of a regular PIB to make the connection between the interface and your SOC tester.
You no longer have to take this costly step. In most applications, the new Centaur Universal SOC Interface gets rid of this expensive Blind and Buried Via PIB. The Centaurs Transpar signal modules have been re-oriented for compatibility with the SOC testers rectangular format, allowing the use of a far less expensive, regular PIB during testing.
Flexibility Makes Your Test Floor More Efficient
You will especially like the fact that this one interface works with such a broad range of SOC testers. On most test floors, youll be able to use one probe card design for all your SOC testers. Thats important, because it simplifies test floor activity and that increases productivity.
Modularity Lowers Your Acquisition and Upgrade Costs
The Centaurs Universal SOC Interfaces modular format makes the interface less expensive to acquire, because you buy only the capability you need at the time of purchase. As your needs change, you can economically upgrade the Centaur interface in modular steps, to keep pace with your evolving tester configurations and capabilities.
