According to Multitest, MEMS oscillators are considered to be a favourable alternative to the long-established, quartz crystal oscillator technology. The company stated that one substantial advantage of the technology is that packaging and test is very similar to standard IC processes. Economy of scale can be achieved, leading to favourable cost structure, price and availability, noted Multitest.

The Test Handler MT9928 has been deployed for calibrating and trimming MEMS oscillators at various customers. All systems were delivered as full Plug&Yield solutions, including the Multitest conversion kit, Multitest socket and Multitest load board. All typical packages sizes of MEMS oscillators are supported (2 x 2.5, 2.5 x 3.2, 3.2 x 5, 5 x 7 and others on request).

The MT9928 Gravity Feed Handler ensures the required temperature accuracy (up to ±0.2°K), but also provides high throughput and low cost of test. This way, the test handler fully supports the favourable cost structure.

The MT9928 xm is a well-established, user-friendly and easy to maintain platform, stated the company. Additionally, the Multitest Plug&Yield program delivers a fully-integrated solution with all components harmonized, configured and finally, checked at system level. Therefore, the MT9928 is also geared for companies that are not overly familiar with the standard IC test process.
