SEMI CAST Releases Test Cell Docking and Mounting Terminology Guide
The Collaborative Alliance for Semiconductor Test (CAST), a SEMI Special Interest Group, has released a Docking and Mounting Generic Terminology Guideline document to assist equipment operators, specifiers, service personnel, and other industry stakeholders involved with test cell equipment features, specifications and operations. Developed by the CAST Docking and Handling Work Group, the document defines the generic terminology for all components that are typically found in a standard test cell set-up in final package test including perspectives, orientations and directions.
The Terminology Guide was developed by a diverse group of suppliers, users and other industry professionals to standardize common terminology among manufacturers of test cell equipment and their customers--aiding sales, application and service operations. The well-illustrated document covers test head/manipulator components and motions, test head swing positions, Device Under Test (DUT) positions, including swing and tumble motion definitions.
