The 950 Series test fixture is a versatile benchtop fixture to test with the MT Century and Manual Switch Box. Mini cards and extended mini cards with test sockets are the standard arrangements of the 950 Series. The test fixture interfaces to the MT Century or Manual Switch Box via one Yamaichi 100-pin cable. The 950 Series is capable of testing topside and backside, including micro-probing, backside emission microscopy, and heated sockets for temperature testing. There are also versions of the 950 Series supporting 96 or 100 pins and other configurations for backside analysis are available
Topside and Backside of 950 Series Test Fixture
The 950 Series’ mini cards are small 96-pin daughter cards that hold a test socket with optional heated capabilities. The mini card interfaces the 950 Series base through a pogo pin block. The mini cards are also customizable to fit your device and test needs.
The 950 Series base comes with or without the heater interface components. However, unequipped bases may not be upgradable for heated capabilities. Unlike heated mini cards, heated socket lids connect directly to the temperature controller and do not require a heated 950 Series base.

Compatibility with the MultiTrace and MegaTrace is possible with adapters that allow the use of the Yamaichi 100-pin cables.
The 950 Series’ low profile is highly compact and easily fits:
- Under a microscope
