Remote docking fixtures are ideal for failure analysis labs and are an instrumental fault localization tool. Our fixtures offer easy access and allow for testing under microscopes or environmental chambers with their low-profile architecture.
RTI offers cable-based load board interfaces for many popular ATE test heads and provides extended mobility during tests. The remote test head connects to the load board interface using a series of ribbon cables allowing it to be positioned up to 10ft away from the tester, on a bench, or under inspection tools. Our remote docking fixtures are compatible with many systems including Credence D-10 and HiLevel ETS Series. We can create a remote docking fixture for nearly any tester. RTI’s high-speed, controlled impedance cable system comes shielded or wrapped at custom lengths to cover the distance between the ATE test system and remote docking interface. Using a series of mating connectors allows each cable assembly to be easily removed for debugging, service or replacement.
If you have RTI’s curve tracers as your test system, we also provide remote docking options for all systems. Our most popular curve tracer is the MultiTrace which tests up to 625 pins with the typical PGA interface or 1152 pins with the Octopogo interface. The Octopogo interface is also compatible with various test sockets, fixtures, cables, and connectors, giving you broad abilities to test small or large devices, packages, or units.
We are continuously adding new solutions, so please call to see if we have already designed an interface solution for your specific requirement. If you are looking for a fixture that is not mentioned here just let us know and we will work with you to build an interface for your equipment.
