2 Accuracy, Repeatability, and Correlation Accuracy is a major concern for mixed-signal test engineers. It is very easy to get an answer from a mixed-signal ATE tester that is simply incorrect. Inaccurate answers are caused by a bewildering number of problems. Electromagnetic interference, improperly calibrated instruments, improperly ranged instruments, and measurements made under incorrect test conditions can all lead to inaccurate test results. Repeatability is the ability of the test equipment and test program to give the same answer multiple times.

It is also common to find that two supposedly identical testers or DIB boards give different answers or that the same tester gives different answers from day to day. These problems frequently result from obscure hardware or software errors that may take days to isolate. Correlation efforts can represent a major portion of the time spent debugging a test program. 3 Electromechanical Fixturing Challenges The test head and DIB board must ultimately make contact to the DUT through the handler or prober.

The prober informs the tester when it has placed each new die against the probes of the probe card. The ATE tester then executes a series of electrical tests on the die before instructing the prober to move to the next die. The handshaking between tester and prober insures that the tester only begins testing when a die is in position and that the prober does not move the wafer in midtest. 12 shows a wafer prober and closeup views of a probe card and its probe tips. 3 Handlers Handlers are used to manipulate packaged devices in much the same way that probers are used to manipulate wafers.
