DUT Boards for MultiTrace

RTI builds a substantial number of DUT boards and designs supporting the MultiTrace system. These solutions are based off the classic MultiTrace test fixtures: the PGA-625 and Verifier board test fixture box.

MultiTrace Test Fixtures

Custom test fixture options are available.

Standard fixture with the MultiTrace system for 30 years. Basic features include a PGA ZIF socket with a 25x25 array for a maximum of 625 pins. A 1 to 1 Make-Break jumper area allows external connections to pins under test or isolate pins from the test system. Lower pin count systems depopulate socket in predictable ways; RTI supports a wide range of DUT boards for this fixture. Remote extension available for interface.

For users supporting ESD testing, this option offers low-cost and convenience of needing one DUT board for both test systems. Verifier 256 or 512 pin DUT boards are compatible.

MultiTrace DUT Boards

Depending on the fixture box you choose, DUT boards and compatibility vary. Below are the various options supporting the different fixtures.

“Side by side” DUT board supports up to 625 pins. This style has the socket and PGA array adjacent to each other, and is often used with BGA DUT boards.

Programming adapters generally have a DIP-48 footprint and are used in programming device programmers. Pins can be scrambled or numbered the same as the DUT.

Octopogo™ DUT boards connect by remote interface via cables. Compatible with all fixtures and sockets made by RTI.

950 Series can be used if mini cards are required for testing but this setup is better suited for the MT Century because of its limited pin count (up to 100 pins)

Remote docking interfaces are compatible with the PGA-625. Custom DUT boards are available.

Fixture box is compatible with Verifier style ESD DUT boards with 256 or 512 pin formats.
