The MultiTrace curve tracer is a mid-sized benchtop model supporting pin counts from 216-625 pins and includes the PGA-625 fixture as a standard interface. It utilizes the same MTForms softwareapplications and boasts an economic footprint for benchtop testing environment. Every MultiTrace is shipped with an LCD monitor, industrial controller running the MultiTrace Software Suite, and the most recent Windows version.
The MultiTrace is an automated curve trace system used for unpowered and powered curve tracing, multiple testing configurations and capabilities. See the curve trace configuration page to learn more about our configurations.

Test Fixtures & DUT Boards for MultiTrace
RTI builds a substantial number of DUT boards and designs supporting the MultiTrace. These board solutions are based on the classic MultiTrace test fixtures: the PGA-625 and Verifier board test fixture box.
MultiTrace Test Fixtures
Custom test fixture options are available. The standard PGA-625 fixture is typically used with the MultiTrace.
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.
