Reading time ( words)

Summit Interconnect has installed an atg A7a, an eight-head, double-sided, high-speed auto-load/unload system that provides true “lights-out” operation, at its Orange, California facility.

"The atg A7a will be our highest-speed tester yet, and with the auto-load/unload feature, it will significantly improve productivity on large jobs," said Summit Orange VP and General Manager Jack Evans.

The atg A7a auto-load/unload testers utilize eight flying probe test heads, multiple optical recognition systems, and a wide variety of advanced, high-speed electrical test measurement techniques to electrically test all types of PCBs for continuity and isolation. Board sizes of 24” x 21" or larger with small pad/fine-pitch technology can be tested quickly and easily. Special options, such as, 4-wire Kelvin tests, hi-pot test, latent defect test, and others can be provided.
