(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
An automatic test equipment (ATE) PCB (a.k.a. a test board) is at the heart of all major test activities targeted at verifying a specific semiconductor chip's functionality.
Semiconductor chip technology has become so advanced that testing these highly complex devices must be performed effectively to ensure high reliability and functionality. This allows chipmakers to convey to their OEM customers their highest confidences that their products are of the foremost quality and have been verified to operate according to their specifications.
An automatic test equipment printed circuit board, or ATE PCB -- serving as an interface to a large test system -- is at the heart of all major test activities to verify a specific chip's functionality.
