Abstract

Pogo pins playan important role in digital and analog testing, and need replacing in the socket at fixed periods in real production line. Replacing pogo pin is necessary work. Currently, the main method is using tweezers, but this method has some disadvantages, such as using tweezers may cause pogo pin barrel or tip to break. Some issues may occur for this broken pin, causing test yield and OEE loss.

Document Title:   Pogo Pin Pickup Device

Abstract: 

Pogo pins playan important role in digital and analog testing, and need replacing in the socket at fixed periods in real production line. Replacing pogo pin is necessary work.  Currently, the main method is using tweezers, but this method has some disadvantages, such as using tweezers may cause pogo pin barrel or tip to break. Some issues may occur for this broken pin, causing test yield and OEE loss.

Body:  

We have designed a vacuum nozzle pen pick up pogo pin to improve current installing process. Using vacuum generator, we designed a nozzle pen and control system, and can load pogo pins effectively. The new system had some advantages.

1.      Improve installing pogo pin quality, avoid pogo pin break in loading process.

2.      Enhance pogo pin loading efficiency, built new loading methods (vacuum theory).

3.      Improve testing first pass yield and OEE.

4.      It is very conveniently to operate.

Using vacuum generator principle to design brand new nozzle pen and control system, it is using factory compressed air to generator vacuum.  New pen model design to pick up pogo pin, and can install into socket effectively.

The system can support two nozzle pen, switch vacuum generator blow and absorb status to pick up pogo pin and install into socket.
