Abstract

Integrated circuit testers and handlers must be mechanically and electrically interfaced in order to per- form their intended functions. The handler presents integrated circuits to a test site and removes tested parts therefrom to an appropriate bin or storage area. The tester performs electrical tests on the part, usually referred to as the device under test, or DUT, which currently occupies the test sight.
