Abstract

Figure I below shows a cross section of a known track for transporting semiconductor components, par- ticulary in a handler for a machine used at a final test stage of the component packaging process. The track transports only one type of package. Hence, it is desir- able, therefore, to have a track for transporting a var- ety of different types of packages to allow the machines at the final test stage to be used to test semi- conductor components which are packaged in a variety of different types of packages. In particular, such a track would be useful when rapid prototyping of new products to generate samples; pilot production runs on existing equipment; sharing of equipment allowing a more flexible and more productive production facility; and reliability testing of cycle time reduction.
