Abstract

This is an interface apparatus tool capable of precisely positioning an element or support surface to a reference location for cooperation with an associated apparatus for a mechanical manipulation operation. The apparatus is particularly adapted to feed semiconductor devices to a probe placement head of a positioning tool which locates the semiconductor devices on a substrate in preparation for a joining operation.
