    Who Uses the MultiTrace

       Failure Analysis Engineers – Use the curve tracing
        capabilities to characterize electrically failed devices before any
        destructive processes are attempted

       Reliability Engineers – Use the Latch Up testing capabilities to
        find designs susceptible to this particular failure mode. They
        also use it in conjunction with ESD test systems to find devices
        damaged by ESD

       Package Design Engineers – Use the precision resistance
        measuring software to characterize contact resistance or new
        IC package designs

        RTI can supply any type of socket or DUT board for testing any device on the
         MultiTrace system
        Adapters are available for any footprint but lead time needs to be accounted for
         when preparing for new devices 4-8 weeks is typical
        The Remote Test Head option allows you to place the device under a
         microscope for fault localization techniques like emission microscopy (EMMI)
        Compatibility Adapters can be made to convert any other adapter footprint to be
         compatible with the MultiTrace. For example; IDC and RTI fixture cards

     Test Coverage.

        Curve Tracing will discover any parametric damage
         to the pins of any device of any technology
        Any electrical damage to the pins on the device will be found
        Find damage from ESD, EOS, mechanical opens and shorts
        Electrical damage to the core of the device may be found
         as supply current anomalies. Many damaged pins also
         show up as high supply current
        Some Functional-Only Failures in the core of the device are
         undetectable with curve tracing.
