This paper presents a novel method for detecting test errors in radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) autotest-equipment (ATE) caused by electromagnetic interferences. A sensor for measuring ambient electromagnetic (EM) signals was used to determine whether interference was the cause of the reported testing error. Upon detecting a testing error, a retest procedure was actuated to recover the testing error and to improve yield loss. For theoretical validation, Monte Carlo procedure was applied in a "source-path- victim" model to simulate the effect of electromagnetic interference (EMI) on RFIC measurement. Finally, a four-element dual-band antenna array design printed onto an ATE load board is proposed. Both the numerical and measurement results validate the effectiveness of the proposed method in reducing testing errors caused by interference. © 2011 IEEE.

An improved structure of a burn-in oven includes a housing, a loading support, a cooling-fan assembly, and a motor-fan assembly. A circuit-board-space and an exhaust channel are defined inside of the housing, wherein the exhaust channel is provided with a plurality of venting holes such that the circuit-board-space and the exhaust channel are communicated with each other through the venting holes. The loading support is disposed in the circuit-board-space for loading a plurality of circuit boards. The cooling-fan assembly is arranged at one side of the loading support and beside the exhaust channel. The motor-fan assembly is arranged at the exhaust channel. Thereby, a phenomenon of heat accumulation locally at a back panel side of the oven can be improved so as to enhance cooling effect of the oven, let alone the number of fans installed on the oven can be decreased.

A comparison device for comparing test pattern files of a wafer tester includes a storage unit and a processing unit. The comparison device stores a first to-be-compared file and a second to-be-compared file into the storage unit. The first to-be-compared file and the second to-be-compared file are text files respectively. The processing unit reads the first to-be-compared file and the second to-be-compared file from the storage unit to process and executes comparison operation, so as to generate a comparison result. The comparison operation is to compare the words in a first section of the first to-be-compared file with the words in a second section of the second to-be-compared file in a one-to-one manner.

The present invention relates to a hard and wear-resisting probe and manufacturing method thereof, and particularly relates to a hard and wear-resisting probe comprising tungsten steel (WC) and manufacturing method thereof. This hard and wear-resisting probe is substantially made of a tungsten steel with high hardness and wear resistance so that the probe is difficult to be worn and the lifetime of the probe is longer. Furthermore, the frequencies for changing the probe and the cost of testing are reduced, and the testing efficiency can be improved.
