CST launch 800Mhz DDR2 BGA Chip Tester at CES 2007

Friday, January 05, 2007


 5th January, 2007



CST Inc., a 24 years privately owned memory tester company, announces its New SP3000-800Mhz DDR2 CHIP tester today to test the New DDR2-800/667/533/400 memory chips. This makes it the first low cost real time tester for screening regular DDR2 DRAM as well as UTT/ETT DDR2 BGA DRAMs.


“With the new DDR2 chips in the many different BGA (Ball Grid Array) packages, 29 sets of test sockets would have been required. It would make it cost prohibited” said Daniel Tan, CST West Coast marketing manager “CST’s innovative universal test socket practically eliminates the need for multiple socket and allows you to test all different size chips with basically one test socket. Low cost mechanical socket inserts are used to accommodate the different sizes and shapes.



The “SP3000 DDR2 Chip Adapter” is built to work with the CST SP3000 base tester, which allows user to swap inter-changeable DDR2, DDR, SDRAM & DRAM test adapters. With a simple push-button the SP3000-DDR2-Chip tester quickly auto-identify and displays the memory size, clock frequency, and speed of the memory chip. Unlike DIMM shape chip converters that can give uncertain test result, the SP3000-DDR2 Chip Adapter test sockets are fully buffered and isolated for “no confuse” fault detection.

The new “SP3000 DDR2 Chip” tester provides added troubleshoot capability for the present and future DDR2 memories at affordable prices. It is targeted for the manufacturers, computer integrators, memory distributors, and service depots. It is indeed the fastest tester and the easiest to use in its class. An advanced PC software is available for interfacing to a PC. The SP3000-DDR2 Chip tester can also be interfaced to different chip handler for mass volume testing.  


The SP3000-800Mhz DDR2 CHIP tester is available now and is priced at only U$8000.
