The X-Y autoprobing process was developed to eliminate the need to manually probe prototype modules, and to diagnose productionmodules. The goal of the X-Y autoprobing process is to increase the throughput of the L200 functional tester by decreasingthe average diagnostic time, through automatic control of the probe's movement and positioning. The X-Y autoprobing systemsinstalled have demonstrated that the amount of time to probe manually can be reduced by a factor of ten.
