CST to unveil the SP3000 DDR3 BGA Chip tester at Computex Show

Monday, May 17, 2010



CST Inc., a 28 years privately owned memory tester company, announces its New SP3000-DDR3 CHIP tester today to test the New DDR3-1333/1066/800 memory chips. This makes it the first low cost real time tester for screening regular DDR3 DRAM as well as UTT DRAMs. The Key feature of the Pogo Pin Tester is its ability to test DDR3 BGA Chips without Solder Balls.


“With the new DDR3 chips in the many different BGA (Ball Grid Array) packages, 20 sets of test sockets would have been required. It would make it cost prohibited” said York Shen , CST China  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 DDR3 Chip POGO Pin 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-DDR3-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-DDR3 POGO Pin Chip Adapter test sockets are fully buffered and isolated for “no confuse” fault detection.

The new “SP3000 DDR3 POGO PIN Chip” tester provides added troubleshoot capability for the present and future DDR3 memories at affordable prices. It is targeted for the memory module manufacturers. 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-DDR3 BGA CHIP POGO PIN CHIP tester is available in June 2010 and price starts at U$8000
