The Model 1038 was developed for use with the cost effective Silicon Motion Chorus SD/MMC tester. "Many of our current customers were already using Silicon Motion's Chorus tester and had asked us to automate the process for them. That was the genesis of our Model 1038," said John Meadows, Able Design President and Chief Engineer. Up to 8 devices can be tested simultaneously. Input and output hoppers have capacities of up to 100 SD/MMC devices each. Passing devices are up stacked to the output hopper at the right and devices that failed are rejected and slid off a chute into a reject bin. The Able Design Model 1038 Automated Handler was also designed to work with the Model 1052 Automated SD/MMC Label Applicator. Just remove the output hopper full of good devices from the M1038 and insert it into the M1052 hopper receptacle and start labeling. The hopper systems allows customers to easily move devices from testing and straight into labeling with batches of up to 100 devices. "Once again, we listened to our customers and simplified their process. Our customers can now move easily from testing product to labeling product," said John Meadows.
