Change kits allow a single handler to support a variety of IC packaging.
This custom-designed, swappable tool (change kit), which is part of the handler, is for the customer whose devices come in an array of shapes and sizes. It allows a handler to be used flexibly with a variety of devices, instead of having to be dedicated to one specific device type.
