Aehr Test Systems Receives Follow-on FOX(TM) Order From a Major IC Manufacturer
4th October, 2007
Aehr Test Systems (Nasdaq: AEHR), a leading supplier of semiconductor test and burn-in equipment, today announced it has received a repeat order from a leading memory IC manufacturer totaling over $13 million for its FOX-1 full wafer parallel test systems. The systems are scheduled to ship during fiscal year 2008.
"This is yet another significant order for multiple FOX-1 systems from this worldwide leader in providing innovative memory devices," said Greg Perkins, vice president of worldwide sales and service at Aehr Test Systems. "The unique feature of these systems is that they are configured to do single touchdown, full wafer contact testing of 300mm wafers. This customer has ordered FOX-1 systems for multiple production locations, which we believe demonstrates the customer's confidence in Aehr Test's full wafer technology, as well as our market leadership in this segment."
The FOX-1 full wafer parallel test system, a member of the FOX family of full wafer contact systems, is designed to test an entire wafer of IC devices in a single touchdown or to be utilized for short burn-in and test applications. This innovative solution combines full wafer contact, massively parallel test and Design For Test (DFT) technologies. Other members of Aehr Test's FOX family of products such as the FOX-14 and FOX-V, are focused on long-duration full wafer burn-in and test of products such as automotive ICs, DRAMs and VCSELs (laser diodes).
