Aehr Test Systems Announces Shipment of FOX-1P™ Next Generation Single Wafer Test System
FREMONT, Calif., July 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aehr Test Systems (NASDAQ:AEHR), a worldwide supplier of semiconductor test and burn-in equipment, today announced that it has shipped the initial FOX-1P system, its next generation single wafer test system for high volume production and early failure rate (EFR) test, to the initial lead customer for this system.
Gayn Erickson, President and CEO of Aehr Test Systems, commented, “We are very excited to have shipped this initial FOX-1P test system to the customer that we partnered with on its development. Our team did an outstanding job in successfully completing the NRE milestones and we are pleased with its functionality and performance. Due to the thorough pre-shipment qualification testing with the customer, we expect a smooth acceptance at the customer’s site. Shipment of the multiple follow-on production systems already in backlog and in final integration and test on our manufacturing floor is expected within the next quarter.
“We believe the FOX-1P System, with more than 16,000 Universal Channels, provides more test resources than any other automated test equipment system on the market. This enables a single touchdown test of many of the most complex wafers. We see this system as highly differentiated from competitive alternatives for non-volatile memory wafer test and also for testing embedded memories and microcontrollers. Our new FOX-1P system is well positioned to address emerging test challenges by lowering the cost of test, especially for devices using Design for Test (DFT) methodologies, and we believe the FOX-1P system will significantly expand our served available market moving forward.”
