Aehr Test Systems Announces FOX(TM)-1 WaferPak(TM) Contactor And System Upgrade Orders

FREMONT, Calif., March 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aehr Test Systems (Nasdaq:AEHR), a worldwide supplier of semiconductor test and burn-in equipment, announced today that it has received over $2 million in additional orders for FOX-1 WaferPak contactors and system upgrades from a leading flash memory manufacturer.

"We are pleased with these follow-on orders," said Carl Buck, vice president of marketing at Aehr Test Systems. "We believe that this is an indication of our customer's need to increase capacity for testing new flash memories being developed or already introduced into the market. The FOX-1 system, using a WaferPak contactor, allows parallel testing of thousands of die on a 300mm wafer with only a single touchdown. We believe that these follow-on WaferPak contactor and system upgrade purchases show that the FOX-1 full-wafer test technology reduces the cost of wafer sort test for this customer."

The FOX-1 full wafer parallel test system, a member of the FOX family of full wafer contact systems, is most effective for test and short burn-in applications. Other members of Aehr Test's FOX family of products are focused on long-duration full wafer burn-in and test of products such as automotive ICs, DRAMs and VCSELs (laser diodes).
