“First quarter Semiconductor Test orders were the highest in nearly four years driving a 55% increase in overall company orders,” said CEO and President Mark Jagiela. “UltraFLEX and J750 products recorded strong demand for applications processor and microcontroller test driven primarily by mobile end markets. Our flexible manufacturing capability is designed to respond to this type of order surge and we are ramping second quarter production to meet the increasing demand. Meanwhile, although Wireless Test orders more than tripled from the Q4 trough, near term visibility remains limited with a more cautious outlook from customers."
