FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 16, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aehr Test Systems (Nasdaq:AEHR), a worldwide supplier of semiconductor test and burn-in equipment, today announced it has received an order for its new Advanced Burn-in and Test System (ABTS) from a leading U.S. military and aerospace customer. The system is configured for production burn-in and test of high pin-count logic devices. "With ABTS systems sold to customers in the U.S., Europe, Japan, China, and Taiwan, this new order demonstrates the success of this highly modular and flexible platform in meeting our customers' diverse burn-in and test requirements around the globe," said Greg Perkins, vice president of worldwide sales and service at Aehr Test Systems. "This production configuration of the ABTS system was chosen for its high 72 burn-in board capacity and its ability to burn-in and test future higher pin-count ASIC and custom logic devices." The ABTS family of products is based on a new hardware and software architecture that is designed to address not only today's devices, but also future devices for many years to come. The ABTS family can test and burn-in memory devices as well as both high and low-power logic devices. The ABTS system can be configured to provide individual device temperature control for devices up to 75W or more and with up to 320 I/O channels. The system uses N+1 redundancy technology for many key components in the system to provide the highest possible system uptime.
