EV Group (EVG) signs contract with SemiProbe for worldwide distribution of Wafer Probing Systems

(PresseBox) (Schärding, ) EV Group (EVG), a leading supplier of waferbonding and lithography equipment for the advanced packaging, MEMS and semiconductor markets, announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with SemiProbe a leading supplier of wafer level probing systems. As a global distributor for SemiProbe, this agreement enables EV Group to offer SemiProbe´s family of manual, semiautomatic and fully automatic probing systems to their customers in combination with EVG process equipment.

"The SemiProbe probing family allows EVG to have a Test Tool to probe all bonded wafers either post bond (SemiProbe stand alone prober) or pre and post bond (integrated in EVG systems). This approach allows 24/7 production with minimum intervention," said Thomas Wagenleitner, Product Manager from EV Group.

The SemiProbe probe systems meet a wide variety of applications from labs to high volume production. Customers have the option of purchasing a stand alone probe system or a turn key, application specific probing/testing solution. SemiProbe provides several new solutions ranging from engineering probe systems to “Known Good Die systems” to small footprint and high throughput production systems. SemiProbe also offers the world’s first “PROBE SYSTEM FOR LIFE” (PSL) family of probers that provide customers with a perpetual upgrade path from manual to automatic. The PSL provides the customer with significant capital equipment savings by allowing them to purchase what they need and can afford now while allowing them to field upgrade later as their needs change.

"Partnering with EVG is an opportunity to expand SemiProbe into new global markets that involve integrated process and test solutions," said Denis Place, CEO of SemiProbe. "Our probe systems are state of the art and are supplementary to EVG Bonding and alignment process systems," he added.

EV Group extends its technology and market leadership by offering complementary partner products, giving our customers a single source to meet all their wafer processing needs.
