BEAVERTON, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- Cascade Microtech, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCD), a leading supplier of solutions that enable precision measurements of integrated circuits at the wafer level, today announced that the Company has been named winner of the American Technology Award (ATA) in the category of Semiconductors & Electronic Components for its APS200TESLA power electronics wafer probe solution. The American Technology Awards represent outstanding achievement, with winning products that exemplify the ″Best Of″ the United States technology sector.
Cascade Microtech is a worldwide leader in the design, development and manufacture of engineering probe stations and analytical probes used in research and development to perform precise electrical measurements, or electrical metrology, on increasingly complex and high-speed devices in order to assure quality and reliability, reduce costly redesigns, accelerate time-to-market and improve chip fabrication processes. Combining the proven capabilities of its Tesla power device characterization system for the lab with its BlueRay production automation technology, the Company introduced APS200TESLA -- the industry's first production probing system dedicated to on-wafer test of power electronics devices. By probing devices directly at the wafer level, true characterization data of each device can be delivered before dicing and packaging processes. The APS200TESLA introduced a new methodology to the industry that was not possible before, to help device manufacturers to deliver a higher volume of devices to the market faster with shorter lead ramps and wafer-level process control, while lowering the overall cost.
Device manufacturers typically test power electronics devices by modifying their existing test equipment in house. Testing these devices with such unreliable equipment risks destroying expensive wafers and equipment with high-voltage charges, and it exposes operators to high-voltage hazards. The APS200TESLA is specifically designed and built to test these devices at extremely high-current/voltage conditions. Its auto-discharging function protects DUTs and instruments from high-voltage charges, and provides a certified safe working environment for operators.
"It is truly an honor to win this national technology award recognizing our contributions to the advancement of the semiconductor industry. We take great pride in our technology innovations which address the challenges of emerging markets such as power electronics and LEDs," said Michael Burger, president and CEO of Cascade Microtech, Inc. "The APS200TESLA probe system represents a technology breakthrough that will help our customers keep pace with demands for power electronics devices required for the global drive toward clean power and transportation, while providing unique safety features previously unavailable in the market for testing at high voltages and currents."
Winners of the ATAs are selected based on a thorough evaluation by industry experts and technology leaders. The awards were presented at TechAmerica's first annual American Technology Awards Showcase on May 20th in Washington D.C.
"Technology continues to advance at such a rapid pace, transforming all aspects of business and society. The ATA Awards allow us to highlight the advancements that each of the winners represents as they continue to influence technology development," said Todd Thibodeaux, president and CEO of CompTIA. "We congratulate Cascade Microtech on being a winner for this prestigious award and thank them for their contributions."
