Machine vision equipment maker Intekplus will conduct equipment tests with two outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) companies.
One is an OSAT company in the US and another is in China.
The equipment being tested is surface equipment used in during the back-end process for semiconductors.
It is used to check for defects on chips that have finished packaging before they are shipped.
With the Chinese OSAT company, the pair’s test has progressed substantially __ the demo test is done and the quality test is expected to be completed within the second half of the year.
With the US OSAT company, Intekplus is conducting the sample test.
A sample test is the first step of product testing with a customer __ it is followed by a demo test and then a quality test.
Meanwhile, Intekplus has recently supplied an inspection kit to a major Chinese printed circuit board maker.
Intekplus is an exclusive supplier inspection kit to Intel, having been named an official supplier in 2018. It replaced KLA as the sole supplier of optical inspection kits to the US chip giant.
