Advantest adds module and system test with Astronics business buy
Advantest is to buy the commercial Semiconductor System Level Test business from US aerospace supplier Astronics for $185m, plus an earn-out payment of up to $30 million based on certain performance milestones.

The chip and module Test Systems business complements Advantest’s existing suite of automated test equipment (ATE) and broadens it’s position in system level test.

“We will be able to offer stronger solutions to our diversified customer base and continue to add significant customer value in an evolving semiconductor value chain by further enriching and expanding our suite of test and measurement solutions,” said Yoshiaki Yoshida, Advantest President and Chief Executive Officer. "With this acquisition, Advantest will benefit greatly from Test Systems’ technology development capabilities, technical talent and recent customer successes in this emerging segment of test. The acquisition will allow us to better and more timely respond to the growing needs of our semiconductor customers, and we believe Test Systems will benefit greatly from Advantest’s global footprint, customer base and resources."

The Test Systems business in Irvine, California, will become a fully owned subsidiary of Advantest America as Advantest Test Solutions. It developed a module and sub-system tester, the  ATS 5034 System-Level Test (SLT) Platform (above) that can perform 100% testing on up to 396 DUTs simultaneously to achieve a throughput volume of up to 5,000 units per hour (UPH).
