Aehr Receives $23 Million in New Follow-on Orders to Meet Customers' Growing Demand for Wafer Level Test and Burn-in of Silicon Carbide Semiconductor Devices

FREMONT, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 21, 2024 / Aehr Test Systems (NASDAQ:AEHR), a worldwide supplier of semiconductor test and burn-in equipment, today announced it has received new follow-on orders totaling $23 million from existing customers for FOXTM wafer level test and burn-in products to be used for production and engineering qualification needs for wafer level burn-in and screening of their silicon carbide devices. Customer-requested ship dates for these orders range from immediate shipment through the end of Aehr's current fiscal year, which ends May 31, 2024.

The orders include a significant number of FOX WaferPakTM full wafer Contactors for both current design capacity increases as well as new device designs that are expected to drive additional orders in calendar year 2024 and beyond.

FOX WaferPak Contactors are used in conjunction with the company's FOX-NP and FOX-XP wafer level test and burn-in systems to contact 100% of the die on a wafer up to several thousand devices at a time. These proprietary WaferPak designs are specific to a customer's application as well as die layout and unique electrical contact pads. Aehr's FOX systems and WaferPaks are currently being used on wafer sizes ranging from 4", 6", 8" and 12" wafers and can be configured for a wide range of device applications.

Gayn Erickson, President and CEO of Aehr Test Systems, commented, "We are excited to help our customers meet their new design and production capacity needs with our industry-leading lead times and capacity for wafer level stress tests, screening, stabilization, and burn-in.Our proprietary WaferPak Contactors are unique to each end customer's device design and grow with the number of device designs and capacity needed for volume production of those devices. As we have stated in the past, we are able to quickly ship a large quantity of WaferPaks with very short lead times with our increased design resources, optimized supply chain, and manufacturing and test processes. We continue to believe our WaferPak business will grow in absolute revenue and also as a percent of the overall revenue for the company. In addition, we have increased our material availability and manufacturing capacity to shorten lead times on our FOX-NP and FOX-XP test and burn-in systems and automated FOX WaferPak Aligners."

The FOX-XP and FOX-NP systems and proprietary WaferPaks are capable of functional test and burn-in/cycling of silicon carbide and gallium nitride power semiconductors, silicon photonics integrated circuits as well as other optical devices, 2D and 3D sensors, flash memories, magnetic sensors, microcontrollers, and other leading-edge ICs in either wafer form factor before they are assembled into single or multi-die stacked packages, or in singulated die or module form factor.
