To support the mass production of silicon carbide MOSFETs for electric cars, trucks, and train traction inverter modules, Aehr Test Systems has announced a new silicon carbide semiconductor customer and an initial order for a FOX-XP™ multi-wafer test and burn-in system, several WaferPak™ Contactors, a WaferPak Aligner, and a high-volume production support kit. Within the next two quarters, the turnkey system, which consists of the FOX-XP, WaferPak Contactors, and WaferPak Aligner, is anticipated to ship.
Additionally, Aehr and this new customer have agreed to a long-term supply arrangement that covers FOX-XP systems, WaferPaks, WaferPak Aligners, and maintenance. This new client is a multinational industrial corporation that produces semiconductors, especially power semiconductors. The FOX-XP system is capable of functional testing and burn-in/cycling of integrated devices such as silicon carbide (SiC) power devices, silicon photonics as well as other optical devices, 2D and 3D sensors, flash memories, gallium nitride (GaN), magnetic sensors, microcontrollers, and other cutting-edge ICs in either wafer form factor, or with multiple DiePak™ Carriers (singular die/module test) configurations.
