2018 was a year of solid growth for the semiconductor industry both in volume and sales. This growth is challenging the industry to explore how to lower the cost of test and better utilize existing resources to address new and complex test requirements that may incorporate MEMS, digital, RF, and 5G technologies.

In 2018 we designed a creative and cost-effective solution for testing MEMS-based Metal-Oxide (MOX) gas sensors, delivering a compact test system that met and exceeded the complex requirements of these devices at a cost that was 80% less than a traditional "big-iron" test system, offering ease of use and scalability from the engineering lab to high-volume production test.

From PXI instrumentation products like our innovative GX3104 Source Measure Unit to compact, integrated semiconductor test solutions including the TS-900 Series and the MTEK (Marvin Test Expansion Kit), our suite of hardware and software for semiconductor test applications is helping customers to drive down the cost of test for current needs as well as offering flexible and scalable solutions for future test requirements.

We look forward to working closely with our semiconductor customers in 2019 and beyond, offering PXI-based test solutions that provide value and flexibility for OEMs, OSATs, and IDMs.
