RoodMicrotec and AEM announce strategic cooperation in the Central European market

Deventer, December 21, 2021 – RoodMicrotec N.V., a leading independent company for semiconductors supply and quality services, and AEM, a global leader in semiconductor test and handling, today announce a collaboration that will open doors for AEM’s Afore Wafer Level Test Solutions engineering team to install and exhibit the AIOLOS Wafer Level Test Handlers at the RoodMicrotec facility in Nördlingen. With this handler, RoodMicrotec will be able to offer its customers additional capabilities in the fast-growing markets of sensor and wafer-frame testing.

The AIOLOS allows test and calibration of:

  • Pressure sensors such as those used in cell phones and other handheld devices
  • Gas and humidity sensors, i. e. for air quality monitoring
  • Components that require pressure or vacuum

This equipment is also set up for 200 mm wafer frame-probing of a wide range of semiconductor devices.

As a pioneer in developing and deploying application-specific test solutions for MEMS devices, AEM’s Afore Wafer Level Test product range offers integrated wafer level test and calibration solutions for development, wafer sort, and final test.

Through this partnership, AEM will have a broader opportunity to showcase its system demonstrations to customers in Central Europe.

“This collaboration provides easier access to our system application and test capabilities to the Central European MEMS community”, says Michael Siebert, AEM’s Director of Sales & Marketing.

For RoodMicrotec, this partnership will not only extend its business areas, but also its testing capabilities.

Jan de Koning Gans, Managing Director of RoodMicrotec GmbH says: “With this cooperation, we will expand our test capabilities for sensor products in these fast-growing markets and application segments. Furthermore, it grants our customers access to a flexible solution for testing their products. For companies that would not have sufficient volumes to justify having their own equipment, RoodMicrotec provides access to the test solution needed, without the need to invest.”
