Boston Semi Equipment Creates Industry’s Largest Independent ATE Organization

BURLINGTON, Mass. – October 1, 2014 – Boston Semi Equipment LLC (BSE) today announced it has combined all of its automated test equipment (ATE) businesses under the Boston Semi Equipment brand name. Effective immediately, the Test Advantage Hardware and MVTS Technologies businesses will operate using the Boston Semi Equipment name. This follows the company’s announcement in July that it was integrating all sales and service for ATE, Prober and Test Handler products into the Boston Semi Equipment field sales organization.

Boston Semi Equipment has now built an organization of tester, handler and prober integration specialists to address the semiconductor industry’s need for a vendor-independent test cell solution provider. BSE can provide equipment configured to the customer’s exact requirements, deliver a complete test cell solution across all tester platforms fully utilizing the original OEM technology, and provide service and support to keep ATE at peak performance.

“We believe we have created the largest ATE-focused organization outside of the OEMs,” stated Bryan Banish, CEO of Boston Semi Equipment. “Our ATE organizations have been delivering standard ATE configurations, test services, custom equipment solutions, and service and support programs for our semiconductor ATE customers since 1994. Because we have experience on all major current generation and legacy ATE models, we can support any and all ATE-related projects to meet our customers’ test needs.”

BSE acquired Test Advantage Hardware in 2010 and has steadily expanded the company’s capabilities in current-generation ATE platforms. In June, 2014 the company also acquired MVTS Technologies (MVTS), which has extensive experience extending the life of legacy ATE, maximizing the investment of semiconductor companies in their test assets. The combined capabilities provide Boston Semi Equipment customers with an alternate source for high quality and economical ATE equipment, service, and test cell solutions.
