BILLERICA, Mass. – June 7, 2016 – Boston Semi Equipment (BSE), the semiconductor equipment company redefining the price-performance model for semiconductor test automation equipment, announced today that its senior investment partner has committed to a new round of capital funding. This additional investment is a vote of confidence in the company’s new strategic direction and the market potential for BSE’s product development activities.
BSE, founded in 2010 as a secondary equipment provider to the semiconductor industry, has been transitioning its business to become an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of automation equipment for the handling and testing of semiconductor devices. BSE now develops and markets its own test handlers, wafer probers and custom designed automation equipment for the semiconductor market.
“This additional investment is being used to complete new products and fund engineering projects to expand BSE’s product offerings for our customers,” commented Colin Scholefield, Executive Vice President, Boston Semi Equipment. “Increasing the number of BSE-developed automation products for today’s semiconductor test floor will enable our customers to come to one source for more of their test automation needs.”
BSE also provides semiconductor manufacturers, OSATs and fabless companies with the legacy automatic test equipment they continue to use on their test floors every day. BSE’s worldwide team of product specialists helps customers maximize the productivity of all BSE products.
