Trio-Tech will set up a joint venture that will provide system level testing and burn-in services for semiconductor components.
Trio-Tech International has signed a joint venture agreement with a Chinese company based in Suzhou to set up a company that will provide system level testing (SLT) and burn-in services for a variety of semiconductor components with applications in computing and automotive electronics.
“This new joint venture will operate a facility, only a few miles from our operations in Suzhou, China, with a team that has advanced expertise in burn-in testing and SLT for advanced semiconductor products and assemblies. The technical expertise and influence of the Chinese company, coupled with our experience in the burn-in industry, will create a significant competitive advantage in providing SLT and burn-in testing services for integrated semiconductor assemblies in the rapidly growing electric vehicle industry. We expect this joint venture to enhance the future growth of Trio-Tech,” said S.W. Yong, Trio-Tech CEO.
“SLT adds the ability to test the performance of semiconductor components, or multiple components, as they perform when packaged together. It differs from structural and functional testing of semiconductor components by including a performance evaluation of the components when tested together as integrated systems and installations.”
Yong noted that Trio-Tech will hold a majority equity ownership position in the new joint venture company and said the joint venture company expects also to provide testing and equipment maintenance services for its customers.
