MPI acquires fellow Taiwanese firm Allstron

Taiwan’s MPI Corp, which provides production semiconductor test solutions, has acquired Taipei-based Allstron Corp, which was established in 2008 and has developed RF wafer probes and calibration substrates up to 110GHz for applications such as production test, RF device characterization, modeling and circuit-board test.

MPI reckons that the acquisition and infusion of technology has significantly reduced the time to market for its latest RF product line and will accelerate its design and development of RF probes for process development of advanced semiconductor integrated circuits.

“There are significant opportunities for improvement within the global test markets,” says MPI’s marketing VP Rob Carter. “Having incorporated Allstron’s products and technology within MPI’s latest test solutions and by utilizing our MEMS-based manufacturing expertise; we are able to accelerate the completion of our RF portfolio for the Advanced Semiconductor Test product line,” he adds. Along with the MPI suite of calibration products such as QAlibria software and calibration substrate line, the enhanced Allstron product brand will have a significant impact on RF testing by providing shortened lead-times while improving quality and electrical performance, Carter reckons.

“Infusing Allstron’s products into MPI Corporation’s offerings is a powerful solution for global RF test market,” says Allstron’s president Tennyson Lee. “With MPI’s RF applications expertise, QAlibria calibration software, engineering probe systems, and global support structure, the customer experience is on the verge of a significant and positive change.”
