POWAY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 6, 2017--
Cohu, Inc. (NASDAQ:COHU), a leading supplier of semiconductor equipment,
announced today the introduction of the new cDragon contactor for
testing a wide spectrum of RF devices used in mobile and IoT (Internet
of Things) applications.
The expansion of RF semiconductors continues to be driven by growing
device interconnectivity and data sharing. The new cDragon leverages
advanced micro electroforming technology to build contact elements that
optimize signal performance for high frequency semiconductor test, such
as those used in GPS, Bluetooth, cellular and wireless transmission.
These devices are key to enable the connectivity in today’s smartphones,
cars and emerging IoT products. cDragon combines excellent signal
integrity with long-life and elastomer-free architecture. It is well
suited for harsh, high volume production environments requiring tight
temperature accuracy during test.
During intensive testing at a leading semiconductor manufacturer, the
new cDragon has proven its stable performance in high volume production.
The innovative contact spring manufacturing technology delivers
remarkably long lifespan and stable signal integrity. Cohu has received
initial volume production orders for cDragon that are expected to ship
in the first and second quarter of 2017.
Cohu will be showcasing cDragon Contactor and other innovative test
contactors at the Burn-in & Test Strategies (BiTS) Workshop from March 5th
to 8th in Mesa, Arizona.
Cohu is a leading supplier of semiconductor test and inspection
handlers, micro-electro mechanical system (MEMS) test modules, test
contactors and thermal sub-systems used by global semiconductor
manufacturers and test subcontractors.
Forward Looking Statements:
Certain matters discussed in this release, including statements
concerning Cohu's cDragon product are forward-looking statements that
are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results
to differ materially from those projected or forecasted. Such risks and
uncertainties include, but are not limited to, our ability to convert
new products under development into production on a timely basis,
support product development and meet customer delivery and acceptance
requirements for next generation products, failure to obtain customer
acceptance resulting in the inability to recognize revenue and accounts
receivable collection problems, our reliance on patents and intellectual
property, compliance with U.S. export regulations, and the cyclical and
unpredictable nature of capital expenditures by semiconductor
manufacturers. These and other risks and uncertainties are discussed
more fully in Cohu's filings with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, including the most recently filed Form 10-K and Form 10-Q.
Cohu assumes no obligation to update the information in this release.
