FormFactor began life in 1993 when former IBM researcher, Igor Khandros, began developing products for the semiconductor industry in a tiny NY lab. Soon, Khandros and his small crew hit on the wire-bonded MicroSpring – a foundational technology for three semiconductor applications: sockets, packaging and probe cards.

The first FormFactor MEMS fab was born in Elmsford, NY

From those modest beginnings we’ve grown with the industry, consistently applying practical innovation to help semiconductor manufacturers keep pace with Moore’s Law. Today, we’re the top provider of advanced SoC and memory probe cards to the global semiconductor industry.
