Every probe card project is unique to an individual IC design.

So it’s critical that all aspects of the design and build are closely and collaboratively managed. That’s why our partnership with customers begins at the earliest design phase, when we collectively evaluate advanced packaging and wafer test feasibility for new IC designs. It’s a deep, proactive engagement geared to help customers extract and validate critical data earlier in the test process to improve yield management and dramatically shorten the time to volume production and revenue.

We consider this design-to-test collaborative model an imperative enabler of advanced ICs, especially with the compressed time-to-market demands of today’s mobile markets. Central to the model is advanced probe card technology and expertise, where we not only help customers manufacture their current products, we also help them innovate and build the products of tomorrow. This means applying our four-plus decades of industry knowledge and experience to solve technical and cost challenges before a complicated design starts production, and well before first silicon reaches the test floor. Because, by then it’s too late for probe card revisions.

To that end, FormFactor customers can count on these advanced test technologies to be delivered with the highest quality levels in the industry. And that the probe card can test wafers immediately on arrival. We call it our “First Time Right” commitment.

Finally, to ensure that the products function at the highest quality levels throughout their lifetime, FormFactor has planted support teams at customers’ test locations — primed to provide ultra-fast service and repair. Customers report that this “First Time Right” commitment has cut repair downtime dramatically – from days and even weeks – to hours.

Technology and design partnerships, “First Time Right” product quality, and global customer support — That’s what we mean by Collaboration.
