August Technology Corp. has acquired Semiconductor Technologies and Instruments Inc. (STI), a manufacturer of automated micro-defect inspection equipment formerly owned by ASTI Holdings Ltd of Singapore.

The acquisition provides August with STI's integrated tool combining die sorting with advanced automated inspection. In addition, STI's customer base of foundries in Taiwan and some integrated device manufacturers in Europe and the United States add to August's client list.

"This acquisition significantly enhances our ability to serve these diverse and growing markets, including advanced packaging and wafer bumping. We are particularly interested in STI's strengths related to 2D and 3D inspection on the probe floor, an area of increasing importance as the industry drives towards known good die strategies for wafer-level packaging and system-in-package applications," stated Jeff O'Dell, CEO of August.
