ST Assembly Test Services Ltd (STATS) has announced that it is opening a manufacturing facility in Shanghai, China. STATS' new facility is expected to provide a strategic presence in China's growing outsourcing semiconductor business.

The 25,000 square-foot leased facility located at the Zhangjiang High Tech Park in Pudong is scheduled to operate by the end of October 2003. It will provide wafer probe and final test services for mixed-signal and high-end digital applications, including wired and wireless communications, and digital consumer products. The facility will be equipped with a range of mixed-signal and high-end digital test platforms including Teradyne Catalyst, Teradyne J750, and Agilent 93K. In addition, STATS will transfer some of its existing production equipment from its Singapore facility to China.

Tan Lay Koon, STATS president and CEO, said, "China, with its emerging cluster of foundries and design houses, is a strategic market for STATS. With this facility in Shanghai, we have taken the first step of our strategic plan to establish a significant manufacturing presence in China to service our existing international customers as well as engage the indigenous Chinese foundries and design houses. This facility will offer wafer probe and final test to address the immediate market opportunities that we see in China today. STATS' existing engagements with customers which are better serviced out of China will be transferred to this new facility in Shanghai when it is operational."
