Cascade Microtech Inc. has acquired the Reliability Test Products (RTP) business of Aetrium Inc. that specialises in package- and wafer-level reliability (WLR) solutions for wafer process technologies. The deal aims to strengthen Cascade Microtech's position as a global leader in the design, development and manufacture of advanced wafer probing solutions for the electrical measurement and test of semiconductor ICs, the firms noted.

The acquisition of the RTP business affords Cascade Microtech the opportunity to leverage its market position, and focuses the necessary resources towards solving significant customer challenges resulting from advanced materials, new geometries and new design rules. These expanded core competencies enable Cascade Microtech to further address customers' needs at advanced nodes, and are particularly important as FinFET and other 3D structures exhibit properties that will evidence themselves in an increasing variety of reliability-related issues.

Customers of Aetrium's RTP business will also benefit from Cascade Microtech's global service and support network, and its strong commitment to customer satisfaction and technology leadership, added the firms.
