Microprobe Ranked as Number One Supplier of Advanced Non-Memory Probe Cards Worldwide by VLSI Research: Company Tops Fastest-Growing Segment of Billion-Dollar Probe Card Market

San Jose, CA | Posted on May 23rd, 2011

According to the VLSI report "The Probe Card Market - 2010 Market Results & Forecast Update," the semiconductor probe card market grew by 40 percent last year to surpass $1.0 billion. The growth of advanced non-memory probe cards was even higher, clocking in at 59 percent to reach nearly $300 million. The growth in this segment -- MicroProbe's sweet spot -- is being driven by the proliferation of mobile devices and the advanced probe cards required for these applications. VLSI Research expects the pace to continue, with the overall probe card market predicted to reach $1.5 billion by 2015.

MicroProbe CEO Mike Slessor said, "Our multi-year focus on advanced system-on-a-chip (SoC) probe cards has allowed us to solve the key customer technical and economic challenges in this large and fast-growing space, and we're pleased to lead this segment in VLSI Research's respected survey. With the proliferation of consumer mobile devices and the advanced SoC semiconductors powering those devices, the migration from legacy probe cards to our advanced solutions is brisk. The steady adoption of our application-specific vertical MEMS solutions clearly indicates that these products are helping our customers meet their technical challenges, while also lowering their overall cost of test."

"Once again this year, MicroProbe is taking advantage of the growth opportunities with the right product mix," said Risto Puhakka, President at VLSI Research Inc. "The company's 66 percent year-over-year revenue increase substantially out-paced the overall probe card market momentum which says much about the strategy and execution of the team. Plus, they play in the fastest-growing segment of the probe card market which positions them well to maintain the trajectory."
