TWST: Which of your products would you highlight as your best performers? And tell us about the new product you launched last month.
Mr. Tacelli: From the test side, the number-one product that's been widely accepted in the marketplace over the last couple of years is a product called Diamondx. It tests a broad group of devices inside the semiconductor-device market. So everything from application processes inside cell phones to high-end microcontrollers that contain some level of RF wireless frequency to set-top box, digital TV. We launched that product about two years ago. And today, we have close to two dozen new customers using the product and covering almost every region, and that I would consider to be the number-one product launch of the company over the past couple of years.
In addition to that, we've launched a wide variety of instrumentation. Instrumentations go after, extend our lead or capture new market in that application-specific market segment: RF wireless. We've launched new options and applications to go after certain automotive-type devices. In addition to the test field, now that we have the handling business, which was formally known as Multitest, we've launched a couple of products there as well over the past 12 months, mainly in the pick-and-place area for handling high-end devices, and also some unique capability in the WLCSP - wafer level chip scale packing - device testing.
We believe we have some technology that can deliver significant cost savings to our customers over their current approach. We also offer innovative and market-leading test systems in the bare board printed circuit board market. Our flying probe technology, with its high speed and exceptional accuracy, gives us a strong lead for this type of testing technology.
TWST: What do you think will be the next wave of innovation in your business, and how are you positioning the company to be at the forefront of it?
