Effective Handling of the Covid-19 Pandemic by Taiwan Prompted the Decision of Semiconductor Test Company to Exhibit

A global leader in semiconductor test, Johnstech International will exhibit new products at Semicon Taiwan 2020 on September 22-25th with their local distributor Hypersonic. Due to the global pandemic, Johnstech had limited their participation in industry events citing concerns for employee safety. Johnstech Vice President of Global Engineering, Sales and Service Bob Chartrand explains that the company’s participation in Semicon Taiwan hinged on country’s effective handling of the outbreak and show organizers’ commitment to safety.

“For 29 years we have been a dedicated financial sponsor of the semiconductor industry and our number one priority is to protect the health and safety of our employees and customers,” says Chartrand. “This event checks all of those boxes for us and we’re happy to leverage our global network to support our customers across Asia.”

At the event, Johnstech International will unveil the ESTAT-PRO Series, a new line of low electrostatic discharge test contactors at Semicon Taiwan 2020 in Taipei, Taiwan. The ESTAT-PRO is Johnstech’s new ROL technology housing and alignment plate material. Currently offered with the Pad ROL® 200, Pad ROL® 100A, and Leaded ROL® 200, contactors with ESTAT-PRO material are designed for devices that exhibit higher sensitivity to electrostatic discharge (ESD) events.
“While ESD-safe materials are not new to the industry, what is new, is this proprietary material limits the triboelectric charging of the contactor to low levels while having a minimal effect on RF performance,” Bob explains. “This unique combination of material properties provides our customers with the benefits of ESD protection, without the typical AC performance compromise.”

“Johnstech has a reputation for delivering the best-in-class electrical performance for device testing in the marketplace and this new series only proves our commitment to pushing the envelope to enable the next generation in technology,” says Chartrand. “Johnstech customers know that they will receive premium test solutions and services that accurately and consistently replicate device specifications – a “must have” for the ongoing challenges for both automotive and 5G devices.”
