LIVERMORE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/30/13 -- FormFactor Inc. (NASDAQ: FORM) today announced the shipping of its 2000th probe card incorporating the company's proprietary Matrix architecture. This shipment milestone, which includes the company's SmartMatrix™, TouchMatrix™ and TrueScale Matrix™ advanced wafer probe cards used by IC manufacturers for full wafer-contact DRAM, Flash memory and system-on-chip device testing, was achieved 18 months sooner than that of any other product in the company's history. The 2000th Matrix probe card was shipped to a major memory manufacturer, where it is being used for next-generation, mobile DRAM testing.

"The shipment of our 2000th Matrix probe card, underscores the significant adoption of the Matrix full wafer contactor product line in its DRAM, Flash and SOC applications," said Tony Tryba, General Manager of the FormFactor Product Group. "The Matrix family is setting new standards in full wafer probe card applications as customers realize the benefits of the high-end capability, in-situ stability, and high reliability of this platform -- even as we continue to extend its overall performance envelope." FormFactor's Matrix family of probe cards enables customers to optimize tester utilization and improve yield thru superior uptime, contact accuracy and signal integrity.
