Innovation Put to the Test™

FormFactor is transforming semiconductor test with advanced wafer probe solutions, helping customers reduce their test costs and enable their technical roadmaps. Founded in 1993, FormFactor is the leader in advanced wafer probe cards, which are used by semiconductor manufacturers to electrically test integrated circuits, or ICs. The company's wafer sort, burn-in and device performance testing products move IC testing upstream from post-packaging to the wafer level, enabling semiconductor manufacturers to lower their overall production costs, improve yields, and bring next-generation devices to market. FormFactor has received numerous accolades in recognition of its contributions to helping semiconductor manufacturers enable their technology roadmaps. Because of its potential to revolutionize the semiconductor industry, FormFactor’s MicroSpring contact technology was inducted into the Smithsonian Institution’s Year 2000 permanent collection.
