About Aetrium Inc.
Aetrium Incorporated designs, manufactures, and markets electromechanical equipment used in the handling and testing of integrated circuits (ICs). The companys primary focus is on high volume ICs and on the latest IC package designs. Its products are purchased primarily by semiconductor manufacturers and their assembly and test subcontractors.
The companys products are used in the test, assembly and packaging, or TAP, segment of semiconductor manufacturing. It has two principal equipment product lines include test handler products and reliability test equipment.
Test Handler Products
Test handlers are electromechanical systems interfaced with a tester to form a test system designed to handle, thermally condition, contact, and sort ICs automatically during the final test stage of the manufacturing process. ICs are loaded into the test handler from bowls, tubes or trays and then, if required, transported to a temperature chamber with in the test handler where they are thermally conditioned to the required testing temperature. The ICs are then placed into a contactor, which provides an electrical connection between the IC and the tester. After testing, the test handler sorts the ICs according to test performance as provided by the tester. In some cases, additional process steps are completed by the test handler system. These include marking or inspection of the IC packages, and automatic placement of the ICs into a tube, tray or tape for shipment to the end user.
ICs are multi-function semiconductor devices that may contain millions of individual transistors, and include microprocessors, microcontrollers, digital signal processors and memory devices. ICs come in a range of sizes and package types, depending upon their application.
In the testing of ICs, the device package type being tested often dictates the type of test handler used. Small outline packages (SOPs), constituting the IC package segment, have leads, or electrical contacts, extending from two sides and are typically tested with gravity feed test handlers. Micro leadless packages, or MLPs (and sometimes referred to as DFNs or QFNs), have electrical contact pads flush with the sides and bottoms of the ICs. Its test handler product lines are all gravity feed test handlers.
Gravity Feed Test Handlers
The companys gravity feed test handlers can heat or cool the ICs being tested to test temperatures ranging from -55 degrees Celcius to +155 degrees Celcius. They use mechanical refrigeration to cool ICs.
The companys 55V Series is its principal and newest line of gravity feed test handlers. The 55V Series focuses on analog and logic IC applications and addresses a range of IC packages, including SOPs and MLFs. The 55V Series offers a small footprint, a vertical backplane that can accommodate any size of test head, and its high speed test site actuator. The company offers the 55V Series in single, dual, quad and 8 test site configurations.
Change Kits and Spare Parts

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
