Company Overview
Testmetrix Inc. designs and manufactures test equipment for the semiconductor industry, in particular for Flash Memory Devices and CMSOS Image Sensors. High performance engineering as well as production testers are offered worldwide through offices in US, Europe, Japan and Taiwan.

The first products that Testmetrix introduced on the market were Universal Semiconductor Device Programmers. Within a few years the product line was expanded to include Semiconductor Device Test Equipment. In 1990, Testmetrix announced its first PCMCIA Memory Card Tester/Programmer. Anticipating the future growth of Flash Memory technology, Testmetrix introduced in 1992 the CardServer family of testers/duplicators, a popular line of engineering and production testers used by virtually every card developer and manufacturer at the time. This product line was featured on the cover of the September 1994 issue of Test & Measurement World magazine.

As new and faster Flash memory technologies emerged, Testmetrix developed and introduced in 2000 the VTE line of Compliance/Engineering testers for Flash chips and cards. The VTE-2100 tester was an instant hit and became the number one choice for Compliance/Engineering testers for Flash memory chips and cards on the market. It was followed over the years by subsequent VTE models, by the AVTE line of automated testers for production, and by the ICS/IST line of CMOS Imange Sensor testers.
