Automated Test Equipment Global Market - Overview
Testing microprocessors are getting more difficult and time-consuming, as these devices are intended to take on more complex tasks, such as accelerating artificial intelligence computing, enabling automated driving, and supporting deep neural networks. The market is majorly driven by growing demand for efficient power management, growing demand for the smartphone which is accelerating the market for semiconductors, and growing market of consumer electronics among others. A key factor is not just how individual components work, but how they work together in context with other parts of a system. That also affects test coverage and it often requires that devices under test (DUTs) be physically brought or sent to a lab. Another major factor that drives the market growth is rising complexities in consumer electronics and reduction in manufacturing time and cost. However, technical limitation such as high competition among the industrial manufacturer and dynamic changes in the technology is hindering the growth of Automated Test Equipment (ATE) Market.

Some of the major players in Global Automated Test Equipment Market include Chroma ATE Inc. (Taiwan), Cobham Plc (U.K.), Astronics Test Systems (U.S.), Agilent Technologies Inc. (U.S.), Teradyne Inc. (U.S.), Advantest Corporation (Japan), LTX-Credence Corporation (U.S.), Roos Instrument Inc. (U.S.), National Instrument Corporation (U.S.), Marvin Test Solution Inc. (U.S.) are profiled in MRFR Analysis and are at the forefront of competition in the Global Automated Test Equipment market.
Intel and its foundry clients use the proprietary High-Density Modular Test (HDMT) technology platform. Some other big chipmakers also have turned to internally developed testers. Meanwhile, other IC manufacturers use a mix of commercially available automatic test equipment and their internal test systems, while still others have resorted to DIY test setups, enabled with PXI-based instruments, such as the various modules offered by National Instruments and other vendors.
Advantest is the leading producer of automatic test equipment (ATE) for the semiconductor industry and a premier manufacturer of measuring instruments used in the design and production of electronic instruments and systems. The company also focuses on R&D for emerging markets that benefit from advancements in nanotech and terahertz technologies.
December 2017, IoT and 5G Test Will Make or Break Leaders. IoT and 5G test is challenging the status quo for leadership as cost, flexibility, ease of use, performance, and time-to-market acceleration. Equipment vendors and users respond to the conflicting dynamics in the next few years will affect who stays at the top of a test and measurement industry. Tektronix’s over-arching shift left strategy comes about as recognition that the role of a test in design verification and simulation needs to be spread more evenly from the end of the development process to earlier phases in the development cycle. A big part of this Shift Left work is to work toward a model where testing, simulation, compliance, and validation tools work together and yield similar results.
November 2017, Advantest launches innovative automated IC handler with thermal control for use in semiconductor engineering labs. Company’s new M4171 system reduces the cost of testing equipment and boosts productivity while enabling remote access from anywhere across the world, to meet the mobile electronics market’s need. This portable, single-site handler automates device loading and unloading, thermal conditioning and binning in engineering labs, where most testing today involves manual device handling. It also features an active thermal control capability typically available only on a larger footprint. The more costly production-volume handlers enables consumers to get higher utilization from their installed base.
