The Global SMT & Packaging Journal presented the award on October 17, 2018 at the SMTA International 2018 conference in Chicago, Illinois.  The ATS 5034 SLT Platform received the award based on the following criteria: innovation, speed/throughput improvements, quality contribution, cost benefits, environmental consideration, ease of use/implementation, and maintainability.  Jon Sinskie, Astronics Test Systems’ Executive Vice President of Semiconductor Test, accepted the award on the company’s behalf.  Astronics will highlight the ATS 5034 SLT Platform at the International Test Conference (ITC) in Phoenix, Arizona, October 30 through November 1.

“Our goal is to help customers reduce cost of test and ensure optimal performance of their critical electronics,” commented Sinskie.  “We are honored to receive this recognition and I congratulate our team on developing such a groundbreaking solution.  This platform’s capabilities to test a variety of devices for a myriad of applications are simply unmatched in the industry.”

About the ATS 5034 SLT Platform

The ATS 5034 SLT Platform uses system-level test to examine at-speed and functional performance characteristics of the device under test (DUT) to find defects missed during traditional ATE functional testing.  Essentially, it tests the device in “mission-mode” or its end-use environment.

Featuring the ability to test up to 5,000 units per hour (UPH) on 396 sites in parallel, the 5034 SLT can be customized for specific volume, test time, lot size and thermal needs.  The platform supports testing of microprocessors, microcontrollers and embedded systems, including devices in today’s most advanced types of packaging.  Intended for the automotive, mobile and desktop device, Internet of Things, aerospace, and biomedical industries, the ATS 5034 SLT Platform can lower the cost of test, increase operational efficiency and maximize test coverage.

Astronics Test Systems will exhibit at ITC this week in Phoenix, Arizona in booth 500.  As a sponsor of the conference and the Automotive Reliability and Test (ART) Workshop, the company plans to attend a variety of technical sessions, as well as co-author a poster presentation at the ART Workshop, “Test cost and test quality: key factors for automotive monster-chips.”  For complete product details, to view the solution sheet or to request a quote, please visit
