Electroglas Receives Order from Motorola's ULSI Advanced R&D Facility; Motorola selects Horizon 4085X for ULSI, cleanroom probing capabilities.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 19, 1995-- World-leading automatic wafer prober supplier Electroglas, Inc. (Nasdaq:EGLS) announced today that Motorola's Advanced Product Research and Develpment Lab (APRDL) in Austin, Texas, has purchased multiple Horizon 4085X systems for its ultra large scale integration (ULSI) fab line.

A longtime Electroglas customer, Motorola will utilize the new 4085X units to develop advanced electronic products for the company's targeted global markets.

According to John Singelyn at Motorola APRDL, Motorola chose the Horizon 4085X probers for its APDRL facility for two main reasons: the system's ability to probe 8-inch wafers, and its cleanroom capabilities. Stated Singelyn, "We're working on some leading-edge 8-inch products on our new ULSI line, and the need to control contamination during wafer test is critical. The 4085X is the only prober with this combination of features. And, of course, Electroglas has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to providing us with quality service and support."

Part of Electroglas' leading-edge Horizon series, the 4085X offers an option package unique to Electroglas-a clean air management system (CAMS) with ultrafine air filtration, plus a standard mechanical interface (SMIF). Together, these options provide a Class 1 cleanroom environment internal to the 4085X, regardless of overall sort floor cleanliness.

Commenting on the order, Electroglas' Vice President of Customer Operations, Conor O'Mahony, said, "The work Motorola is doing at APRDL is of long-term value to the electronics industry, and their use of our equipment in this process affords us the opportunity to make a significant contribution to their important R&D efforts."

Installation of the Electroglas systems at the Austin facility is currently under way.
