Aetrium Introduces New Wafer Level Reliability Test Platform

ST. PAUL, Minn., April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aetrium Incorporated
(Nasdaq:ATRM) today introduced a new Wafer Level Reliability (WLR) test
platform to its portfolio of reliability test products, which are used by
semiconductor manufacturers and wafer foundries to ensure their products
exceed acceptable performance and quality standards.

Symphony WLR is a compact reliability test system that supports Aetrium's
comprehensive suite of intrinsic reliability test applications in either
single site configuration or multi-site when taking advantage of Aetrium's
true parallel architecture. Aetrium's Conductor software package controls
third party probe stations for fully automated test execution and high data
throughput.

"Among other benefits, WLR testing eliminates the packaging step necessary for
traditional testing," said Steve Schultz, Director of Marketing and
Applications. "This provides manufacturers an opportunity to analyze devices
weeks earlier and better meet critical time-to-market demands."

"WLR is increasingly important to the reliability industry, especially for the
newest semiconductor technologies that are sensitive to packaging and
handling," adds Timothy McMullen, VP and GM of Aetrium's Reliability Test
Products Group."Symphony and Conductor are valuable tools for reliability
labs, nicely complementing package level testers."
