Accel-RF Corp. announced the successful shipment and installation of two advanced semiconductor reliability test systems to customers in Asia. The systems were delivered in Q4 of 2010 with installation completed in early January 2011. Shipped to both government research and commercial entities, these systems will be instrumental in the development of compound semiconductor device performance characterization in Asia.

“Following our successful entry into the European Union last year, Accel-RF is excited to begin distributing our products to customers in Asia,” says Roland Shaw, President and Founder of Accel-RF. “It is exciting for us at Accel-RF to be part of the advancement and evolution of reliable RF/microwave compound semiconductors worldwide,” adds Shaw. Service and first-line hardware support of these systems will be performed by Amtechs Corp. in Japan and SE Technologies in Taiwan. “As a manufacturer of advanced test instruments, Accel-RF’s technical staff will always be partnered with our customers.” Shaw continues, “Our distributors in Asia for sales, service, and first-line support have a track record of extraordinary support with our market-space and their technical expertise is exceptional.”

Accel-RF has been selling RF Reliability Test Systems in the US since 2004. After successful expansion to Europe in 2009, successful penetration in Asia is a testament to market acceptance and compelling value. “Global expansion for complex equipment like ours has to be done carefully and with individual attention”, adds Shaw, “I am proud to say that even with this major expansion effort we have maintained a very close relationship with all of our customers.”
