Author:   |    Publish date:


Hey all, this time we are going to cover a theme that has good growth potential, especially with the boom in semconductor sector.

But we know political uncertainty is not helping us at all. Can we still consider this theme?

Well, while we are not in control of what could happen politically, we should always be prepared in case situation turns to our favour. So getting to know a good sector with a good theme is always beneficial to us.

We are going to cover the Automated Test Equipment(ATE) theme for you guys!

 

First of all, what is ATE?

Automated test equipment (ATE) is computer-controlled equipment that tests electronic devices for functionality and performance. ATE also conducts stress testing with minimal human interaction. ATE includes the control hardware, sensors, and software that collects and analyzes the test results. ATE is considered cost efficient for high-volume testing.

Automated test equipment uses a range of sensing techniques, including machine vision. In addition to the semiconductor industry, ATE is used in the automotive, medical equipment, airplane, and other manufacturing industries.

4) MI TECHNOVATION (MI)

5) ELSOFT RESEARCH (ELSOFT)

6) MMS VENTURES (MMSV)

7) AEMULUS HOLDINGS (AEMULUS)

With the rise of demand for chips, we are in need of AUTOMATION to ensure there is a smoother transition to create high volume flawless end products and that's where automated test equipments play a major role.

 

Let's take a look at how some of the companies perform recently?

1) VITROX

 

2) MI TECHNOVATION (MI)

 

3) AEMULUS

 

We are anticipating the rest of the companies who have not posted their quarter results to ride on the wave of increased revenue too.

Some of the companies that are coming up with their quarter results include PENTA, MMSV and ELSOFT.

These are some key highlights/prospects (as an example) for MMSV
