ISI RECEIVES MULTIPLE VOLUME ORDERS FOR THEIR BLAZER-X5B BAR LEVEL QUASI-STATIC TESTER FROM LEADING DISK DRIVE MANUFACTURERS
SANTA CLARA, CA – May 22, 2006: Integral Solutions International, ISI, the world’s leading manufacturer of Quasi-Static testers for the data storage industry, announced today that it has received multiple volume orders for their Blazer-X5B Bar Level Quasi-Static tester from leading disk drive manufacturers.
According to Henry Patland, President and CEO, “ISI has over 650 Quasi-static Testers (QST) installed worldwide making ISI the unquestioned leader in the QST arena. With our patented technology to identify head instability early in the process, leading disk drive manufacturers are able to characterize advanced head designs early in the slider fab process and improve downstream yields as a result. We have the largest quasi-static product line and largest installed base in the industry and we will maintain our dominant position by continuing to invest in the research and development of new technologies and innovative products”.
With recent technical advances, the Blazer-X5B allows engineers and scientists to perform critical quasi-static measurements including patented noise and stability tests at the row bar level and is commonly implemented in production right after the lapping processes. It is at this point where target stripe heights are achieved and the true head performance can be characterized, translating into higher final product yields and improved cost of ownership.
Integral Solutions International (referred to as ISI) is a privately held California based US Corporation. ISI was established in September 1995 and is the leading manufacturer of Quasi-Static testers for GMR, TMR and Perpendicular Heads. This includes a line of Quasi-Static (QST) Testers, ESD and Temperature Stress Testers. ISI’s product line of testers consists of Row Bar QST, Slider QST, HGA, HSA, HDA, and Tape Head QST. Optional components include the ESD MR Head Stress System and Temperature Controller System.
ISI provides worldwide customer support from the United States, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Hong-Kong, and the Philippines.
