According to a Semiconductor Engineering article that ran late last year, the market for used IC equipment is heating up. They reported that Lam Research believes that used semiconductor equipment will be approximately 10 percent of the overall equipment market, or about $3 billion in 2014. The article also spoke about the importance of purchasing used equipment from reputable OEM’s, and as a result of this demand, we launched SourceOne to deliver the quality and service you’d expect from sound used semiconductor equipment.
A recent blog we posted detailed how to avoid risk in purchasing used semiconductor equipment and an even more recent post touted the launch of SourceOne, a new program offering Cascade Microtech certified used test and measurement equipment for sale. SourceOne brings our quality and industry-leading performance to the secondary equipment market. It offers a diverse inventory of completely reconditioned probe stations built by us, such as the M150, Summit™, PA200, Elite300™ or S300, as well as accessories like eVue™ microscopes and thermal systems.
SourceOne also has a trade-in/buy-back program that is worth highlighting. If your test and measurement requirements are changing, and you need to upgrade to the newest products from Cascade Microtech, trade in your equipment using SourceOne. If lab space is at premium and underutilized probe stations must be removed, take advantage of SourceOne simplified buy-back.
- Receive cash or credit for your returned probe station
- Credit is good toward any of our products or services
- Simplified logistics make shipping and handling easy
- We provide competitive market rates
