iST(TWSE:3289) today (Jan 9, 2015) announced its net revenues on a consolidated basis, the revenues for November 2014 were approximately NT$163 million. Month over month, the consolidated revenue increased 5.72%, and 11.33% increase from the same period of 2013. The revenue for 2014 is NT$1.84 billion which has increased by 13.07% from last year, a new record throughout the years.

iST said, the Q4 revenue began to climb since October, and reached to the highest peak in December 2014. The main reason was the flourishing business in both Taiwan and China, and the subsidiary of iST, ITS (Innovative Turnkey Solution Corporation), the analog IC testing company kept the stable performance even during the low season.

iST further pointed out that, following the growth of smart products, wearable devices and Internet of Things (IoT), the demand of MEMS G-Sensor components expands gradually. IC Design companies deploy actively to set foot in this market.

iST has assisted several customers in conducting the MEMS testing. Recently, to be aimed at the debugging of MEMS G-sensor that RICHTEK developed actively, iST provided the best analysis solution. Based on the successful cooperation in 2013 on the 1st generation of standard flow of FA for MEMS G-Sensor. In 2014, these two parties cooperated again at the 2nd generation of MEMS analysis, and iST has verified successfully the failure factors for RICHTEK on the stage of MEMS design. This analysis technique has further gained recognition of the International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED).

iST indicated, “RICHTEK is a leading supplier of MEMS in IC design companies. iST is privileged to have gained trust of RICHTEK for long-term cooperation by providing a total solution service to verify failure factors of MEMS G-Sensor, assisting RICHTEK in expediting the process of product design, final design and commoditization.”
