Elsoft mainly provides cost effective ATE solutions to the semiconductor, optoelectronic and automation industries. The Group’s key product i.e. test and burn-in systems are used by its customers who manufacture optoelectronic devices such as LED, image sensors and automotive lightings to test their products before launching into the market. The name “Elsoft” consists of two elements i.e. Electronics and Software, symbolising the Group’s core competency in advanced electronics design and software technology innovation.
The company was founded by Mr. Tan Cheik Eaik, Mr. Koay Kim Chiew, Mdm. Tan Ai Jiew and Mr. Tan Ah Lek.

The history of Elsoft Group can be traced back to 1996 with the incorporation of Siangtronics Technology Sdn Bhd (STSB), which was primarily involved in the manufacturing, retailing and designing of computer software, components and accessories. Since its inception, STSB has successfully developed various series of test and burn-in solutions for the semiconductor and optoelectronic industries and has grown considerably to become a key player in the ATE industry. Its customer base is made up of leading MNCs in the semiconductor and optoelectronic industries.
In 2003, pursuant to the restructuring exercise, STSB transferred its operations to Elsoft and concentrates on electronic devices/modules assembly, test and burn-in system integration and customised manufacturing solutions. The restructuring exercise enables the Group to accelerate prototype development and time to commercialisation and enhance the quality and performance of its solutions. In addition, the R&D resources of Elsoft extend the Group’s product to meet customers’ requirements, ensuring quality and cost competitiveness throughout every stage of design.
