Avago Technologies Chooses Advantest

Print Share

Dec 15, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Advantest Corp. has entered a new market segment by selling a V93000 Smart Scale platform to Avago Technologies' Fiber Optic Products Division for use in testing optical transceiver devices for high-speed backplane and telecommunication applications.

"Winning this business shows that Advantest can provide highly productive and cost-effective test solutions for applications beyond mainstream semiconductor production," said Makoto Nakahara, senior vice president of sales for Advantest Corp., in a release.

"With the V93000 Smart Scale solution, we get all the features of a fully integrated SoC (system-on-chip) tester along with scalability at a price that is comparable with our previous solution," said Faouzi Chaahoub, senior director of FOPD for Avago. "Additionally, we have been able to achieve four times the level of multi-site testing. We plan to move most of our high-volume production to the V93000 Smart Scale platform."

The V93000 Smart Scale platform meets Avago's requirements for a system that provides a compact footprint, flexible performance and advanced features including digital channel pins for DC testing. The scalable tester purchased by Avago FOPD is equipped with an A-Class test head, two Pin Scale 1600 digital channel cards and a VI32 card, presenting a highly parallel, 16-site wafer-sort solution for the 28 nm technology node and beyond.

Avago Technologies is a designer, developer and supplier of a broad range of analog, mixed-signal and optoelectronics components and subsystems.

Advantest is a producer of automatic test equipment.
