Advantest Cloud Solutions™ (ACS)

An Open Solutions Ecosystem for an Integrated Semiconductor Supply Chain

Today's semiconductor manufacturers face continual market pressures to design and produce increasingly intricate and complex ICs.

The traditionally used manual approaches for achieving and maintaining high yields are both time-consuming and expensive. As the complexity of chips increases, these traditional methods are becoming cost-prohibitive and less and less suitable for managing the data explosion in semiconductor manufacturing. At the same time, semiconductor manufacturers struggle to realize value from the data they collect.

To master this challenge, being able to integrate all data sources across the entire IC manufacturing supply chain is the most essential strategy. When combined with advanced analytics and machine learning capabilities, future-proof, real-time automated production control is in reach.

The Advantest Cloud Solutions™ (ACS) ecosystem helps customers accomplish intelligent data-driven workflows. The ACS ecosystem is a family of cloud-based products and technologies based on a single scalable data platform that allows customers to develop or procure market-leading solutions from Advantest and its partners. Automatically turning insights into automated production-control actions in real-time based on machine learning algorithms becomes possible in an easy to use and accessible way across the entire Advantest equipment portfolio.

This new ACS ecosystem enables customers to boost quality, yield, and operational efficiencies, and to accelerate product development and new product introductions for years to come.
