The heart of VOICE continues to be its comprehensive learning and networking opportunities comprised of a technical program featuring more than 90 presentations across both locations with submissions from authors representing 28 companies and 10 countries; Partners’ Expos; social gatherings; Technology Kiosks; and stimulating keynote speakers.  This year’s technical tracks will focus on device/system level test, the internet of things (IoT), test methodologies, hardware and software design integration, the latest hot topics and – for the first time in 2019 – test solutions enabled by Advantest’s T2000 platform.  Each location will host a technology kiosk showcase offering attendees the opportunity to interact directly with Advantest product experts.

The general session on May 14 in Scottsdale will include an Advantest technology discussion panel moderated by Hans-Juergen Wagner, senior vice president of the SoC business group and managing executive officer at Advantest Corporation.  Four of the company’s leading test experts – Rich Lathrop, Hagen Goller, Masayuki Suzuki and Koichi Tsukui – will sit on the panel and field questions from VOICE attendees.
