OTTAWA, CANADA - August 15th, 2015 ---- DA-Integrated, a leading global provider of integrated circuit development and supply management services, announced today that it has installed a V93000 Smart Scale™ system-on-chip (SoC) test system from Advantest, the world's largest provider of automatic test equipment (ATE) to the semiconductor industry. DA-Integrated's selection of the V93000 Smart Scale system is based on the tester's high performance and scalability, its widespread use at outsourced semiconductor assembly and test foundries and its compatibility with a previously installed P1000 test system, which is legacy equipment from Advantest's acquisition of ATE supplier Verigy in 2011.
「Our offering is unique in the world of test development service providers,」 said Scott Bulbrook, vice president of Engineering at DA-Integrated. 「As we design and implement test access and custom BIST (built-in self-test) circuits for our customers' advanced node SoC devices, targeting the V93000 Smart Scale for production test is a great fit. Our seamless integration of verification environments into ATE test programs is supported nicely by Advantest's SmarTest Software.」
「We have been in partnership with DA-Integrated for several years now, successfully providing semiconductor manufacturers with a proven path from engineering development to high volume production,」 said Hans-Juergen Wagner, senior vice president of SoC Product Group at Advantest Corporation. 「This repeat order from DA-Integrated further validates the advanced performance capabilities of our V93000 platform, and when coupled with DA-Integrated's comprehensive IC design and test development services, the solution offers customers accelerated time to market and high fault coverage at the lowest possible cost of test.」
