Performance Board

Device interface


Performance boards offering flexible support for an array of test items.

The role of the performance board is accurate transmission of tester signals all the way to the device leads. Custom performance boards from ADVANTEST deliver support for DUTs (devices under test), as they become faster and smaller, with greater pin counts, and increasingly take the form of SMDs. ADVANTEST performance boards also support a host of test requirements, such as analog test, high-speed performance, and high-density, for testing state-of-the-art ICs.

General-Purpose Performance Board

ADVANTEST's rich product lineup of general-purpose performance boards is available quickly, and at low cost. They are useful for a diverse array of applications, including prototype verification and volume production. Flexible and versatile, they also deliver solid performance.

Custom Performance Board

ADVANTEST performance board design and manufacture are optimized to specific customer device test needs, based on our long experience and proven track record. We bring improved total cost performance by supplying highly reliable performance boards at low cost and in a timely manner.

Assurance of high reliability

We have minimized variation in characteristics arising from performance board interconnects, resulting in improved repeatability of test data. Prevention of problems such as wire breakage also contributes to high reliability.

Noise reduction for precise test

Noise reduction is achieved by impedance matching in signal lines, timing accuracy matching, multi-layering to reduce impedance between the power supply and ground, and adding capacitance near device pins. This achievement facilitates test with excellent waveform quality and timing accuracy.

Support for leading-edge ICs

ADVANTEST performance boards can support, within tester channel count limitations, impedance matching of ±5%, timing accuracy of ±50 ps, high-pin-count devices with 1,000 or more pins, and devices with pitches of 0.4 mm or less.

Drastic shortening of development cycles

Thanks to batch manufacturing, which includes application programming, devices can be tested precisely and with high repeatability. Customer application development cycles and manpower requirements are also dramatically reduced.

32Gbps Test Performance Board

Accuracy required of Performance Board is more higher due to high speed, high density semiconductor devices.
We propose solutions by utilizing the board design experience of many years, and support customer's test cost reduction and prompt board design.
