TOKYO, JAPAN--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2013) - Leading semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (
"With its ability to accurately test a wide range of high-density ICs, our GVI64 system delivers industry-leading productivity," said Satoru Nagumo, executive officer of Advantest Corporation. "The cost of test is minimized by the module's fast cycle times and reduced maintenance needs."
The GVI64 integrates multiple test functions in a single module, including parametric, timing and linearity measurements. Other testers on today's market require several modules -- along with more complex and costly performance boards/load boards, circuits and relays -- to perform the same array of tests.
In addition, Advantest's new module leverages advanced digital-feedback technologies that allow it to archive and recall test results for greater accuracy, best-in-class performance and spike-free switching in parametric measurements.
The system can operate over a VI range of -64 volts to 85 volts per 240 milliamperes and a time-measurement unit range of -50 volts to 50 volts over a 100 megahertz bandwidth.
Shipments of Advantest's T2000 GVI64 module are expected to begin in the first half of 2014.
