Advantest Corporation manufactures and sells semiconductor and component test system products and mechatronics-related products. It operates through three segments: Semiconductor and Component Test System; Mechatronics System; and Services, Support and Others. The Semiconductor and Component Test System segment provides customers with test system products for the semiconductor industry and the electronic parts industry. This segment offers test systems for memory semiconductors; and test systems for non memory semiconductors, including test systems for system on a chip semiconductors, liquid crystal display driver integrated circuits, and semiconductors used in car electronics. The Mechatronics System segment focuses on peripheral devices to the semiconductor and component test systems. This segment offers test handlers applying mechatronics technologies, which handle semiconductor devices and automate testing, device interfaces with measured devices, and operations related to nano-technology. The Services, Support and Others segment provides customer solutions provided in connection with the Semiconductor and Component Test System and Mechatronics System segments, support services, and equipment lease business. The company also provides testing technology, application software, procurement, installation and warranty, training, and maintenance support services. It serves semiconductor manufacturers, foundries, and test houses in Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Singapore, the Americas, and Europe.

Advantest Corporation Launches TS9000 System for Semiconductor Packaging Inspection

Advantest Corporation announced that a new mold thickness metrology system, the TS9000, for measuring the thickness of semiconductor packaging, is available for purchase. The system is based on advances in Terahertz (THz) technology pioneered by Advantest. The TS9000 Mold Thickness Analysis (MTA) System is a new metrology tool that performs non-destructive analysis of the thickness of semiconductor packaging. Meeting the high standards of speed and accuracy required for high-volume manufacturing, it's innovative inspection capabilities are expected to contribute significantly to product quality improvement amid the trends towards smaller device sizes and higher integration, driven in part by the widespread adoption of smartphones and tablets. Already installed and in use, the TS9000 heralds a new product family of analysis systems for high-volume manufacturing. Future systems from the THz product family will target the pharmaceutical, automotive, ceramic and other industrial markets in addition to semiconductors.

Advantest Corporation to Promote its TAS7500 Family of Compact and Multipurpose Terahertz Spectroscopic / Imaging Systems

Advantest Corporation will promote its TAS7500 family of compact and multipurpose terahertz spectroscopic /imaging systems at SCIX (The Great SCIentific eXchange) to be held from September 28 -- October 3 in Reno-Tahoe, NV. The SCIX conference is organized and presented by FACSS, the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies. Advantest's TAS7500 series is a multipurpose spectral imaging and analysis system capable of performing rapid analysis using the unique properties of terahertz (THz) waves. It acquires spectral data based on modes of low energy vibration and intermolecular interaction in the THz range, for spectroscopic analysis. Its high permeability and linearity, offers a better solution, compared to near-infrared, for testing and analyzing the qualities in substances. In the technical program at SCIX, Advantest's scientist David Heaps will deliver a paper titled, Terahertz Mapping of Pharmaceutical Compaction Ribbons, overviewing the capabilities of the TAS7500TS system with an optical bench to create images of roller compaction ribbons, and scientist Xiao Hua Zhou will present a poster titled, Hardness Evaluation of Compressed Pharmaceutical Tablets Utilizing Terahertz Spectroscopy and Imaging, which demonstrates that terahertz spectroscopy is a viable alternative to the destructive hardness testing for monitoring quality in the pharmaceutical tableting process.
