advantest corp (6857) Details

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 was founded in 1954 and is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

Advantest Corporation Introduces New M6245 Test Handler

Advantest Corporation has introduced its new M6245 test handler, offering productivity with minimal downtime by incorporating the company's latest advances for handling double data rate (DDR) and Flash memory devices. The M6245 handler incorporates a visual-alignment system that improves test yields by achieving contact accuracy to within 0.3 mm ball pitch. This makes the system capable of handling memories with fine pitches. The highly precise alignment capability also allows faster set-up and calibration, contributing to higher system productivity. In addition, a new handling design for M6245 ensures maximum throughput while applying visual alignment to support fine-pitch devices. The design also enables the high possible throughput when using mechanical alignment for current pitch devices. Productivity is maximized by the new handler's high level of automation. Semiconductor devices are automatically re-tested from initial testing, reducing the workload on operators while helping to ensure the high possible yield. Using Advantest's proprietary new thermal technology "dual-fluid design, " the temperature of each device under test can be maintained to within +/-1 C throughout the range of -20 C to 100 C while temperature accuracy is +/-2 C over the ranges of -40 C to -20.1 C and 100.1 C to 125 C. This enables highly accurate testing of memory ICs that operate over a wide spectrum of temperatures.

Advantest Corporation Launches New Multi-Purpose Parametric Measurement Unit Module, the T2000 PMU32E

Advantest Corporation has launched a new multi-purpose parametric measurement unit (PMU) module, the T2000 PMU32E, to enhance its T2000 platform's capabilities in testing digital, analog and power-management system-on-chip (SoC) devices. The new high-density, 32-channel module is fully compatible with Advantest's original PMU32 module - even using the same tester interface unit (TIU) - while offering twice the resolution and accuracy. This enables a T2000 tester equipped with the new PMU32E module to achieve high-level measurement accuracy, set-up time and gang functionality similar to those of a T2000 EPP (Enhanced Performance Package) tester. With the T2000 PMU32E, the measurement time is more than two times faster than with the earlier module. In particular, DC linearity measurement time is much faster due to an enhanced sampling rate and enhanced data transfer. These faster operating speeds lead to significantly higher throughputs and a lower overall cost of test. Operating efficiency is further improved by the new module's ability to run test programs already developed for the earlier PMU32 module. In addition, the new module features twice as much memory capacity, expanding the capabilities of the channel-independent arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) and digitizer. The PMU32E also supports load testing of on-die regulators (ODR) with its ISVM (current source and voltage measurement) ganging function. Advantest expects to begin shipping PMU32E modules to customers by the first quarter of 2015.

Advantest Launches New AirLogger WM1010

Advantest Corporation has launched its new AirLogger WM1010, a wireless data logger for temperature evaluation in automotive R&D and production, as well as other industries. In the automotive industry, and many other manufacturing and R&D fields, temperature measurement and evaluation are normally performed with data loggers whose measurement units and data processing units are connected by cables. These products are industry standard, however set-up and teardown are troublesome and time-consuming giving rise to a demand for a more efficient method of temperature measurement. Additionally, recent advances have seen measurement targets getting smaller and more densely mounted. There is thus an urgent need for temperature logging that can support multiple measurement point and parallel measurement processing. Advantest's new AirLogger WM1010 offers a revolutionary solution to these problems with fully wireless operation. When its temperature measurement unit is mounted in a thermocouple-type data processing area, it wirelessly sends temperature measurement data to a PC for display and saving. It enables real-time simultaneous measurement of temperatures at multiple points, and supports a broad range of formerly difficult-to-measure measurement targets such as revolving tires and other moving objects. The WM1010 dramatically boosts customer process efficiency by freeing users from the constraints of working with loggers that require data cables. Advantest will launch its AirLogger series of products in January 2015.
