Advantest Introduces Industry's Highest Capability 3-in-1 Semiconductor Test Clock Module to Improve Yields and Save Time & Money in Testing High-Speed ICs
Module's Ability to Test All Variations of Clock Requirements Enables Greater Test Coverage in a Single System
With the faster input/output (I/O) speeds of today's digital and analog ICs, the clock requirements for testing these devices have become more stringent. To achieve the highest manufacturing yields, testing advanced semiconductors requires the ability to:
- source low jitter below 500 femto-seconds,
- deliver gigahertz clocking speeds,
- provide programmable duty cycles and
- offer the highest performance sine wave inputs to analog-to-digital converters (ADCs).
By using Advantest's new LJC16 module, customers can perform all necessary tests on one tool without needing multiple modules. This saves on capital expenses, reduces cycle times and enables greater test coverage with a single module.
"With this new three-in-one module, our T2000 platform becomes the most economical and capable system in the industry for testing high-speed digital and mixed-signal devices while offering cutting-edge jitter performance," said Jay Sakamoto, senior vice president of Advantest's Strategic Business Unit (SBU). "This solution is much more cost effective and versatile than other offerings on today's market, such as high-end testers burdened with multiple modules or incomplete test solutions without high-speed digital pins and low-jitter sources."

Smart Data für mehr Bewegung in der Logistik
Wenn eine Branche in Bewegung ist, dann die Logistik. Das Momentum entfaltet sich auch im Hinblick auf die Digitalisierung: Modernste IT-Systeme, autonome Fahrzeuge, smarte Zustellroboter – um nur einmal die Speerspitze ins Feld zu führen. Auf den ersten Blick unsichtbar bleiben jedoch die Datenströme, die sämtliche Prozesse begleiten. Dabei kann die Analyse und Auswertung von Daten aus Transporten im Rahmen einer Big-Data-Strategie ein entscheidender Treiber sein.Weiterlesen
