Advantest Kyushu Systems Introduces ADS1911 Analog Test System
Low-cost test for analog devices
Today's semiconductors are extremely diverse, ranging from multi-functional, high-pin-count devices such as the LSIs used in personal computers to single-function discrete devices such as transistors and diodes, as well as analog ICs, which have comparatively low pin counts. Analog ICs and discrete devices, used in large numbers in cellular phones, consumer electronics, game consoles, and automobile electronics, have especially low unit prices. The ADS1911 answers manufacturers' needs for a system that can deliver lower test costs for these devices.
ADS 1911 Key Features:
- Parallel Test of Up To 8 Discrete Devices & Analog ICs
In its module configuration, the ADS1911 can perform parallel test of up to 8 discrete devices and analog ICs, thus lowering test cost.
- Improved Yield for DC Test*
To ensure accurate DC test, the ADS1911 is equipped with a highly accurate DC calibration function. This allows for minimal performance gaps between multiple installed systems, improving yield and bringing down cost.
- User-Friendly Test Program Creation Tool Saves Time, Boosts Productivity
The ADS1911's test program creation tool allows selection of test parameters from pull-down menus. This simplified format eliminates the need for specialized programming languages and makes the creation of test programs quick and easy.
* DC test: measuring the DC characteristics of a DUT's input and output current, input and output voltage, power source, etc.
Target Devices: Commodity analog ICs, discrete devices, optical semiconductor devices, commodity logic ICs
