Advantest to Showcase SOC, Nanotech and Cloud Testing Platforms at SEMICON Europa 2013

Booth to Feature New, Leading-Edge CloudTestingTM Solution

(PresseBox) (Munich, ) Leading semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857, NYSE: ATE) will showcase its suite of semiconductor solutions, ranging from nanotechnology electron beam (EB) lithography to automatic test equipment and cloud testing services at the SEMICON Europa 2013 trade show, stand #1.207, Hall 1, October 8-10 in Dresden, Germany.

Visitors will learn how to lower the cost of test and boost productivity for a variety of applications, including system-on-chip (SOC) and system-in-package (SiP) devices as well as advanced wafer-level chip-scale packages (WLCSPs). Additionally, Advantest will highlight an industry-first cloud testing solution ideal for semiconductor design, electronic component R&D, prototype evaluation, failure analysis and academic research. The company will also display next-generation nanotechnology EB lithography for nano-patterning and defect review as well as its multi-vision 3D metrology technologies.

"For the first time at SEMICON Europa, Advantest will have dedicated displays for its nanotech and cloud testing technologies," said Josef Schraetzenstaller, managing director and CEO of Advantest Europe. "These new additions align with the company's strategic, proactive expansion into new markets, while continuing to invest in ATE solutions."
