Keithley Webcast Seminar Explores how to Avoid Parallel Test Implementation Pitfalls

(PresseBox) ( Cleveland, Ohio, )
Keithley Instruments, Inc. (NYSE:KEI), a world leader in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, will broadcast a webcast seminar titled "Practical Tips and Tricks for Avoiding Common Pitfalls when Implementing Parallel Test" on Thursday, March 26, 2009. This one-hour seminar will offer guidance on migrating from sequential test to parallel test and explore ways to maximize resource utilization, balance system controller duties efficiently, and manage control of test timing and sequencing.

When their test capacity needs increase, production test engineers often look to parallel test for a solution. However, they may not achieve their hoped-for throughput gains if they neglect to identify throughput limiters, understand test structure interdependencies, and consider data management. Participants in this seminar will learn how to optimize existing test resources to increase throughput, where to add resources to maximize those gains, and alternatives to a traditional single system controller to eliminate bottlenecks in data management and resource configuration. The seminar will also cover how to use triggering to achieve critical test sequence timing and selection criteria for test resources that maximize parallel test investment. The event will conclude with a text-based Q&A session.

This seminar is recommended for test engineers and test engineering managers who are contemplating a move to parallel test. The content is appropriate for engineers working with on-wafer or packaged devices.
