Advantest Introduces Production Model of Its EVA100 Measurement System for Sensors, Analog and Mixed-Signal ICs

TOKYO, JAPAN -- (Marketwired) -- Nov 05, 2015 -- Leading semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857) (NYSE: ATE) has introduced the newest model of its EVA100 measurement system, the high-throughput EVA100 Production Model designed for volume production of sensors, low-pin-count analog ICs and mixed-signal ICs. Fully compatible with the initial EVA100 system introduced last year, the new Production Model allows users to establish a standardized measurement environment from design evaluation through production, dramatically improving their products' time to market.

Booming markets for IoT-capable products, automotive electronics and smart appliances have increased the demand for high-performance analog ICs, mixed-signal ICs and sensors. Streamlining production times for these devices is critical, but many chipmakers unnecessarily expend valuable time and resources correlating test data because they use an assortment of measurement systems for design and production, each with varying performance levels and incompatible programming languages. Advantest's versatile EVA100 Production Model system offers a solution to these issues.

The EVA100 platform uses the same test sequences for both design and production measurements and has an intuitive GUI so no complicated programming language is needed. In addition, up to four of the testing units can be clustered to achieve the capacity needed for high-volume production testing. These features simplify operators' duties, increase throughput and reduce product lead times.

All essential test functions including analog-voltage and current-source testing are incorporated in the compact EVA100 Production Model. It contains a fast 100-Mbps pattern generator, digital I/O capability, an arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) and a 2-Gbps oscilloscope for sampling. In addition, serial buses facilitate board inspections and trimming for sensors. All measurement channels are precisely synchronized to ensure reliable, repeatable results for better yield.

"Since its launch in May 2014, our EVA100 platform has been widely adopted due to its ease of use, superior performance and high reproducibility," said Satoru Nagumo, managing executive officer at Advantest Corporation. "This new model brings these attributes to the production floor, further extending Advantest's long track record in electronic measurement technology."
