Semiconductor Defect Density and Time-to-Market Improved with New Teradyne Toolset
NORTH READING, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Inc. (NYSE: TER) announces the release of the Oasis toolset,
designed to address the unique test challenges posed by complex
semiconductor devices, including applications processors, digital
baseband processors, RF transceivers and power management devices. These
devices have large, reusable IP blocks requiring hundreds of thousands
of tests and also have extremely aggressive time-to-market objectives.
Typically, to hit these targets, test solutions are developed by large
teams of test engineers who leverage as much information as possible
from chip design systems. Teradyne's (News - Alert) Oasis toolset enables faster test
program development and lowers defect escapes for these devices.
The Oasis toolset consists of three main tools, IG-Link, IG-Review and
IG-Diff, which complement the IG-XL platform.
IG-Link is a tet program management tool that vastly eliminates
time spent on test program integration during a typical project. The
tool simplifies collaborative development by automatically linking
program building blocks on the fly, to create unique program variants.
IG-Review is a test program review and auditing tool that helps
eliminate test program errors before they result in defect escapes in
production. IG-Review identifies mistakes that may result in longer test
times, incorrect binning or other quality issues. The tool also
generates reports for test program peer review and documentation.
IG-Diff is a test program comparison tool that helps test
engineers identify and document differences between test program
versions. Changes in test program data, patterns and code are resolved
for tests that are impacted. This allows test engineers to identify
inadvertent changes to the test program prior to committing their
The Oasis toolset has been released and is in use at multiple customers
for digital baseband, connectivity and power management devices.
"The Oasis toolset will help our users face the ever increasing
pressures to ramp devices as soon as samples are available with high
test coverage and high quality," said Roy Chorev, Software Marketing
Manager, Teradyne. "Through close collaboration with our customers we
have designed a tool set that expedites time to market while improving
