Semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation has received a volume-purchase order for its V93000 testers from a leading Chinese designer of application-specific ICs (ASICs). The Beijing-based company will add the new testers to its existing installed base of more than 60 V93000 systems and use them in testing its current products as well as developing customized semiconductors for neural-network applications, including artificial intelligence (AI).
"This customer is focused on leveraging its IC-design expertise to accelerate deep learning with innovative, cost-effective and energy-efficient solutions," said Hans-Juergen Wagner, CEO of Advantest Europe. "In addition to working with them, Advantest also provides test solutions to companies that manufacture microprocessors, GPUs and custom devices that are used in today's AI applications. Through our many global partnerships and activities, we are further extending our leadership to provide the best test solutions in this fast-growing market."
At the SEMICON China trade show, running March 14-16 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Advantest will exhibit 12 of its advanced products and services for the Chinese semiconductor market in booth #4425, Hall N4. An expert in testing chips for AI applications will be available in the booth to talk with visiting customers. In addition, product displays will include the V93000 platform, which provides the industry's broadest test coverage for leading-edge semiconductors. When equipped with Wave Scale MX and Wave Scale RF channel cards, the V93000 can achieve unprecedented parallelism and throughput, reducing the overall cost of test and pioneering new capabilities to test future generations of IC designs.
