Verigy wins Freescale test equipment order

April 6, 20111 – MarketwireVerigy (NASDAQ: VRGY), semiconductor test provider, won new business with Freescale Semiconductor’s Networking and Multimedia Group (NMG), which has placed a volume order for Verigy’s V93000 scalable test platform to use in testing select QorIQ PowerPC communications microprocessors, based on Power Architecture technology.

Freescale’s NMG conducted an extensive evaluation of the V93000 platform in which comparative performance testing was done using a multi-core, high-speed networking device. NMG found that the V93000’s tester-per-pin architecture was cost effective and reduced testing cycle times.

The scalability and flexibility of the V93000 platform enables NMG to use Verigy’s testers on some QorIQ processors as well as select products incorporating DDR III and PCIE II, adding versatility to the chipmaker’s in-house testing resources.

"Our evaluation found that the V93000 delivered an advanced technical solution with a low cost of test," said Bill McKean, chief procurement officer for Freescale. "Verigy’s knowledge and experience were also critical to our decision."

The V93000 platform has the flexibility to test a wide range of semiconductor devices used in a variety of end products, from digital televisions to wireless communication devices. The tester claims accuracy and high throughput. The V93000 platform has been used in developing and producing multiple generations of logic and high-speed memory ICs at integrated device manufacturers (IDMs), fabless companies, outsource assembly and testing (OSAT) houses, and foundries.

Verigy provides advanced semiconductor test systems for design validation, characterization, and high-volume manufacturing test. Additional information about Verigy can be found at
