Unisem installs Verigy tester for wireless products

September 7, 2011 – BUSINESS WIRE — Unisem installed a V93000 Port Scale RF tester from Verigy, an Advantest Group company (TSE:6857, NYSE:ATE), at its European test development center in Wales. Unisem will test and develop wireless radio frequency (RF) and complex mixed-signal semiconductors on the test platform.

The Verigy V93000 Port Scale RF system suits high-volume testing of wireless devices for mobile computing applications including consumer electronics. It features parallel test capability with high multi-site efficiency, and Verigys pin-scale digital cards. Unisem can utilize the tester for low-integration devices such as power amplifiers, tuners and transceivers up to high-integration RF devices containing integrated mixed-signal, digital, power management and embedded or stacked memory.

The tester enables Unisem to pursue "new markets" in Europe and with its Asia factories, said Andy Perry, general manager, Unisem Europe. The Wales facility is Unisem’s European development center for production-proofing semiconductor assembly and test strategies. Customers can then ramp to high-volume in Unisem’s Asia factories as required.

Verigy provides advanced semiconductor test systems for design validation, characterization, and high-volume manufacturing test. Additional information about Verigy, an Advantest Group company, can be found at www.verigy.com. Information about Advantest can be found at www.advantest.com.

Unisem is a global semiconductor assembly and test services (SATS) provider offering wafer bumping, wafer probing, wafer grinding, a wide range of leadframe and substrate IC packaging, wafer-level CSP and RF, analog, digital and mixed-signal test services and turnkey services.
