Cascade Microtech's MeasureOne(TM) Best-of-Breed Solutions Program Joined by Keysight Technologies; Companies Collaborate to Give Customers Faster Time to First Measurement
October 23, 2014
Cascade Microtech, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCD), a leading supplier of solutions that enable precision measurements of integrated circuits at the wafer level, today announced Keysight Technologies, Inc. as a MeasureOne(TM) solution partner. MeasureOne is a framework for collaboration with best-of-breed partners to offer test and measurement solutions with validated performance. MeasureOne collaborations offer customers access to expertise enabling faster time to first measurement -- accelerating time to market. The specification of a test system to perform wafer-level measurements can be challenging when equipment is sourced from multiple suppliers. The configuration must be proven on-site before the first device can be tested. Wafer probers and other components, including software controls, must be integrated. Customers often need to correlate data and measurement accuracy between different locations. It can take weeks, or even months, to execute the first measurements. Cascade Microtech, with MeasureOne partner Keysight Technologies, addresses these challenges by providing a fully integrated wafer-level measurement solution with guaranteed system configuration, installation and support.
