Teradyne, Inc. (NYSE: TER) announced that Unisem has selected and ordered the J750-LitePoint product for testing wireless connectivity semiconductor devices. Teradyne installed the system at Unisem’s test facility in Chengdu, China in March 2014.
Teradyne has shipped more than 4,000 J750 family systems, delivering leading cost-of-test economics for over 150 fabless and IDM semiconductor companies in low-cost consumer SOC markets. Now, with the addition of LitePoint® instruments available as an upgrade to existing J750 systems, Teradyne enables RF test capability with performance that is well aligned with the low-cost wireless connectivity and cellular SOC market. The platform leverages LitePoint's IQxel-M™ and IQxstream® connectivity and cellular test products, combined with LitePoint's modulation and analysis software, to offer J750 customers with a common platform for SOC production test and final product verification.
“We selected the J750-LitePoint to cover the growing demand for testing wireless connectivity devices,” said Tan Kim Heng, senior VP (Technology & Materials) of Unisem. “Incorporating LitePoint test instrumentation onto our existing fleet of J750 systems provides Fabless and IDM semiconductor companies with a cost-effective alternative for testing wireless stand-alone and microcontroller products. We have already aligned our first J750-LitePoint platform to test smart grid devices, and are now well positioned to serve the expanding production test needs of the mobile connectivity market."
“Teradyne is pleased to partner with Unisem to offer the J750-LitePoint wireless test product offering,” said Jason Zee, general manager of Teradyne's Consumer Business Unit. “We're confident that the J750-LitePoint system will enable Unisem to serve the technical and economic requirements of its mobile connectivity customers."
