Xcerra announced that it has shipped the 500th Diamondx test system, reaching a critical milestone for their system-on-a-chip (SOC) test system. It was delivered to Microchip Technology, the top third supplier of microcontrollers. They will add to their installed base of testers in support of high volume production test of devices supplied into the automotive, consumer and industrial markets.
The capabilities incorporates the latest technology for delivering the lowest cost of test while offering instrumentation that can support a wide range of performance requirements, including precision analog, high speed Serdes digital and mmWave RF. The architecture of the system has unique capabilities, such as an Integrated Multi-System Architecture, or IMA, that allows customers to better match the test requirements of a device with the cost profile of the test system.
Ganesh Moorthy, President and Chief Operating Officer at Microchip, commented,”Diamondx is not only used for testing microcontrollers, we also rely on the system for high volume manufacturing test of our wireless, networking (USB, Ethernet, MOST, etc.), touch controller and other mixed-signal products. Xcerra provides outstanding technical support in all phases of test development and high volume production test, and when combined with the economics delivered, this creates a powerful combination.“
David Tacelli, President and Chief Executive Officer for Xcerra, commented, “Our goal is to develop the semiconductor test solutions that deliver a powerful combination of performance and economic value complemented by world-class customer support. The growing adoption of the Diamondx by top tier semiconductor suppliers is validation that our strategy is succeeding.”
