is a leading supplier of quality low-cost, high-volume production automatic test equipment to semiconductor manufacturers worldwide.
This combination of tools automates the bidirectional information sharing between electronic design automation (EDA) and automatic test equipment (ATE) required for scan diagnostics.
To maintain high fault coverage on large designs, a proportionately large number of scan-chains are required, resulting in high pin counts for scan testing and high costs for load boards for testing on Automatic Test Equipment (ATE).
The products also reduce overall design and test costs, by helping to reduce design iterations as well as the time and reloads on automatic test equipment (ATE).
