NES ZIONA, Israel, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

OptimalTest, the leader in enterprise-wide test management solutions, today
announced that Marvell has agreed to use its Test Management Software Solution
to expand the implementation of OptimalTest solutions throughout Marvell's
organization and global supply chain. This decision came after the successful
completion of a pilot project using OptimalTest's solutions, in which Marvell
realized significant results in yield and utilization. The worldwide
implementation includes both wafer sort and final test operations.

"We are delighted to partner with Marvell, one of the top semiconductor
companies and a global force in the industry, as they continue to adopt the
Optimal Enterprise solution worldwide and across their entire fleet of
testers," said Dan Glotter, CEO and president of OptimalTest. "Forward-looking
companies like Marvell now realize that test management solutions are key to
gaining significant, not just incremental, improvements in their test
operations." 

Developed to deliver integrated test management and optimization of products,
processes and operations throughout globally dispersed semiconductor
ecosystems, OptimalTest's solutions improve yields, reduce test times and
accelerate early detection of testing issues, thus enabling strong ROI.
Marvell's deployment will include a combination of OptimalTest's utilization
and early detection expert-system-based solutions integrated across the test
process, which will help to establish a common language across all
departments, in addition to increasing yield and quality.

"With the OT toolset, we were able to collect and analyze data concerning
equipment utilization and yield losses as a result of equipment malfunctions
and implement corrective actions immediately. We concluded that in order to
more tightly manage our supply chain, we had to execute a full enterprise
implementation of the toolset," said Dr. Albert Wu, vice president of
operations at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc.
