Advantest's V93000 Smart Scale Selected as Primary Test System by HiSilicon 
Technologies in Shenzhen, China 
ASIC Maker Will Use Advantest's Tester in Engineering and Production
of All Its Semiconductor Products 
TOKYO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/13 --  Leading semiconductor test
equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857) (NYSE: ATE) has
installed a V93000 Smart Scale(TM) tester at HiSilicon Technologies
Co., Ltd., a Chinese producer of application-specific integrated
circuits (ASICs) and other chipsets for communication networks and
digital media, which will use the system in developing and
manufacturing ICs for telecommunication networks, wireless terminals,
digital media and other mass-market applications. HiSilicon's
installation of Smart Scale systems expands its installed base of
V93000 testers, making it the primary automatic test equipment (ATE)
platform for all of its products. 
"In researching competitive testers on the market, we identified the
V93000 Smart Scale system as the most capable for testing a broad
variety of devices as well as delivering the best performance, the
lowest COT (cost of test) and the maximum yield," said Lin Jianjun,
testing manager at HiSilicon. "In addition, both HiSilicon and our
OSAT (outsourced semiconductor assembly and test) partners put high
value on Advantest's service and applications support as we implement
this test solution." 
With today's semiconductors operating at ever higher speeds,
performance and pin counts, test systems must offer greater
functionality while maintaining low cost of test. The V93000 Smart
Scale platform provides industry-leading scalability and combines the
highest speed digital test, precision analog and RF measurement in a
single test system. In addition to achieving the lowest-cost
solutions for the consumer market, this enables high-end test
solutions including protocol communication and data rates of up to
12.8Gbps with 16Gbps in the near future. 
The V93000 Smart Scale platform's capabilities and instruments are
universally available on all classes of V93000 testers. This allows
the use of identical loadboards in engineering and production for
different tester configurations, effectively minimizing the cost of
test and capital expenditure. Other benefits include optimal asset
utilization, faster time to market due to higher engineering
efficiency and greater flexibility to quickly answer roadmap
uncertainties.
