Toyota Motor Corporation Selects Advantest's T2000 Integrated Power Device Test Solution for Semiconductor Evaluation and Mass

Toyota Motor Corporation Selects Advantest's T2000 Integrated Power Device Test 
Solution for Semiconductor Evaluation and Mass Production 
TOKYO, JAPAN -- (Marketwired) -- 12/02/13 --  Leading semiconductor
test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857) (NYSE: ATE)
has installed its T2000 Integrated Power Device Test Solution (IPS)
at Toyota Motor Corporation for evaluating and mass-producing
integrated power ICs used in next-generation hybrid cars. 
Today's vehicles rely on semiconductors for engine control,
navigation and an increasing number of other functions, causing the
number of ICs used in vehicles to grow rapidly. With its mission of
"creating ever-better cars," Toyota has been searching for a
high-quality semiconductor test solution to ensure that its
vehicle-mounted ICs have the increased reliability and expanded
productivity that the car maker needs. 
Toyota selected the T2000 IPS unit as an essential test system to
enhance the safety and reliability of vehicle-mounted devices.
Advantest's test solution demonstrated the flexibility, high
performance and functionality to meet Toyota's quality requirements
for both current and next-generation semiconductor devices. 
The T2000 IPS is an optimal test solution for automotive devices,
power-management ICs and power-switching devices. It can test an
industry-leading number of devices in parallel by integrating various
measurement resources in a single module and minimizing peripheral
circuits. This dramatically reduces waiting time compared to existing
systems. In addition, the T2000 IPS includes all necessary elements
-- such as the T2000 platform's improved reliability, measurement
accuracy and high-voltage support -- in a single high-level test
"Our high-accuracy integrated power IC measurement architecture and
the low cost of test achieved by our highly parallel operation are
greatly valued by Toyota, the world's leading automotive company,"
said Satoru Nagumo, executive vice president of Advantest
