test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857) (NYSE: ATE)
has received multiple MPT3000 system orders from prominent
manufacturers of solid-state drives (SSDs). The new testers, just

combines Advantest's expertise in high-speed system-on-chip (SoC)
testing with state-of-the-art electronics architecture, including
proprietary hardware acceleration and performance up to 12 Gbps. The
system's multi-protocol capability and high parallelism enable full
performance testing of a variety of SSD form factors including half-and full-height PC cards, 2.5-inch drives, M.2 and devices with
customized form factors.  
Advantest will be showcasing the new MPT3000 system in its booth,
#614-615, at the Flash Memory Summit, August 5-7 in Santa Clara,
