advantest corp (6857) Details

Advantest Corporation manufactures and sells semiconductor and component test system products and mechatronics-related products. It operates through three segments: Semiconductor and Component Test System; Mechatronics System; and Services, Support and Others. The Semiconductor and Component Test System segment provides customers with test system products for the semiconductor industry and the electronic parts industry. This segment offers test systems for memory semiconductors; and test systems for non memory semiconductors, including test systems for system on a chip semiconductors, liquid crystal display driver integrated circuits, and semiconductors used in car electronics. The Mechatronics System segment focuses on peripheral devices to the semiconductor and component test systems. This segment offers test handlers applying mechatronics technologies, which handle semiconductor devices and automate testing, device interfaces with measured devices, and operations related to nano-technology. The Services, Support and Others segment provides customer solutions provided in connection with the Semiconductor and Component Test System and Mechatronics System segments, support services, and equipment lease business. The company also provides testing technology, application software, procurement, installation and warranty, training, and maintenance support services. It serves semiconductor manufacturers, foundries, and test houses in Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Singapore, the Americas, and Europe. Advantest Corporation was founded in 1954 and is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

Advantest Corporation Proposes Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation

Advantest Corporation resolved at the meeting of its board of directors to submit to its shareholders a proposal to amend its Articles of Incorporation. The proposal will be made at the Company's 73rd ordinary general meeting of shareholders (the Shareholders' Meeting) scheduled to be held on June 24, 2015.

Advantest Develops Semiconductor Circuit Analysis Terahertz Technology

Advantest Corporation announced that it has developed a technology utilizing short-pulse terahertz waves for analysis of electrical circuits. The technology has 2 major applications analysis of the transmission characteristics (S parameters) of devices using the sub-terahertz band (100GHz to 1THz), and characterization and location of failures in chip circuits (TDT/TDR). The new technology overcomes the technical obstacles and prohibitive cost of existing technologies, and will contribute significantly to the development and wider adoption of these devices. In high-frequency device development, it is crucial to evaluate the frequency characteristics of the overall system, including active device gain and input and output impedance, as well as the board and connectors. Part of this process is measurement of the reflection and transmission characteristics of the amplitude and phase of signals emitted, known as S-parameters or scattering parameters. However, existing network analyzers can only measure frequency ranges up to 100GHz wide at one time, so when the signal characteristics of broader ranges must be evaluated, engineers have to repeatedly change the configuration of their equipment and measure again.

Advantest Introduces New 28G OPM (28-Gigabit Optical Port Module)

Advantest Corporation has introduced its new 28G OPM (28-gigabit Optical Port Module), the company's first solution designed specifically for testing optical transceivers advanced semiconductor devices that transmit and receive data through optical fibers. By using fiber optics, these devices enable data transmissions over longer distances at faster speeds and lower power consumption than wire cables. This technology is used extensively in applications such as data centers, which manage the extremely high volumes of data transmissions used in mobile communications and cloud computing.
