Advantest Corporation Develops New Hadatomo Photoacoustic Microscope

Advantest Corporation announced that it has developed a new photoacoustic microscope that enables non-invasive imaging of blood vessels in the dermis to a depth of 3mm. Advantest’s new Hadatomo photoacoustic microscope addresses these drawbacks, offering researchers a thoroughly non-invasive process, with an ability to easily reference and compare historical results. This new evaluation method is poised to contribute to further advances in regenerative medicine, dermatology, and plastic surgery. Product Features: Advantest has been developing photoacoustic technology since 2010. The company’s independently developed sensors and electrical circuits permit high-speed measurement without exceeding the MPE (maximum permissible exposure) guidelines for exposure of skin to a light source. The new Hadatomo offers a measurement area of 4 mm x 4 mm x 3 mm (depth) and a maximum speed of 20 second /scan. Proprietary algorithms process the data obtained through dedicated software, and construct 2D and 3D images in quasi-real time. Moreover, the measurement process requires no setup beyond the application of ultrasound gel to the area to be measured. The tool’s flexible arm enables measurement to be performed with ease in various environments. Specifications: System Model: WEL5100; Wavelength: 532 nm (less than the MPE for optical radiation); Measurement time: 10 to 80 s depending on the specifics of each case; Measurement area: 4mm X 4mm X 3mm (depth); Dimensions (approx.): 540mm(W) x 545(D)mm x 1546mm(H); and Weight: >110 kg. Advantest is evaluating a range of prototypes in collaboration with researchers in plastic surgery and dermatology. The company expects to launch the new photoacoustic microscope in the Japanese market in October 2015 with a global roll out to follow.

Advantest Corporation Enters into Strategic Partnership with Universal Scientific Industrial Shanghai Co., Ltd

Advantest Corporation has entered into a strategic partnership with Universal Scientific Industrial Shanghai Co., Ltd., to offer outsourced assembly and test, or OSAT, services to solid-state drives, or SSD, market. This collaboration allows SSD manufacturers to test their designs and devices on the advanced MPT3000 test platform while minimizing up-front capital investment by outsourcing test activities to USI's factory in Shanghai, China. The availability of cost-optimized test services designed specifically for SSDs allows design companies to optimize their investments and focus their resources on product development early in their product lifecycles. Furthermore, it provides them with the pathway to quickly and easily scale up their test capacity from initial device qualification to high-volume production. Outsourced assembly and test houses in the semiconductor industry provide a proven and highly successful business model from which the SSD industry can benefit. Many SSD vendors with NAND Flash and system-on-chip-based controller experience have worked with OSATs on other products and recognize how such partnerships help them to achieve both their engineering and production goals. The company has extensive experience in designing, developing, manufacturing and testing SSDs. Its products include SATA, SAS and PCIe (AHCI and NVMe) SSDs shipping in high volume to both the client and enterprise markets.

Advantest Corporation Introduces the Fast Fully Integrated Memory Test Card, the HSM16G

Advantest Corporation announced that it has introduced the fast fully integrated memory test card, the HSM16G. The new card extends the high-speed testing capabilities of the company's V93000 HSM series of testers to native 16 gigabits per second (Gbps) for at-speed testing of ultra-fast memory ICs. This new product launch makes Advantest the first automatic test equipment (ATE) supplier to provide an integrated test solution that supports device engineering, debugging and volume production of today's high speed GDDR5 and future GDDR5X ICs, with parallel data busses up to 16 Gbps. The new HSM16G card delivers a complete range of memory test capabilities, including per-pin algorithmic pattern generation to test any kind of fault algorithm, and provides fail bitmap capture. A precision per-pin clock with less than 1 picosecond jitter enables the industry's most accurate jitter measurements. Along with per-pin-based arbitrary jitter modulation for device characterization and stress test as well as a set of integrated analysis tools, the card provides a comprehensive measurement suite for thorough device characterization. Programmable equalization allows for cable loss compensation and rise time control to support the best signal integrity in both engineering and production. Per-pin embedded searches for rapid alignment to the center of the data eye, fast eye measurements to screen for both eye height and eye width, and an integrated time measurement unit (TMU) for jitter measurements provide a set of key volume-production features. For memory ICs with serial bus interfaces such as PCI Express (PCIe) and Universal Flash Storage (UFS), the SM16G card offers the comprehensive capability for physical layer test (PHY characterization). This enables the card to cover all memory devices with high-speed serial interfaces or high-speed parallel memory buses. Fully compatible with the V93000 HSM series' hardware and software, the HSM16G card can be factory installed or retrofit onto a customer's existing base of installed testers. It provides a seamless extendibility by allowing all existing test programs for HSM testers to be re-used with minimal adaption effort. This requires only a small evolutionary increment for users' application knowledge, but provides a doubling in high-speed testing for DRAM devices. The card's 16-Gbps operating speed is faster than any other system on the market. To test fast ICs, other testers must compensate by performing complex multiplexing using two 10-Gbps channels with add-on solutions to reach the higher speeds needed. Because of the subsequent multiplexing, APG pattern generation is significantly restricted and only a limited feature set is available for characterization and debugging. The HSM16G's native 16-Gbps speed allows it to avoid these constraints. When equipped with the fully integrated HSM16G card, the V93000 platform offers the broadest capabilities available in the high-speed memory test market.
