Teradyne, Inc. operates as a supplier of automatic test equipment worldwide. The company designs, develops, manufactures, and sells automatic test systems and solutions used to test semiconductors, wireless products, hard disk drives (HDDs), and circuit boards in the consumer electronics, wireless, automotive, industrial, computing, communications, and aerospace and defense industries. The company’s automatic test equipment products and services include semiconductor test (Semiconductor Test) systems; wireless test (Wireless Test) systems; and military/aerospace (Mil/Aero) test instrumentation and systems, storage test (Storage Test) systems, and circuit-board test and inspection (Commercial Board Test) systems (collectively these products represent ‘System Test’). The company has a customer base, which includes integrated device manufacturers (IDMs); outsourced semiconductor assembly and test providers (OSATs); wafer foundries; fabless companies that design and contract with others for the manufacture of integrated circuits; developers of wireless devices and consumer electronics; manufacturers of circuit boards; automotive suppliers; wireless product manufacturers; storage device manufacturers; and aerospace and military contractors. In 2013, the company acquired ZTEC Instruments Inc. (ZTEC), a supplier of modular wireless test instruments. The acquisition of ZTEC expands its Wireless Test segment into the design verification test of wireless components and chipsets. Segments The company has three operating segments: Semiconductor Test, Wireless Test, and System Test. The Semiconductor Test segment includes operations related to designing, manufacturing, and marketing semiconductor test products and services. The Wireless Test segment includes operations related to designing, manufacturing, and marketing wireless test products and services. The System Test segment includes operations related to designing, manufacturing, and marketing products and services for military/aerospace instrumentation test, storage test, and circuit-board test. Products Semiconductor Test The company designs, manufactures, sells, and supports Semiconductor Test products and services on a worldwide basis. The test systems that it provides are used both for wafer level and device package testing. These chips are used in automotive, industrial, communications, consumer, computer and electronic game applications, and others. Semiconductor Test products and services are sold to IDMs that integrate the fabrication of silicon wafers into their business; ‘Fabless’ companies that outsource the manufacturing of silicon wafers; ‘Foundries’ that cater to the processing and manufacturing of silicon wafers; and OSATs that provide test and assembly services for the final packaged devices to both Fabless companies and IDMs. The company’s J750 test system shares the IG-XL software environment with the family of FLEX Test Platform systems. The J750 is designed to address semiconductor devices, such as microcontrollers, which are central to the functionality of every consumer electronics product, from small appliances to automotive engine controllers. The company extended the J750 platform technology to create the IP750 Image Sensor test system. The IP750 is focused on testing image sensor devices used in digital cameras and other imaging products. In 2013, the company introduced the J750 Ex-HD, which includes system improvements and new high density instruments that enable the J750 test platform to provide higher test cell productivity. The J750 platform has an installed base of approximately 4,200 systems. The company’s acquisition of Nextest Systems Corporation expanded its product offerings to include the Magnum test platform. The Magnum products address the requirements of mass production test of memory devices, such as flash memory and dynamic random access memory (DRAM). Flash and DRAM memory are used core building blocks in modern electronic products finding application in consumer, industrial, and computing equipment. Magnum II is the newest member of the family. The Magnum platform has an installed base of approxim
