Teradyne, Inc. announced that Vimicro, a Chinese chip solution provider of digital imaging and communication technology to worldwide telecommunication, PC, mobile and consumer markets, has specified the J750 test system with the Mixed-Signal Option (MSO).
Vimicro will use Teradyne's J750 MSO to test a new audio processor device designed to provide high quality music ring tones and rich game sounds for mobile phones. In the competitive selection process, Teradyne was chosen based on the J750's high performance signal generation, capture and analysis capabilities and high parallel test which reduces the overall cost of test.
The J750's high-throughput parallel test capability provides as high as 95% parallel test efficiency for up to 32 devices. The zero footprint system delivers up to 1,024 I/O channels contained in a test head, and offers a suite of options, including the Converter Test Option, Memory Test Option, Redundancy Analysis, and Mixed Signal Option, that broaden the range of testing capabilities. The system also features IG-XL test software that combines the power and performance of the latest PC technology and Windows NT operating system with the familiarity of standard Windows productivity tools, such as Microsoft Excel and Visual Basic. The J750's small footprint and high parallel test throughput provide an economical approach to testing complex VLSI devices with embedded memory and analog cells.
