The T6500 series of SoC test system from Advantest Corp. is able to simultaneously test up to eight devices and is targeted at testing high-speed ASICs, SoCs, and microprocessor units.

The T6500 Series includes the T6575 tester (125MHz to 500MHz), the T6565 (62.5MHz to 250MHz), and the T6535 (31.25MHz to 125MHz). Lower-end systems may be upgraded to higher test speeds by simply replacing the master clock card at the test station.

The ATE also features 512 digital pins and is planned to be equipped with wideband video arbitrary waveform generators and digitizers, precision audio AWGs and digitizers, and a 1ps resolution timing measurement unit. An RF option is also being mulled by the company for testing Bluetooth and 802.11 devices.

For high-speed serial test requirements, the company's Serdes HIFIX option is available for each family member to allows testing of high-speed serial ports to 3.2GHz, either via direct drive and receive ports, or loopback. For SONET requirements, Advantest's D3177 bit error rate and jitter analysis tool may be added.
