Credence Systems Corp., a provider of solutions from design-to-production tests, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Optonics Inc., a supplier of integrated solutions for emission-based optical diagnostics and failure analysis (FA). This acquisition is expected to enable Credence expand its portfolio of design-to-production test solutions in the areas of advanced silicon debug and characterization and device failure analysis.

"Advanced IC packaging technology is driving the need for more sophisticated backside optical diagnostic solutions such as Optonics' EmiScope," said Dr. Israel Niv, founder, president and CEO of Optonics. "We believe the combination of the EmiScope with Credence's IMS Vanguard and Gemini MS engineering validation testers will deliver the most powerful diagnostic integrated package at first silicon, design optimization and during failure analysis activities."
