Semiconductor test foundry King Yuan Electronics Co. Ltd. (KYEC) King Yuan Electronics Co. Ltd adopted Verigy Ltd test equipment for its RF SoC line.

KYEC has ordered and installed several of Verigy's V93000 SoC testers with pin-scale digital cards

for testing high-volume semiconductors for RF-based mobile computing applications, including consumer electronics. Verigy's V93000 Port Scale RF system offers parallel test capability with high multi-site efficiency, delivering efficient throughput and low cost-of-test. Moreover, in support of KYEC's initial testing needs for RF-based semiconductors, these flexible systems may also be adapted to test graphics devices and mixed-signal ICs.

Each RF tester ordered features Verigy's pin-scale digital and analog cards, that optimize speed and accuracy of testing by enabling each pin to be flexibly and instantly configured to adapt to varying test needs. Furthermore, each pin gives both single-ended and differential I/O test capabilities well-suited for testing a wide range of interfaces. This permits the equipment to be matched pin-by-pin to the device under test, resulting in high equipment utilization and the low cost of test.

With installation completed, Verigy's V93000 platform is currently the only test equipment at KYEC with a full utilization rate. Using Verigy's pin-scale cards, each tester's performance may be fine-tuned for a specific type of IC, providing versatility to test a wide variety of semiconductors ranging from low-integration devices such as power amplifiers, tuners and transceivers up to high-integration RF devices containing integrated mixed-signal, digital, power management and embedded or stacked memory.

Verigy's VP of worldwide sales, service and support, Pascal Ronde says, "With this latest system installation, KYEC is now able to increase its RF SoC testing business with both IDMs (integrated device manufacturers) and fabless semiconductor companies at its facilities in Hsinchu and Chu-Bei, Taiwan."
