Presto Engineering Purchases Inovys Ocelot ZFP to Provide Advanced Test Services to Semiconductor Manufacturers

Inovys ZFP Provides Powerful Analysis Tools to Increase Customer Productivity

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - November 1, 2007) - Inovys Corporation, a leading provider of yield, failure analysis and test solutions for the semiconductor industry, announced today that Presto Engineering, Inc., a provider of product engineering services to the semiconductor industry, has purchased the Inovys Ocelot Zero Foot Print (ZFP) for testing of its customer's complex devices. The Inovys ZFP allows Presto Engineering to add an extremely powerful analysis tool, with structural and scan test capabilities, to its growing test floor. The Inovys ZFP combines the best elements of Design For Test (DFT), while enabling customers to bridge failures to the physical defect and reduce typical design debug from weeks to hours. Engineered around the IEEE 1450 standard STIL (standard test interface language), the Inovys ZFP is simple to use, has a short learning curve, and enables new users to typically be productive in one day. The first project on the Inovys ZFP has already been effectively completed and succeeded in shaving weeks from the customer's projected timeline.

"The Inovys Ocelot ZFP is a powerful tool that offers the flexibility that we need to handle the variety of projects we receive from our multiple customers," commented Michel Villemain, CEO, Presto Engineering. "Adding the Inovys ZFP to our suite of test and failure analysis capabilities further enhances our ability to help semiconductor manufacturers maximize the speed and efficiency and minimize the cost of bringing new products to market."

"Inovys understands that analytical engineering operations like Presto attract a broad range of customers and applications," said Paul Sakamoto, president and CEO, Inovys Corporation. "We are pleased to be working with Presto Engineering to provide a multifunctional facility that gives customers access to the most innovative products and solutions in the world, all the while enabling their increased productivity and continued success."
