Verigy Wins Best Supplier Award From STATS ChipPAC for Fourth Year in a Row

CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - Semiconductor test equipment supplier Verigy, an Advantest Group company (TSE: 6857) (NYSE: ATE), has received its fourth consecutive Best Supplier Award from Singapore-based STATS ChipPAC Ltd. (SGX-ST: STATSChP), a leading provider of semiconductor packaging design, assembly, test and distribution solutions. Verigy has won this honor each year since the award's creation in 2007.

STATS ChipPAC's Best Supplier Award recognizes materials and equipment suppliers for overall best-in-class performance in cost, quality, delivery, technology, service and support.

"The flexibility of Verigy's V93000 test platform allows us to reconfigure and redeploy our semiconductor testing resources as business dynamics evolve," said Wan Choong Hoe, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of STATS ChipPAC. "We see opportunities for growth as the industry moves toward the convergence of communications, consumer and computing platforms. Our broad capabilities to provide integrated supply chain solutions and flexible, cost effective test platforms including Verigy's new V93000 Smart Scale strengthen our commitment to provide leading and comprehensive services to support growth and expand value to our customers."

"We're proud to be recognized again this year for the value that Verigy contributes to STATS ChipPAC's business strategy," said Pascal Ronde, executive vice president of worldwide sales, service and support at Verigy. "We look forward to continuing our partnership by providing STATS ChipPAC with a broad range of high-throughput, high-performance testing capabilities."

The scalable V93000 platform is available in several configurations to optimize performance and economies in testing wireless communication ICs, digital consumer devices, microprocessors, graphics processors, high speed interfaces, high-speed memories and many more. To meet customers' emerging needs, Verigy recently extended this product family by introducing its new V93000 Smart Scale™ Generation of scalable test systems, which is winning market acceptance with customers including STATS ChipPAC. Designed for testing at the 28 nm design node and beyond as well as 3D semiconductor device architectures, the V93000 Smart Scale Generation reduces the cost of test while delivering greater capabilities in parallel testing and the industry's first full-performance test solution at wafer sort. Smart Scale systems can accommodate twice as many channels per card as previous V93000 cards while simultaneously doubling testing speeds. These advanced capabilities combined with industry-leading digital performance, high-speed I/O flexibility, system-like stress testing, protocol engine per pin, real-time memory emulation, SmartLoop™ per-pin technology and enhanced software functionalities enable the new V93000 Smart Scale Generation to increase test coverage, improve time-to-market and deliver superior test economics.
