Verigy Wins New Business From Networking and Multimedia Group at Continuing Customer Freescale Semiconductor

Customer's Evaluation Shows Cost and Throughput Advantages of Verigy's Flagship Test Platform

CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) -  Verigy (NASDAQ: VRGY), a premier semiconductor test company, has won new business with Freescale Semiconductor's Networking and Multimedia Group (NMG), which has placed a volume order for Verigy's V93000 scalable test platform to use in testing select QorIQ™ PowerPC communications microprocessors, based on Power Architecture technology.

Freescale's NMG conducted an extensive evaluation of the V93000 platform in which comparative performance testing was done using a multi-core, high-speed networking device. NMG found that the V93000's tester-per-pin architecture was cost effective and reduced testing cycle times.

The scalability and flexibility of the V93000 platform enables NMG to use Verigy's testers on some QorIQ processors as well as select products incorporating DDR III and PCIE II, adding versatility to the chipmaker's in-house testing resources.

"Our evaluation found that the V93000 delivered an advanced technical solution with a low cost of test," said Bill McKean, Chief Procurement Officer for Freescale. "Verigy's knowledge and experience were also critical to our decision."

"This new business with Freescale's Networking and Multimedia Group demonstrates our V93000 platform's versatility and ability to deliver measurable productivity improvements to new and continuing customers," said Pascal Rondé, executive vice president of sales, service and support for Verigy. "We're proud to have them as a customer, adding to Freescale's global installed base of more than fifty V93000 testers."

The V93000 platform has the flexibility to test a wide range of semiconductor devices used in a variety of end products, from digital televisions to wireless communication devices. The tester's accuracy and high throughput enable customers to quickly ramp to production, shortening their time to market. For more than a decade, the V93000 platform has been used in developing and producing multiple generations of logic and high-speed memory ICs at integrated device manufacturers (IDMs), fabless companies, outsource assembly and testing (OSAT) houses, and foundries worldwide.
