Wentworth Laboratories Announces Accumax®Direct Integrated Probe Solution for Verigy V93000 Direct-Probe™

BROOKFIELD, CT--(Marketwire - Jun 16, 2011) - Wentworth Laboratories, Inc., a pioneer and global manufacturer of probe card and probing equipment for semiconductor test, today announced the qualification of Wentworth Accumax®Direct integrated probe solution with the Verigy (NASDAQ: VRGY) Direct-Probe™ option for the V93000 PinScale Test System. Accumax®Direct addresses some of the most severe parameters encountered during volume test of flip chip bumped devices such as microprocessor units (MPUs), graphics processing units (GPUs) and System on Chip (SoC) devices. Wentworth's integrated docking design offers unmatched cost of ownership advantages derived from Wentworth's proprietary Saber®Probe contact technology, and contributes to enhanced data mining during high volume test that is integral to improving yield and profitability.

Accumax®Direct offers improved electrical connectivity between the device-under-test (DUT) and the test system, enabling more immediate data interpretation and corrective measures earlier in the sort process -- helping to deliver improved output while reducing cost. The proprietary design of Accumax®Direct utilizes a field replaceable and self-aligning multiple layer ceramic (MLC) or multiple layer organic (MLO) 'space transformer' to integrate an Accumax® vertical probe card with a performance interface board (PIB)/load board. The design utilized by Accumax®Direct can also accommodate Wentworth Megamax® vertical probe cards for extreme power test scenarios.

"We evaluated several technical factors affecting performance probe during the qualification process," said Hans-Juergen Wagner, Verigy executive vice president of SOC Test. "Wentworth Accumax®Direct is V93000 Direct-Probe™ ready solution and we welcome Wentworth as a partner."

"With Accumax®Direct, Wentworth envisioned and brought to market an exceptionally functional and yet simple direct dock design that met Verigy's technical requirements and exceeded their expectations," said Steve Evans, Wentworth chief executive officer. "Wentworth views this product as a means to higher frequency and enhanced signal fidelity at probe."
