“Demand for higher-quality semiconductor devices that use advanced processes is increasing the complexity of semiconductor manufacturing—and only comprehensive test and analytics solutions can help address this,” said
As part of a greater technology ecosystem, Teradyne Archimedes integrates seamlessly with leading data analytics platforms, speeding time to analysis.
“Exensio Advanced Insights for Manufacturing is a secure, scalable, configurable, analytics and AI platform specifically designed to handle rapid decision-making in a high-volume production environment, including the edge deployment of Exensio AI inference engine,” said Said Akar, general manager, Exensio, PDF Solutions. “Teradyne Archimedes analytics solution extends the benefits of our system’s data and machine learning capabilities to Teradyne’s global customer base in automated semiconductor test.”
“The challenge of maintaining security and data integrity has never been more critical,” said
Secure Edge Solution
While rich in functionality, today’s analytics solutions employ diverse data formats, specifications, and interface requirements. Consequently, they require on-tester agents to achieve compatibility with automated test solutions, a paradigm that significantly increases support and application-engineering costs. Overhead from this approach, coupled with analytics solutions that also rely on the cloud, may slow down tester operations and expose critical test data. Moving data analytics to the system edge mitigates these vulnerabilities.
Teradyne UltraEdge2000, an integral part of the Archimedes analytics solution, is a secure, high-performance, parallel-compute platform that executes real-time analytics solutions with millisecond latency. It delivers a natively secure environment that performs data consumption and heavy computational processes in real-time at the edge of the network—reducing exposure to the security risks present with cloud-based solutions and on-tester agents. This approach ensures the safety of data, analytic models, and rule sets.
Support for Teradyne Testers
Semiconductor test operations on automated test equipment (ATE) have long produced large amounts of data for use during the validation and high-volume manufacturing test processes. Analytics solutions increasingly use this data for real-time analysis on the system edge, ultimately driving real-time ATE input and control to improve test yield, throughput, efficiency, and product quality.
Teradyne Archimedes analytics solution:
- is a real-time, open architecture that ensures best-in-class solutions are easy to deploy;
- provides access to a larger set of trusted and consistently structured data types, providing greater flexibility and ensuring data integrity;
- delivers a bi-directional data stream that enables in-situ, real-time data analytics, pushing learnings back to the tester for immediate test program optimizations that improve quality and yield; and
- is a natively secure environment that eliminates the need for on-tester agents and their accompanying security risks, enabling test engineers and their analytics solution partners to focus on improvements and optimizations, not on tester-infrastructure maintenance.
“Teradyne Archimedes analytics solution combines Teradyne’s expertise in rigorously testing the vast number of semiconductor devices that power today’s digital devices with the benefits of deep-learning data analytics at the platform edge,” added Mills. “The result saves our customers time and money with total manufacturing-level enhancements.”
