Teradyne Achieves China Sales Milestone as it Ships 4000th Eagle Test System to MPS Inc.

NORTH READING, Mass., March 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teradyne, Inc. (NASDAQ:TER), a leading supplier of automated test solutions, announced it has shipped its 4000th Eagle Test System, hitting a new sales success milestone for its Eagle Test System (ETS) automatic test equipment in China.

MPS Inc., a high-growth, linear, power and automotive semiconductor supplier with multiple locations in China, purchased the milestone system, an ETS-88™.

The ETS-88 is an optimal platform for testing a wide variety of devices including simple analog, high precision, high voltage, high current / power, automotive, video, audio, complex mixed-signal, as well as emerging power processes like SiC and GaN. The test system hardware is designed to provide independent floating resources per site to avoid resource sharing across sites while improving site-to-site isolation and measurement accuracy.

The flexible configuration of the ETS-88 allows MPS to configure its test cells in traditional multisite or index parallel test setup.

“MPS has extensively usedthe Eagle testers since 2009 and has built up a fleet of over 150 systems, the largest of any fabless company,” said Deming Xiao, President of MPS Asia Operations. “The ETS-88 is clearly the industry's preferred platform for power linear and automotive test because of its small footprint, low cost of ownership and excellent throughput. We are pleased to take delivery of the 4000th Eagle tester. The ETS-88 has higher throughput and strong backward compatibility which can be used for existing Eagle applications, and also enables us to test today’s more complex devices to meet the ever-increasing customers’ requirements.“

Eagle Test System’s user-friendly debugging tools and common operating environment across all platforms are key enablers for fast time to market. The ETS-88 delivers the highest parallel test efficiencies of 99.9 percent across sectors, delivering the highest throughput and lowest cost-of-test for high site count solutions.

“Teradyne Eagle Test products are widely adopted in linear, power and automotive segments because our patented SmartPin resources with floating ground system architectures improve throughput and yield, translating to lowest cost-of-test,” said Dominic Viens, Senior Director Product Management at Teradyne. “We are honored to ship the 4000th Eagle Test System to MPS as this important sales milestone further validates Teradyne’s commitment to China and its Chinese manufacturing and testing services partners.”

Teradyne began manufacturing its automatic test equipment in China in 2007. Since then, the company has continued to partner with local outsourced assembly and test companies to support the growth of the China semiconductor industry.
