Verigy, Cadence Host Seminars for Improving Yield

Verigy (NASDAQ:VRGY), a leading semiconductor test company, and Cadence Design Systems, Inc., a leader in global electronic-design innovation, are hosting a seminar series for semiconductor designers and manufacturers on how to improve product yield economics. This series of half-day seminars will include presentations by Cadence and Verigy representatives on technologies and techniques for yield learning that optimize data gathering for improved throughput and accuracy of diagnosis, as well as provide methods to address yield issues earlier in the process. Product engineers and failure analysis engineers will gain valuable insight on techniques for enabling fast product ramps, while engineering managers and executives will learn how to improve cost reduction through yield learning.

“With the recent addition of Inovys yield learning tools, Verigy’s test solutions now provide valuable, actionable information that can inform the design process to increase entitled yield,” said Debbora Ahlgren, vice president and chief marketing officer, Verigy. “This seminar is an exciting opportunity for us to collaborate with one of the leaders in electronic design automation to provide our joint customers with practical information for increasing yield.”

“Cadence has an expansive portfolio of design for manufacturing solutions with a strong focus on post-silicon diagnostic and analysis,” said Nitin Deo, DFM group marketing director at Cadence. “As this seminar series demonstrates, partnering with Verigy allows us to optimize our DFM flow to better serve our mutual customers so they can begin implementing this powerful architecture in their own environments.”
