Advantest selects Rohde & Schwarz to verify high-speed SoC testers

Advantest Corp. with headquarters in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan, has selected the R&S RTP high-performance oscilloscope for mass production evaluation of high speed SoC testers. The R&S RTP is part of Advantest’s continuous efforts to improve quality and was a key factor in updating the company’s verification environment to meet latest requirements. The decision for Rohde & Schwarz indicates that the long-term relationship between Advantest and Rohde & Schwarz will continue.

Advantest selected the R&S RTP high-performance oscilloscope for its excellent signal integrity and high acquisition rate. The R&S RTP features real-time processing with an in-house developed, high-performance, low-distortion A/D converter, an analog frontend and an exclusively developed, large-scale logic ASIC for the backend. Despite its compact form factor, the R&S RTP enables extremely accurate measurements at unprecedented speeds.

Advantest selected the R&S RTP 16 GHz bandwidth model for mass production evaluation of high-speed SoC testers. The unit has a high-speed rise time of 33 psec and a powerful, highly stable jitter analysis function with the latest decomposition algorithm, which enables simpler and more accurate system measurements. These benefits convinced Advantest to decide for the R&S RTP.

Jacques Jourda, Managing Director of Rohde & Schwarz Japan, says: “We are very honored to be providing our products to Advantest, the world’s top supplier of SoC testers. The decision for the R&S RTP has further strengthened our long-term relationship with the company.”

Noriaki Fukushima of the Advantest SoC Test Business Headquarters says: “The introduction of the R&S RTP and building of a new shipping inspection line helped strengthen our production line in response to increased demand. We were also able to enhance options for replacing aging production equipment. In the future, we will expand our use of the R&S RTP164 to promote robust operation of measuring instruments in production.”

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.

Tame the SiC Beast - Unleash the Full Capacity of Silicon Carbide

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

Wide band gap materials such as silicon carbide are revolutionizing the power industry. At the same time, they can also introduce byproducts including overheating, short circuits and over voltage. The question remains: how can we use silicon carbide without those headache-inducing side effects? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rob Weber from Microchip about Microchip’s patented augmented switching technology can make those silicon carbide side effects a thing of the past while reducing our switching losses up to 50% and accelerating our time to market as well.
