Battery Management Testing: Alleviating EV Buyer Anxiety


As the electric vehicle (EV) market surges towards 2040, fueled by strong consumer enthusiasm, the need to address key concerns about EV range, reliability, and battery life has become critical. Anxiety over potential range limitations, amplified by fears of scarce charging options, alongside safety worries due to media-reported battery incidents, have slowed adoption rates. Here, the semicondu... » read more

Partnership To Improve Semiconductor Quality And Yield


By Eran Rousseau (NI) and Eli Roth (Teradyne) The semiconductor industry is notorious for its high production costs and the critical importance of maintaining impeccable product quality. As technology advances and consumer expectations rise, semiconductor companies face constant pressure to meet these cost and quality goals while also delivering cutting-edge products. Traditionally, the s... » read more

The Power Of AI To Drive Productivity Gains


Tuberculosis (TB) has been around for at least 9000 years, and people have been trying to find a cure or treatment for hundreds of years, but it remains one of the deadliest infectious diseases in the world, killing more than 1.5 million people per year. Despite all of the motivation and effort, there has been only partial progress in fully eradicating the disease but a company in South Korea, ... » read more

Delivering Real-Time Analytics To Semiconductor Test


As defined by Moore’s Law, the semiconductor field has been growing at a steady pace since the 1960s. Concurrent with this progression, semiconductors are becoming more complex, densely integrated, and expensive to produce. While such advancements pose new challenges to semiconductor manufacturing, we can extend Moore’s Law well into the future by reimagining the way we approach the semicon... » read more

Test Strategies In The Era Of Heterogeneous Integration


Moore’s Law, the observation that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years, is critical to advances in computing technology. For decades, fabs have managed to achieve exponential growth in digital capability and transistor density by making transistors smaller and smaller, but we’ve hit the physical limits of these processes. Today, new proces... » read more

Sustainable Products For A More Sustainable World

This effort also includes a focus on making our products more sustainable. In this blog, learn how Teradyne’s products and efforts are contributing to a more sustainabl... » read more

Testing High Power Discrete Devices


Emerging markets are driving the evolution of discrete power devices. Increased power requirements mean more power is being driven through a smaller device, creating challenges in both device design and test. This video series, 3 for 3, provides 3 answers for 3 pressing questions about trends in semiconductor test, and how testing for high power discrete devices is evolving. » read more

Image Sensors Are Everywhere And The Implications For Test Are Significant


In February of 2021, the NASA Perseverance rover actively navigated a fully-autonomous entry and descent to successfully land in the Jezero Crater on Mars, using a brand-new navigational system developed by NASA – Terrain-Relative Navigation. The delay between mission control and the rover was about 11 minutes so a human-guided remote landing was not possible. Previous missions had to rely o... » read more

Advanced Digital Process Nodes Drive Semiconductor Test Innovations


Global internet traffic is growing exponentially, with no sign of slowing, and this demand is driving the evolution of the semiconductor industry. The appetite for more and more data requires sensors for capturing the data, networks for moving the data, storage, and processing power to analyze the data. As the demand for data grows, the underlying technologies must advance to not only meet toda... » read more

Emerging Technologies Are Driving System Level Test Adoption


With the size of semiconductor transistors decreasing and chip complexity increasing exponentially, semiconductor test has become essential to ensuring that only high-quality products go to market. With the introduction of more rigorous acceptable quality level (AQL) certifications, test methods must constantly evolve to meet these standards, and system level test (SLT) and traditional test... » read more
