Teradyne and Mentor Graphics Partner to Provide Yield Learning Solution for Nanometer Geometry Devices

NORTH READING, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—November 6, 2008— Teradyne, (NYSE: TER) announced today the successful integration of the UltraFLEX IG-XL operating system with the Mentor Graphics YieldAssist scan diagnosis product at multiple domestic and international customers. This effort implements a complete design-to-production feedback loop using the UltraFLEX test platform by providing automated diagnosis of failure data from scan-based manufacturing test. Customer-specific implementations, supported by Teradynes worldwide applications support team, allow users to quickly and accurately identify and isolate yield-limiting defects.

We are pleased to have Teradyne as a partner in the deployment of YieldAssist, said Greg Aldrich, Director of Marketing for Design-for-Test products at Mentor Graphics. The YieldAssist solution helps manufacturers of complex devices to quickly detect and correct design and process-related yield problems. Integrating YieldAssist with the UltraFLEX software environment provides a great deal of additional value to our mutual customers.

This integration demonstrates how Teradynes IG-XL helps unify design and test environments, said Greg Smith, manager of Teradynes Broadband and Computing Business Unit. Teradyne has been very active in driving new industry standards that will further enable collaboration of this type with our customers and third party IP providers, such as Mentor. Given our customers requirements for faster time-to-volume, this important new capability greatly increases their return on investment in Teradynes UltraFLEX platform.
