“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 Teradyne’s IG-XL helps unify design and test environments,” said Greg Smith, manager of Teradyne’s 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 Teradyne’s UltraFLEX platform.”
