*Press Release 6/2014*

*Keithley to Supply Multiple Parametric Test Systems to X-FAB*
+Systems Ensure Process and Device Quality at the Foundry’s Production
Line in Malaysia+
*CLEVELAND, OH – September 25, 2014* – Keithley Instruments, Inc
(http://www.keithley.com/)., a world leader in advanced electrical test
instruments and systems, today announced it had received orders for
additional S530 Parametric Test Systems from X-FAB Silicon Foundries.
X-FAB, a Germany-based foundry for analog/mixed-signal devices and micro
electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), ordered low power versions of the
S530 tester for installation on the main production line at its facility
in Kuching, Malaysia, where high voltage S530 systems are already in
place.
1. Dr. Manfred Riemer, the chief operating officer at X-FAB, said, “The
strategic cooperation and excellent support our management teams have
enjoyed through working with Keithley personnel made the decision an
easy one. The compatibility of the S530 systems with X-FAB’s
manufacturing automation systems and the high correlation with our
existing test equipment have been excellent.”
Steffen Richter, X-FAB’s group manager for process control monitoring,
will present a paper on the joint X-FAB/Keithley effort involving the
initial S530 correlation and speed optimization project at the 16th
European Manufacturing Test Conference (EMTC), to be held during
SEMICON^®^ Europa 2014 in Grenoble, France, October 7–9, 2014. The
paper, “Optimizing Automatic Parametric Test (APT) in Mixed Signal/MEMS
Foundry,” is co-authored with Alex Pronin, Ph.D., a lead applications
engineer at Keithley.

In announcing the sale, Keithley general manager Mike Flaherty noted,
“X-FAB has relied on Keithley parametric test systems for many years.
Based on their experience with our S530 high voltage systems, X-FAB
decided to add Keithley low power systems to their main production
line.”
Flaherty continued, “Keithley’s personnel worked closely with the
engineering teams to ensure the results correlated well with those from
their existing testers. Our applications team converted thousands of
lines of original test system code and then performed correlation tests,
matching more than 1200 parameters to within 3 percent of the original
vendor’s data.”

Keithley S530 Parametric Test Systems provide an exceptional low cost of
ownership, mainly for semiconductor fabs requiring high throughput
testing across a broad mix of products or wherever wide application
flexibility and fast test plan development are critical. The low power
(200V) system configuration is typically used for standard CMOS,
bipolar, MEMS, and other relatively low voltage semiconductor processes.
The high power (1kV) version is optimized for the difficult breakdown
and leakage tests that GaN, SiC, and Si LDMOS power devices demand.

Why on earth have you posted this here ?
It's quite hard to think of any place where it would fit on E14 but this
surely isn't the best.
