Anam Selects Agilent Technologies' Semiconductor Parametric Test System for High-volume Flash Memory Wafer Test

10/22/2002 - Agilent Technologies announced that Anam Semiconductor has selected the Agilent 4072A Semiconductor Parametric Test System to test high-volume flash memory wafers used in digital cameras, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and other memory devices. Anam's decision was based on the 4072A's stable throughput and proven capabilities in flash memory test.

"The Agilent 4072A is a cost-effective platform we can count on to test a broad range of flash memory wafer designs," said Jun-Ho Jang, test manager, Anam Semiconductor. "The system's capabilities and Agilent's local technical support team help us develop efficient test programs for our different flash memory device types."

"Agilent's Korean support team worked closely with Anam as they transitioned to the 4072A for flash memory parametric test and we'll continue to work with Anam as their test needs change to ensure their test programs are always as efficient as possible," said Sung-Hyun Chang, Agilent's Korea country manager. "With the Agilent 4072A and a team of test experts to support it, Anam is prepared to test any type of flash memory wafer that comes out of their fab."

The Agilent 4072A is used for a variety of parametric tests, including DC parametric diagnosis, a crucial test in flash memory wafer fabrication, process measurement and silicon quality assurance. Data gathered during DC parametric diagnosis allows engineers to evaluate the quality of a silicon process and helps increase downstream device yields. The unique architecture of the 4072A enables it to make these DC parametric measurements quickly and accurately.
