Agilent 93000 SOC Series is 1 Gbps High-speed Test Standard in China

5/13/2003 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) announced that Global Advanced Packaging Technology Ltd. (GAPT) has selected the Agilent 93000 SOC Series P1000-model test system as the standard test platform for China's first 1 Gbps high-speed production testing line. The Agilent 93000 SOC Series is ideal for verification and testing of PC and graphics chipsets, as well as high-speed architectures including HyperTransport, Serial ATA and PCI Express; and high-speed interfaces such as USB 2.0, LVDS and TMDS, used in communications and computer systems.

"By adding the P1000 to the multiple Agilent 93000 SOC C400e-models already purchased for testing of mixed-signal ICs, GAPT takes full advantage of Agilent's expertise and long-term relationship to pioneer high-speed testing in China," said GAPT Chief Executive Officer C.K. Lin. "I firmly believe that the Agilent 93000 SOC P1000-model helps maximize customer satisfaction by meeting the rising demand for high-speed digital IC testing in China."

"GAPT's leading-edge packaging and testing technology combined with the full support of Agilent China, provides worldwide IC design houses and integrated device manufacturers with the most advanced testing services available," said Paul Yang, general manager for Semiconductor Test Equipment Group of Agilent China. "Creating China's first 1 Gbps high-speed production testing line creates a new milestone, and heralds the expansion of China's IC industry from entry-level, low-cost devices into high-end, high-quality integrated devices."

The model P1000 tests devices with data rates up to 1.25 Gbs and is a proven production solution. In addition, it has the capabilities to test next-generation core logic chipsets and graphics chips.
