Fremont, Calif.--July 13, 1998--Credence Systems Corp. (Fremont) launched its production solution for testing consumer mixed-signal devices, Quartet One. Credence will debut Quartet One at Semicon West 98 in the San Jose Convention Center, July 15-17 (Booth #11927).
Quartet One unifies a new digital subsystem with audio, video, and RF instruments. The synchronicity of the instruments, integrated into a single test system, enables the volume manufacturing of consumer mixed-signal (CMS) devices.
Quartet One uses the Antares chipset, featuring a scalable architecture that provides accuracy enhancements for the newly emerging devices. The Antares subsystem provides 512 digital pins with 200 MHz, 175ps EPA, and 32 Mbyte vector memory.
The Quartet One packages include a pattern memory tool, a shmoo tool, a waveform tool, and an advanced algorithmic pattern processor tool.
Volume shipments of Quartet One for CMS devices are scheduled to begin Q3 1998. Pricing begins at $750,000.
