Astronics Test Systems is on hand at SEMICON West this week to highlight its semiconductor test solutions. The company presents itself as offering an alternative to “one size fits all” test equipment. The company’s engineers will work with customers to build a system that meets technical specs and achieves business goals of reducing test cost and improving yields.
The company addresses test strategy, hardware design, software development and integration, manufacturing, installation, program management, and ongoing support. Astronics systems can test application processors, CPUs, baseband processors, board-level modules, and end-user devices. The company can test mixed-signal, RF, memory, and high-speed interfaces and can perform burn-in.
In addition, Astronics is touting its purchase last month of the ASCOR ATE Signal Switching product line from Giga-tronics. The ASCOR ATE Signal Switching line provides key switching technology to form a new core architecture in Astronics integrated test systems for military and aerospace industries.
“The addition of the ASCOR product line is a win for our customers as it provides Astronics with another valuable switching option that will satisfy legacy as well as future requirements for our integrated test solutions,” said Steve Fairbanks, senior director of products for Astronics Test Systems, in a press release. “We are looking forward to incorporating LXI, PXI, RF, and other aspects of this technology in a holistic approach to building custom testing solutions for our customers.”
Specifically, the ASCOR ATE Signal Switching line includes
- universal switching system solutions,
- PCI Express switching solutions,
- RF and microwave switch solutions,
- high density solutions,
- ASCOR switch modules, and
- Fiber Optic Switch Solutions.
Customers can purchase ASCOR switching modules from Astronics Test Systems now.
