June 16, 2014. Xcerra today announced that Dave Tacelli will join the panel discussion “Testing into the Future” at the upcoming Semicon West Show, scheduled to take place July 8 to 10 in San Francisco. The panel discussion will be part of the TechXpot North session “Seeking Growth” on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, hosted by the Collaborative Alliance for Semiconductor Test (CAST).
This session will start with updates on the ITRS and CAST activities. The premise is that historical barriers between fab, assembly, and test are breaking down as new technologies are adopted. The ITRS test roadmap identifies these technologies, and CAST activities are directed towards pre-competitive solutions to enable them.
The presentations will lead into the panel session that will discuss the business implications and opportunities.
Tacelli was appointed president and chief executive officer of LTX in November 2005 and continued in that capacity following the formation of LTX-Credence in August 2008. In December 2013 the Company closed on the acquisition on Multitest and Everett Charles Technologies, more than doubling the company size and its addressable market. In May 2014 Xcerra Corp., the umbrella company of LTX-Credence, Multitest, Everett Charles Technologies, and atg Luther & Maelzer was established. Continuing the role of president and CEO, Tacelli is responsible for shaping the company‘s vision and strategy for developing semiconductor test solutions including tester, handling equipment, and interface products, as well as, the company‘s printed circuit board (PCB) testers and printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) fixture design and fabrication services.
