Verigy Ltd (nasdaq|VRGY) is a
Singapore-based company that is in the semiconductor automatic test equipmentbusiness. It was spun off from Agilent Technologiesin 2006.
Verigy designs, develops, manufactures, sells and services advanced semiconductor test systems and solutions for the
flash memory, high-speed memory and system-on-chip(SoC) markets. Verigy’s scalable platforms are used by leading companies worldwide in design validation, characterization, and high-volume manufacturing test. Advanced analysis tools accelerate design debug and yield ramp processes for Verigy’s customers. The company began doing business as Verigy on June 1, 2006.
The Verigy V93000 provides a scalable platform architecture for testing SoCs, systems-in-package (SIPs) and high-speed memory devices. The V93000, with nearly 2,000 RF-ready systems installed worldwide, meets the industry’s demanding performance and cost challenges, whether for at-speed engineering characterization or high-volume production. The test system provides low cost-of-test with massive multi-site capabilities, and with data rates up to 12.8 Gbit/s. It supports a full range of digital, mixed-signal, RF and wireless applications, such as cellular, WLAN, WiMAX, and UWB.
Inovys DfX (Design for [Test, Manufacturing, Yield, etc.] ) provides innovative solutions for design debug, failure analysis and yield acceleration for complex semiconductor devices and processes. Verigy's Inovys DfX solutions uniquely bridge the gap between electronic design automation (EDA) and test, providing a seamless path between design and production. Inovys solutions enable semiconductor companies to reduce design debug from weeks to hours, lower production test costs, and support real-time yield enhancements with unique failure analysis tools. Inovys DfX tools combined with Verigy’s proven V93000 test platform provide accelerated time-to-volume production for Verigy customers.
The V5000 Series of memory test systems offers a complete solution for all memory test needs – from engineering development to high-volume production. With a scalable platform architecture and optimized tester resources to efficiently test all memory types, the V5000 Series solves the widest variety of memory test issues. The Programmable Interface Matrix technology enables significantly lower cost of final test through extremely high pin count (16,384 pins), the highest available parallelism (x320 NAND, x256 NOR and MCPs) and greatest tester utilization. With a consistent platform architecture providing complete test transportability and stability, memory companies gain new levels of efficiency in migrating tests from design to sort to final test.
Verigy announced its
initial public offeringof 8.5 million shares of common stock on 2006- 06-13, priced at $15.00 per share, and is listed on the NASDAQNational Market under the ticker symbol VRGY. Agilent spun off the remaining Verigy stock to its shareholders on 2006- 11-01.
Verigy succeeds in the market with its "scalable platform" strategy, a balanced portfolio across flash and high-speed memory and SoC/SiP test, and a flexible business model responsive to the semiconductor industry.
