TOKYO, May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857) will open its 13th annual VOICE Developer Conference on May 14-15 in Scottsdale, Arizona, and on May 23 in Singapore to help members of the international semiconductor community stay on the leading edge and improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of IC testing. This year’s international gatherings, both at maximum capacity, present Advantest technology users with the opportunity to attend more than 90 technical sessions on the latest test developments and best practices, meet with product experts, listen to stimulating keynote addresses and visit the Partners’ Exposition. VOICE also offers networking events in both locations to give attendees the opportunity to conduct in-depth discussions on a broad range of current IC test solutions and the future of test.

The detailed VOICE 2019 technical program for Scottsdale is available online at https://voice.advantest.com/scottsdale-technical-program/. This year’s program will focus on crucial topics in the automatic test equipment (ATE) industry such as the Internet of Things (IoT), hardware and software design integration, test methodologies, device/system-level test, and – for the first time – automotive IC testing with the T2000 platform, which enables testing of devices used in electric vehicles, from sensors, processors and powertrains to communication systems. In addition to the paper presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from Advantest R&D engineers and technology experts during the Technology Kiosk Showcase and new Advantest Technology Panel Discussion on May 14 in Scottsdale, where Advantest experts will share their industry insights and field questions from the audience.
