Keithley supplies a wide range
of electrical test and measurement hardware and software to TI, including
the Model 4200-SCS Semiconductor Characterization System, the Series
S600 Parametric Test Systems, and high performance sourcing/measuring/switching
The Model 4200-SCS incorporates tightly
integrated DC and pulse measurement capabilities with application packages
for turnkey semiconductor test solutions. Keithley recently announced
a variety of enhancements to this system, including three new application
packages, an enhanced pulse generator card, and a new scope card, that
offer powerful new solutions for such areas such as Flash memory testing,
high-power radio frequency (RF) device testing, and pulse testing for
advanced semiconductor materials.
Keithley Series S600 parametric
testers are designed to help fabs and wafer foundries reduce their cost
of test. Key advantages of Series S600 testers include on-wafer DC to
RF testing on a single platform, a wide range of applications, and SECS/GEM
automation for 300 and 200 mm.
“This award is particularly meaningful
given the strict standards and rigorous quality metrics required by
TI,” said Keithley vice president, business management Mark Hoersten.
“We are grateful to have customers recognize our own commitment to providing
the highest levels of measurement integrity, outstanding customer service,
and dedication to reducing Cost of Test.”
Hoersten added that
the TI Supplier Excellence Award is one of several honors Keithley has
won recently from customers and industry analyst groups that recognize
the firm’s gains in measurement performance and ability to deliver consistent
customer service on a global scale.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
