Company’s Breakthrough Technology Selected for Prestigious Technology Innovation Showcase
SAN JOSE, Calif. — July 8, 2005 — LogicVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN), a leading provider of yield learning capabilities that enable its customers to quickly and efficiently improve product yields, today announced its innovative high speed embedded SerDes I/O test technology has been selected as one of the emerging technologies to be highlighted in the Technology Innovation Showcase (TIS) at SEMICON West, July 12 – 14. The TIS will be located in the Emerging Technologies Hall, Esplanade, at Moscone Center in San Francisco. TIS winners are selected by a jury of technologists for the promise their innovations hold for the future of microelectronics and nano-electronics manufacturing.
The TIS includes technical presentations and an exhibit pavilion featuring displays from each of the participating companies and organizations. Stephen Sunter, an engineering director at LogicVision, will be presenting Embedded SerDes Test on the TIS stage on Thursday July 14th at 12:50pm.
LogicVision’s Embedded SerDes Test (EST) product is an IP-based technology that provides unique capabilities for testing ICs with an unlimited number of high-speed serial data channels operating at any frequency, from less than 1 Gbps to more than 10 Gbps. EST provides test accuracy comparable to that of the highest performance external equipment, but is compatible with any ATE platform. The ability of EST to diagnostically measure waveshape, jitter, and jitter tolerance, in millisecond test times, can improve yield and quality, and reduce test cost. The technology has been verified in silicon on SerDes channels running over 3 Gbps.
