Seminars: Optimized Solutions for Yield Learning

Verigy (NASDAQ:VRGY) and Cadence Design Systems, Inc. are hosting a seminar series for semiconductor designers and manufacturers on how to improve product yield economics. The half-day seminars will include presentations by Cadence and Verigy representatives on technologies and techniques for yield learning that optimize data gathering for improved throughput and accuracy of diagnosis, as well as provide methods to address yield issues earlier in the process.

Product engineers and failure analysis engineers will gain valuable insight on techniques for enabling fast product ramps, while engineering managers and executives will learn how to improve cost reduction through yield learning. The joint seminar between Verigy and Cadence highlights the integrated architecture for yield learning by optimizing the cost of information, improving throughput, and accuracy of diagnosis and providing methods to address yield problems earlier to improve yield economics.
