Advantest and W2BI to Exhibit Advanced Test Solutions at Mobile World Congress
Press release [Wednesday 1 March 2017]
Leading semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857) and W2BI, Inc., an Advantest Group company whose test automation products help customers quickly launch new high-quality smart devices, will showcase their newest test and test automation products for the wireless electronics market at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), running February 27 through March 2 at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain.
"Under the banner of long-time MWC exhibitor W2BI, we will display two of our leading-edge products designed to measure the connected world and everything in it," said Judy Davies, vice president of global marketing communications at Advantest. "Our diverse array of technologies is united behind the common goal of helping our customers to reduce their costs of test and get their products to market faster."
Stand #6K37 in Hall 6 will feature exhibits of Advantest's IC measurement platform as well as the latest test automation product from W2BI.
Advantest's EVA100 tester is designed for highly efficient evaluation and measurement of analog/mixed-signal ICs. It uses the same test sequences for both design and production measurements, allowing users to establish a standardized measurement environment throughout their operations. By freeing semiconductor manufacturers from the need to invest time and resources in correlating test data from different systems, the EVA100 helps to achieve much shorter time to market for new IC designs.
Also at the stand, W2BI will demonstrate its new capability to support testing of LTE-M devices using the portable MicroLTE system, which leverages cloud technology to test smart devices and IoT-based technologies. The system lowers the cost of testing during the development and production life cycles and provides a high level of scalability. The MicroLTE system supports 4G, 3G/2G, Wi-Fi, BT and NFC test features.
W2BI, Inc. is an Advantest Group company and a global leader in wireless device test automation products. Serving the world's top wireless operators, suppliers and labs, W2BI's software helps customers to significantly improve their device quality and time-to-market.
