at SEMICON West 2015
In mid-July, Aemulus flew half a globe to
showcase our latest innovation, AMB4600 for the eyes of like-minded across
continents. As company is operating in a niche within niche industry, Aemulus
has been successful at creating remarkable test systems for specified market
segments ranged from discrete, analog and RF.
With our technology ingredients, Aemulus
built AMB4600 to expand into digital and mixed signal market segment. And, it
was officially launched 16 hours away from home at the heart of Silicon Valley,
SEMICON West 2015.
Throughout the exhibition, we have
identified few common questions from the floor and it is in our great interest
AMB4600 standing tall at our booth.
Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: What is this tall guy?
It is a digital/mixed signal tester
base – built with PXIe architecture but not limited to extending it into a
Hybrid Automated Test Equipment (ATE) by integrating other 3rd party equipment.
Q2: What are the devices covered under
As a mixed signal tester, it can be
configured purely for Digital devices (estimated around 256 pins) or configured
solely for mixed signal devices.
Aemulus acknowledged the importance
of achieving optimal cost of test in this industry via AMB7600 which are
targeted on the RF Front End Segment. With this, it is our desire to extend
this product into a new market segment targeting baseband and transceiver devices,
namely, RF SoCs.
In short, this is a reconfigurable
testers that allows customer to tailor suit/configure the tester to best suits
their application at the most cost effective way.
Q3: What differ AMB4600 from its
competitors (with PXIe based hard docking) and the big iron?
The whole platform is architected to allow
expansion and integration of peripheral modules at the fastest Time to Market
For example, we have been testing Antenna Switch Modules in a huge
volume on our existing test platform - AMB7600. The capability of integrating
external high Power Amp boxes enabled us to expand the capabilities of our test
system within a very short development timeframe (less than 4 weeks). Likewise,
we applied similar architectural framework on AMB4600 - a significant advantage
in fact comparing to our competitors. All of this are made possible through our
software architecture (techFlow) that has been perfected over 8 years.
Lastly, as cost is always a prime-concern and delivering lowest Cost of
Test solutions to our customers is vital to us, we offer at least 2 types of manipulators
base on application and cost.
Q4. When was AMB4600 launched and has it
been adopted by any customer?
AMB4600 was officially launched at
SEMICON West 2015. In fact, we have been collaborating with one of our key
customer to define this tester platform since September 2014. We received a number
of enquiries and great interest shown over this product. Today, we have tenths of
systems on the production floor.
Q5. What is the price point for this
It is almost impossible to state a
price point simply because it is configurable based on customers’ need. However,
we are looking at the overall Cost of Test’s savings, which include the
parallelism achievable through this system which are test time, floor space
All in all, adoption by one of our key customers has indirectly validate
improvement of test cost by moving from a big iron to our test system.
