SynTest Establishes Operations in China
And Appoints Hyperform as Distributor
SynTest Opens New Center For R&D and Customer Support
Sunnyvale, California, USA . January 22, 2004, SynTest Technologies,
Inc., the leading supplier of Design-for-Test (DFT) tools and services
for semiconductor integrated chips (ICs) announced that the Company has
opened a new center in Shanghai, for R&D and customer support. The
company has also appointed Hyperform Technologies Co., Ltd. as its distributor
to service the growing IC design market in China.
SynTest's products improve an electronic design's testability and fault
coverage, which result in not only reduced defect levels with lower tester
time, but also reduced time-to-market (TTM).
"The growing interest in our DFT products and services, and the continuing
development as well as enhancement of our products requires that we continue
to add to our R&D staff," noted Dr. L.T. Wang, SynTest President and
Dr. Wang remarked, "China, with its rapidly expanding IC design market
and fabless design houses, has become an important market for us. We have
appointed Hyperform as our distributor for China. Hyperform - led by James
Liu, ex-Director of Sales at Cadence China, a successful and seasoned
professional in the field of electronic design and EDA - was a logical
choice for us±. He added, "As we firmly believe that technical
support is an important pillar of our success, expanding our technical
support resources, was a given simultaneous step."
"Today, with more and more IC design companies in China doing high-end
designs, it is the right time to promote the DFT concept to make their
designs into reliable products," remarked James Liu, CEO, Hyperform. He
further noted, "As a startup company, I want to bring the best
DFT technology and services to our customers. SynTest, who has been playing
a major role in the DFT arena for 14 years, and offers the whole DFT solution,
from scan, compressed scan, to logic-BIST, was our natural choice."
SynTest Technologies, Inc., established 1990, develops and markets advanced
design-for-test (DFT) and design-for-debug/diagnosis (DFD) tools throughout
the world, to semiconductor companies, system houses, and design service
providers. The company's products improve an electronic design's testability
and fault coverage and result in reduced defect levels and reduced slippage
in time-to-market (TTM). The products also reduce overall design and test
costs, by helping to reduce design iterations as well as the time and
reloads on automatic test equipment (ATE). These products include tools
for logic BIST, memory BIST, boundary-scan synthesis, DFT testability
analysis, VirtualScan synthesis and ATPG with XtremeCompact test vectors,
concurrent fault simulation, silicon debug and diagnosis. The company,
headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, has offices in Taiwan, Korea,
Japan, and China, and has distributors in Europe and Asia including Israel.
