Agilent Technologies introduces next-generation flat-panel display test system
Complete solution delivers fastest throughput, multisite test and improved defect detection
PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 1, 2005, Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the Agilent 88000 Series ATS-610 Array Test System, designed to test the amorphous silicon thin-film transistor arrays typically used in large, flat-panel televisions and computer displays. The ATS-610 supports seventh- and eight-generation glass fabrication lines and offers multisite test and improved defect detection. Using four test heads, multiple gate activation and 11,520 data channels, the ATS-610 is able to achieve the fastest a-Si TFT testing throughput. These new features offer manufacturers a cost-effective solution for reducing the total average cycle time, assuring high yields and a reliable, high-quality picture.
The Agilent ATS-610 enables electrical testing of all array pixels covering transistor, capacitor, electrode and bus lines, and prevents any defective pixels in the a-Si TFT array manufacturing process from entering into the next phase of production. By automatically checking the TFT characteristics and the open/short status of the lines and pixels, the ATS-610 is able to accurately determine the defect mode, resulting in a large increase in yield, an improvement in manufacturing productivity and a significant reduction in test costs. The Agilent ATS-610 is a complete test solution, including hardware, software services and application consulting.
“The ATS-610 is the latest addition to Agilent’s line of flat-panel display test solutions, expanding on the capabilities of the market adopted ATS-600,” said Minoru Ebihara, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Hachioji Semiconductor Test Division. “By lowering the TACT and offering multisite test and improved defect detection, the ATS-610 is able to provide high-end TFT manufactures with a less costly and more efficient testing process.”
