AUTOMATIC TEST EQUIPMENT INTRODUCTION
AUTOMATIC TEST EQUIPMENT INTRODUCTIONSemiconductors are key components of all electronic products. As the prevalence and variety of electronic products increases, so do the requirements and complexity of semiconductor manufacturing. The worldwide sales for semiconductor ICs were about $338 billion in 2015. For 2016, the semiconductor market is expected to grow by 0.3 percent (Source: Semiconductor Industry Association). Semiconductor manufacturers produce many types of devices, such as power regulators, DACs, ADCs, RF transceivers, and microprocessors, by etching millions or even billions of transistors and other electronic components on several layers of the semiconductor wafers. Although the steps in manufacturing these devices vary for different device types, the general proce…
