Synopsis

Since the end of 2001, annual IC unit shipments have grown an astounding 120 percent. Will this torrid growth continue? If so, what are the implications for the IC test industry? Electronic Trend Publications (ETP), in the 2008 Edition of IC Test Market and Trends, analyzes the semiconductor industry and uses this analysis to forecast the future of the global IC test market.

The report begins with ETP’s views on the state of the semiconductor industry. This discussion includes a look at global economic factors that may impact the industry. ETP’s base semiconductor forecast and a mid-year update to that forecast are also provided.

 

Next, the report presents a brief overview of the technical trends in IC testing. Final test basics and issues are presented. Methods for reducing the cost of final test—including parallel or multi-site testing—are emphasized. The activities of the Semiconductor Test Consortium are reviewed.

Following the technical overview, the report presents final test cost forecasts for each semiconductor product type. This forecast includes units, revenue, and ASP for each product, so that the reader may compare test costs with product revenue. Test cost detail includes estimates for test times (seconds), testing costs (dollars per second), unit test cost (dollars per IC), total product test cost, and test cost as a percentage of product revenue.

 

Forecasts are also presented for the contract test services market. To help you further assess the companies participating in contract testing, the report profiles the activities of the world’s largest contractors and the services they offer.

 

The report also profiles a group of key equipment and software companies involved in semiconductor test.

 

IC Test Markets and Trends, 2008 Edition will provide you with an effective and economical tool for assessing the future of IC testing. The report is delivered by email as a single-user PDF file. The report sells for $1995, with extra single-user licenses at $250 each. Corporate licensing is available—contact us for pricing!
