Keithley receives award for semiconductor manufacturing solutions
"Pulse measurements, in which electronic devices are tested by pulsed current in nanosecond-length bursts instead of a constant flow, are becoming increasingly important in designing and fabricating semiconductor devices," said Mark Hoersten, Keithley Vice President, Business Management. "This new measurement capability is vital for materials researchers and device engineers who are struggling to test increasingly fragile and miniaturized devices, since they can be damaged by overheating when subjected to traditional electronic test methods. In addition, advanced semiconductor materials may not be accurately characterized by older test techniques."
In a ceremony on July 12 in San Francisco at the international SEMICON trade show, Semiconductor International will announce all the winners for 2006. "Advances in semiconductor technology are only possible because of the kinds of products being honored in this year's Editors' Choice Best Product Awards program," said Pete Singer, Editor-in-Chief of Semiconductor International. "Chipmakers rely on these products to create electronics that are smarter, smaller, faster, less expensive and more reliable. We congratulate the people and the companies that have had the insight and fortitude to bring these products to the market."
