JVD: The Silicon Valley Center of Excellence for Contract Semiconductor Testing
JVD began testing Analog Mixed-signal ICs in 1982 as an adjunct to its Design Services business. Today, in addition to its iASIC customers, JVD tests wafers and components for many of Silicon Valley’s premiere chip companies as well as numerous small and medium sized fabless IC companies. The microelectronics testing facility in San Jose maintains seventeen probe stations, suitable for all your testing needs.
Wafer Probe Capabilities
JVD is your one stop shop for all your probe card design, fabrication, verification, wafer test and production needs.
From Wafer Characterization and Qualification to Production Test
JVD’s highly-skilled staff are well versed in helping you identify the best test methodology for your device. Test specifications are developed jointly, taking into consideration variables such as test times and wafer throughput, DFT, environmental conditions and more. Probe cards and test load boards can sometimes be as complicated as the IC they are testing so JVD engages that aspect of the project at the initiation of the device design.
In addition to production wafer probe and final test, JVD will also conduct all your characterization and qualification testing, providing you with a complete package of detailed and summary data that you can make available to your critical customers. JVD takes care of the complete range of development and semiconductor testing processes: from wafers, to qualification testing, through to the final functional test of packaged devices.
Too Many Die to Count
JVD’s successful track record has made it a stellar success in the testing world. A recent program with SunPower Corp resulted in probing over 140,000,000 optical die without a single error. JVD’s test strategies offer the lowest cost/highest performance results. Whether your application is for a few hundred or a few million devices, JVD stands ready to support your requirements at the die or packaged level.
