Mfg Vision Ltd has released Real-Time SPC, a software product for real-time statistical monitoring and control of mixed-signal semiconductor test. John O’Donnell, CEO of Mfg Vision Ltd, headquartered in Limerick, Ireland (with a second office in Bohol, the Philippines), says that “Situations of out-of-control binning or parametric performance should generate alerts on a test floor, and this is where our software comes in. The controls are set by engineers and managers and the testers employ these limits for every lot tested, saving many hours of re-test. Problems with testing are caught on the spot”.
