Nov. 23, 2005 -- Cascade Microtech, a maker of tools for precise electrical measurements on small structures, announced it is expanding its capabilities in the semiconductor failure analysis market.
The company recently introduced the eVue digital imaging system, a new tool for sub-micron probing to ease the problems of failure analysis on rapidly shrinking geometries. On Tuesday, it announced that it has entered into a business and technology partnership with Credence Systems Corp. to further expand its failure analysis market penetration. The terms of the relationship were not disclosed.
"Credence's leadership in complete offerings of proven 65nm debug and diagnostics equipment is strategic to Cascade's launch of our failure analysis product line," said John Pence, vice president of the engineering products division at Cascade, in a prepared statement.
