Presto Engineering Launches New Test Production Center

Integrated semiconductor engineering, including qualification, failure analysis, production and turnkey services, can now be obtained from a single supplier.

CAEN, FRANCE, — Presto Engineering, Inc., a world leader in semiconductor back-end turnkey production services, announced today that its Caen Normandy Hub has been expanded into a full industrialization and test production center, primarily serving the communications, automotive, industrial and consumer markets.

“Presto’s production center will serve the global semiconductor industry – as a European-based production option that offers an alternative to the cost and time involved in moving new products to Asia for ramp of low- to mid-level volume,” said Philippe Laban, Presto Engineering’s vice president and general manager, Europe. “Production options in Europe have decreased in recent years, and as a result, we see a real opportunity as a new, integrated, local solution for European customers. Our expertise in RF, millimetric wave, and mixed-signal technologies directly addresses these key areas of high demand in Europe.”

Presto Engineering’s Caen-based production center features a new Fusion MX™ RF tester and a new mixed-signal tester, the Diamond Series™ D10 (both from LTX-Credence), along with an already-existing MicroFLEX™ RF system from Teradyne. The new test center also offers automatic handlers and probers, as well as test development expertise.

Laban adds, “Our ability to offer both test development and production enables us to be a responsive and accountable partner with our customers, and provide the efficiency they need to ramp their products into production as quickly as possible and at the expected quality level.”
