Infineon Technologies AG has joined Semiconductor Test Consortium Inc. (STC), the leading proponent of worldwide adoption of the Open Semiconductor Test Architecture standard.

The addition of Infineon marks another milestone for the STC, said the press release, whose European membership now comprises 13 companies—28 per cent of the total corporate membership. These members are integral to the consortium's recent evolution into a fully functioning ecosystem of worldwide semiconductor industry leaders, and further validate European support of the STC's ability to create and implement open, common test architecture for vendors throughout the automated test equipment sector, the press release further said.

"Infineon has a wide product portfolio ranging from discretes to power, automotive to RF, and mixed-signal ICs," said Klaus Luther, Infineon's senior director of corporate test technology and STC co-vice chairman. "We count on the open platform concept to enable a higher degree of flexibility of our assets as well as better re-use of the competencies of our test engineers across several applications and product generations. It is Infineon's intention to eliminate redundant R&D expenses, such as switching cost by architecture, along with interface and software convergence of our test solutions."
