Cleveland, Ohio – June
12, 2007 -
Keithley Instruments, Inc. (NYSE:KEI), a leader in solutions for emerging measurement needs,
announced today that it has received the Texas Instruments (TI) 2006 Supplier Excellence Award. The
annual award honors firms whose dedication and commitment in supplying products and services meet
TI's high standards for excellence. Recipients are chosen for their exemplary performance in the
areas of cost, environmental responsibility, technology, responsiveness, assurance of supply, and
quality. TI's management team from the WPL-Assembly and Test Capital Equipment business group
presented the award to Keithley personnel.
Keithley supplies a wide range of electrical test and measurement hardware and software to TI,
including the Model 4200-SCS Semiconductor Characterization System, the Series S600 Parametric Test
Systems, and high performance sourcing/measuring/switching DC instrumentation.
The Model 4200-SCS incorporates tightly integrated DC and pulse measurement capabilities with
application packages for turnkey semiconductor test solutions. Keithley recently announced a variety
of enhancements to this system, including three new application packages, an enhanced pulse
generator card, and a new scope card, that offer powerful new solutions for such areas such as Flash
memory testing, high-power radio frequency (RF) device testing, and pulse testing for advanced
Keithley Series S600 parametric testers are designed to help fabs and wafer foundries reduce
their cost of test. Key advantages of Series S600 testers include on-wafer DC to RF testing on a
single platform, a wide range of applications, and SECS/GEM automation for 300 and 200 mm.
“This award is particularly meaningful given the strict standards and rigorous quality metrics
required by TI,” said Keithley vice president, business management Mark Hoersten. “We are grateful
to have customers recognize our own commitment to providing the highest levels of measurement
integrity, outstanding customer service, and dedication to reducing Cost of Test.”
