May 30, 2000, 21:48 (0 Talkback[s])

"SynTest Technologies, Inc., an EDA Company and supplier of DFT tools for IC designers and foundries, announced today that the company has added support for the Linux platform to its existing support for the UNIX platform."

"SynTest's products improve a design's testability and fault coverage and result in reduced defect levels and tester time."

"L.-T. Wang, SynTest's President and CEO, noted, "The benchmarks we ran last year validated that Linux was a viable platform for our DFT tools. We are adding Linux support in answer to customer requests and as part of our strategy to maintain our position as a leading supplier of DFT solutions."

"Wang noted, "For many of our customers tool performance is critical and our Linux tools typically run two to five times faster than with other operating systems, depending upon the workstation processor type and clock speed. This is in addition to the already five to twenty times speed advantage that they have over competing solutions."
