About CAST

Brain IC 540 pixel

CAST is a SEMI Technology Community providing a collaborative technology platform where SEMI members in the ATE and test systems space can discuss issues and pre-competitively develop solutions that benefit the industry. CAST Overview.

A SEMI Technology Community

CAST was formed in 2008 by semiconductor device makers and test industry suppliers to engage in and resolve common industry issues related to higher test equipment utilization, lower costs, and greater return on investment. In 2009, CAST became a SEMI Technology Community.  The founding supporters include Advantest, Amkor, Infineon, Intel, LTX-Credence, Qualcomm, Roos Instruments, Teradyne, and Verigy. Read More.

CAST activities currently include:

  • Rich Interactive Test Database (RITdb)
  • Tester Event Messaging for Semiconductors (TEMS)
  • Device ID & Traceability
