BEAVERTON, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Cascade Microtech, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCD), a leading supplier of solutions that enable precision measurements of integrated circuits at the wafer level, today announced MeasureOne, a framework for collaboration with best-of-breed partners to offer test and measurement solutions with validated performance. MeasureOne collaborations assure customers will have access to expertise enabling characterized test and measurement performance, uptime and service to achieve accelerated time to market through faster time to first measurement.
MeasureOne provides a framework under which Cascade Microtech joins forces with carefully selected leaders in measurement technologies to solve the problems that customers face when confronted with the "whole problem" of making systems work together. Whether a customer is searching for equipment to enable new measurements at the wafer, or seeking to integrate the components of a new measurement solution, MeasureOne provides the assurance the customer needs with respect to performance, ease of use, and serviceability.
"A key area of focus for Cascade Microtech has been the introduction of products and solutions to benefit customers who have been purchasing hardware and software from disparate vendors," said Michael Burger, president and CEO of Cascade Microtech. "We recognize that customers want best-of-breed solutions, but often integration and service of such solutions from multiple vendors is difficult to achieve. Cascade Microtech advocates for holistic solutions to customers' measurement problems, and helps them achieve that critical time to first measurement."
Under the MeasureOne collaboration with Dominion MicroProbes Inc., DMPI will provide millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength on-wafer ground-signal-ground probes and associated components for electrical measurement of devices and materials with frequencies up to 1.1 THz. This will enable customers involved in imaging, astronomy and high-speed communications to extend the capabilities of their Cascade Microtech systems. Cascade Microtech will provide the single source of contact for the installation and integration of probes from DMPI.
"We are delighted to embark on this new venture as Cascade Microtech's first MeasureOne solutions partner," said Dr. Scott Barker, CEO, Dominion MicroProbes. "Our expertise in sub-mmW probes with low-insertion loss coupling to the DUT and DC biasing of probed circuits is unique in the industry. Our products will extend the technological solution set for customers and are the perfect complement to Cascade Microtech's probe solutions, particularly as customers begin operating in the THz frequency ranges."
"We are collaborating with partners on a variety of different levels. We are working closely with technology and product suppliers, OEMs, instrument suppliers and VARS to create validated offerings and solutions," said Burger. "MeasureOne partners contribute their 'know-how' so that customers benefit from a true knowledge transfer. MeasureOne customers benefit by having the confidence in knowing leaders of their respective industries are collaborating on their behalf to achieve faster time to first measurement."
Additional MeasureOne solutions will be announced later this quarter. For detailed information and updates, visit www.cascademicrotech.com/measureone.
MeasureOne provides a single point of contact to deliver the optimal customer solution for configuration, installation, service and performance of application-specific measurement solutions. The MeasureOne program is designed to address applications including device modeling, load pull, WLR, emission microscopy, THz measurements and pulsed RF. The MeasureOne framework ensures that Cascade Microtech and its solutions partners will provide hardware and software support as well as a portfolio of service levels. The MeasureOne service levels include validated, optimized and guaranteed solution configurations and performance, as well as installation and support by our solutions experts.
