PDF Solutions, a provider of unified data and cloud analytics for the semiconductor ecosystem, and proteanTecs, a global specialist of deep data analytics, have announced a collaboration on combined semiconductor analytics solutions intended to provide deeper insights on yield, quality and reliability by integrating proteanTecs deep agent and analytics solutions with the Exensio Platform.

PDF Solutions and proteanTecs bring to the collaboration complementary expertise and market knowledge that combines PDF Solutions’ process characterisation and semiconductor big data analytics solutions, with proteanTecs’ deep data offering for chip and system lifecycle analytics.

The semiconductor industry is poised to grow in the next decade to become a trillion-dollar industry by 2030. About 70% of this growth is anticipated to be driven by three industries: automotive, computation and data storage, and wireless. These markets rely on high performance electronics with uncompromised lifetime functionality, leading semiconductor companies to seek advanced approaches for characterisation, volume production and in-field monitoring.

Through this collaboration, proteanTecs and PDF Solutions intend to offer combined solutions that leverage each company’s strengths, to enable data-driven insights and visibility in all stages of manufacturing.

The collaboration includes PDF Solutions’ Exensio Analytics platform, advanced AI/ML models and DEX data exchange network, and proteanTecs’ agents with cloud/edge analytics based on ML-driven chip telemetry.

The combined solutions are intended to deliver benefits such as adaptive test capabilities to further improve test quality and reduce DPPM (defective parts per million), enhanced device quality grading for downstream testing, and more insights around RMAs (return material authorizations) from in-field degradation monitoring.

“Primarily addressing the needs of the data centre and automotive markets, this is a collaboration where one plus one equals three,” said Uzi Baruch, Chief Strategy Officer at proteanTecs. “Many of the leading semiconductor companies rely on PDF Solutions for their semiconductor big data analytics. With PDF Solutions’ advanced analytics and proteanTecs’ silicon-proven deep data solutions, we can provide unprecedented insights and enrich production flows, enabling visibility into the device performance and software operations throughout its lifecycle.”

“By collaborating with proteanTecs, we are providing high-resolution insights on the SoC’s profile, health, and performance, enabling our mutual customers to achieve even greater benefits across the supply chain,” said Andrzej Strojwas, Chief Technology Officer at PDF Solutions. “Our solution for unified data is designed to enable semiconductor companies to leverage best-in-class technologies from our two companies.”
