  TOKYO, Dec 05 (Marketwire) -- 
VOICE 2013, a user's group meeting and partners conference organized by
Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857) (NYSE: ATE), is an international
conference focusing on innovative test solutions for system-on-chip (SOC)
and memory semiconductor devices and handler solutions. The 2013
conference will include technical presentations, new product kiosks,
interactive discussion sessions for users of the T2000, V93000 and memory
test platforms and test cell solutions, offering extensive networking and
learning opportunities for all attendees. A new addition to the program
will be focused on Advantest's handler solutions.

    The seventh annual VOICE conference on April 23-25, 2013, at the
DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, Calif., will open with two days of
technical presentations, one-on-one meetings and a suppliers' expo,
followed by a third day of hands-on workshops -- all focusing on
future-ready, scalable SOC and memory test solutions from Advantest.

    "Following an exciting inaugural year with presentations covering the
full Advantest SOC and memory portfolio, we expect VOICE 2013 to have an
increased number of new users with a wider range of customer offered
solutions," said Don Blair, Principal Consultant at Advantest and
chairperson of the VOICE conference's steering committee. "The expanded
portfolio from Advantest, including handlers, will multiply the attendee
learning opportunities at VOICE."

    "VOICE is an important facet of our ongoing commitment to high quality
customer care," said Keith Lee, president and CEO of Advantest America,
Inc. "We place great importance on creating true value for our attendees
by continually improving, expanding and differentiating our conference
from others in the industry. For example, for VOICE 2013 we will provide
a collaborative forum for exchanging information and perspectives on the
latest semiconductor testing techniques as well as best practices for our
SOC and memory test platforms."

    Each year, VOICE attracts hundreds of attendees from leading integrated
device manufacturers (IDMs), foundries, fabless semiconductor companies
and outsource assembly and test (OSAT) houses. The 2013 conference is
expected to draw an even larger and broader audience of test
professionals as the event continues to expand.

    The 2013 technical program will be focused around five tracks covering: 

--  Device Specific: Demonstrate the latest techniques for testing MPU,
    MCU, communications, automotive devices, CMOS imaging, sensors, PMIC
    and more.
--  Test Engineering Efficiency: Offer tips on writing fast test programs,
--  Test Techniques and Methodologies: Illustrate new techniques and
    discuss new solutions.
--  Production Test: Discuss cost effective and throughput-optimized
    solutions for the whole test cell including tester and handler.
--  Memory: Explores the most efficient and cost effective memory testing
    for Flash and DRAM memory users.
