SINGAPORE, April 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- National Instruments (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of solutions that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world's greatest engineering challenges, will take part in SEMICON Southeast Asia 2015 in Penang, Malaysia from 22 to 24 April 2015. NI will demonstrate its technology leadership and showcase its suite of software and hardware solutions, including a firsthand preview of its Semiconductor Test System (STS) series in the region.

The STS series is a family of configurable test systems designed to lower the costs of semiconductor production test and lab characterization. Built on NI PXI modular capability with an added instrumentation and computing power, the STS series allows test engineers to evolve test capabilities and meet next-generation test requirements with lesser time and lower costs. Unlike traditional ATE systems, the STS combines modular instrumentation and graphical system design software which is particularly important for RF and mixed signal production test.

Chandran Nair, Managing Director of National Instruments ASEAN, said: "With rising costs of testing and increasing complexities in semiconductor technologies, traditional ATE systems are struggling to keep up with the market demands. With STS, our customers are now able to take advantage of the open, scalable platform-based approach that can be fully integrated into their existing production environment with minimal downtime, and this translates to huge costs saving and production gains."

The inaugural SEMICON Southeast Asia is an extension of its predecessor SEMICON Singapore which was first held in 1993. Over the years, SEMICON has become a highly anticipated tradeshow exhibition with networking events, market and technology seminars and conferences, and now with a large audience base within the Southeast Asian communities in the semiconductor and microelectronics sectors. NI welcomes the opportunities to meet with valued customers and partners at the event.
