PDF Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: PDFS), the leading provider of yield improvement technologies and services for the integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing process life cycle, today announced the launch of a dataPOWER® VSF update program.

dataPOWER® VSF is a powerful yield analysis solution for IC producers featuring an intuitive interface, strong visualization capabilities and the ability to handle large data volumes. dataPOWER® VSF is the result of a strategic alliance with TIBCO Software Inc., integrating TIBCO's Spotfire® analytics platform with PDF Solutions' dataPOWER® database, mapping and analysis capabilities.

dataPOWER® VSF helps engineers visualize large volumes of complex multivariate product and process data. This approach allows users to more rapidly gain insight into the outliers, trends and relationships that determine the key characteristics of cutting edge semiconductor products - all within the versatile, user-friendly Spotfire environment. dataPOWER® VSF allows detailed and fast data retrieval, together with unparalleled ease-of-use for interactive visual analysis of sort, final test, bin, parametric, defect, metrology, equipment history, and other custom data classes.

The combination of Spotfire - the industry's fastest, user-driven analytics solution - with the application-specific expertise of dataPOWER®, results in a unique, easy-to-use enterprise analytics platform accessible to casual users and experienced professionals. By extending a high degree of analytical power to a much broader audience of technical and managerial users, dataPOWER® VSF increases the decision making power of the entire organization.
