NORTH READING, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 31, 2010Teradyne, Inc., (NYSE: TER) announced that the latest version of software (5.1) for the Spectrum™ in-circuit test system will include Test Expert™ software, the latest productivity software from Siemens PLM Software. The integrated software, Test Expert for Spectrum v9.0, interacts directly with Teradyne’s Spectrum test program development environment to expedite the process of importing electronic CAD and BOM data, the selection of appropriate test probe locations, and the automation of the test fixture design files.

Test Expert, a component of Siemens PLM Software’s Tecnomatix® software, is a solution that helps the high-tech and electronics industry automate test engineering associated with new product introduction processes for PCB assembly.
