The discontinued TS8X combo-based test system models have transitioned from Full Support to the Partial Support status category. This means that Teradyne plans to make no further software or hardware enhancements for the discontinued TS8X system models: TS83, TS84, TS86, TS87, TS87L, TS87LX Combo and HDC pin board testers. Future software support will be limited to critical bug fixes of Navigate software version 5.8 on the Microsoft Windows XP operating system. This is the last software version that supports TS8X test systems.

Service and support contracts are still available for purchase to support these discontinued system models. Teradyne's Global Services Organization (GSO) and support team will provide a "reasonable commercial effort" to satisfy customer support and service requests for hardware, application, and maintenance services.

To take advantage of new features and future software enhancements, Teradyne recommends the TestStation family of in-circuit test systems as a replacement option for TS8X customers.

If you have any questions regarding this information or want information regarding upgrade options, please contact your local Teradyne Representative or 1-800-TERADYNE.
