Teradyne TER is scheduled to report its first-quarter 2024 results on Apr 24.

TER benefits from its robust and diversified portfolio particularly with the broader adoption of 3-nanometer technology in the mobility space and the launch of AI-supported smartphones that is expected to drive test demand.

In memory tests, the expansion of DDR5 and HBM devices used in data center applications to bolster retooling capabilities is expected to have contributed to its top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter.

However, Teradyne expects the Robotics segment to be weaker than seasonally in the to-be-reported quarter. Also, an overall weak demand environment and weakness in the hard disk drive (HDD) market are expected to have been headwinds for the company.
