STMicroelectronics’ Experience: Synopsys Logic BIST for Automotive and Safety-Critical Designs
ICs targeted for safety-critical applications must be able to perform in-system self-test in compliance with functional safety standards such as ISO 26262. In this webinar, Synopsys highlights synthesis-based logic BIST that addresses the self-test requirements for safety-critical designs. Our guest speaker from STMicroelectronics presents results and details of Synopsys’ test solution successfully deployed on production designs.

Dialog Semiconductor and Synopsys Present: New DFTMAX Ultra for Squeezing Out More Test Compression with Fewer Pins
The demand for pin-limited compression is being driven by tighter form factors, the design of multicore SoCs that require few pins per core for test access, and the adoption of multisite testing as a technique to reduce test application time and cost. In this webinar, we will highlight how Synopsys’ new DFTMAX Ultra is designed from the ground up to achieve high compression using fewer digital scan pins and a minimum of one pair of scan pins. Our guest speaker will then discuss how DFTMAX Ultra is being successfully deployed to lower the cost of testing mixed-signal designs at Dialog Semiconductor.
