DesignWare STAR Memory System

The DesignWare® Self-Test and Repair (STAR) Memory System® is a comprehensive, integrated test, repair and diagnostics solution that supports repairable or non-repairable embedded memories across any foundry or process node. Silicon-proven in over a billion chips on a range of process nodes, the STAR Memory System is a cost-effective solution for improving test quality and repair of manufacturing faults found in advanced processes. The STAR Memory System's highly automated design implementation and diagnostic flow, including Silicon Browser and Yield Accelerator, enables SoC designers to achieve quick design closure and significantly improve time-to-market and time-to-yield in volume production.

The STAR Memory System includes optimized test algorithms specifically targeted at increasing coverage for memory defects like process variation and resistive faults that are prevalent at smaller process nodes, including 28-nm and 14/16-nm FinFET.

Synopsys asked its customers—design engineers, R&D managers, and more—to share their experiences using DesignWare Embedded Memories, Logic Libraries and STAR Memory System. Browse the survey results to read their comments, see statistics on their power, performance, area, and yield improvements, and review complete case studies.
