Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
The IEEE European Test Symposium (ETS) is Europe’s premier forum dedicated to presenting and discussing scientific results, emerging ideas, applications, hot topics and new trends in the area of electronic-based circuits and system testing, reliability, security and validation. ETS’22 will be held in Casa Convalescència, located in the historical modernist site Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (World Heritage Site by UNESCO, 1997) in Barcelona, which is located 10 minutes walking from the Sagrada Familia. The format of the conference will be hybrid. ETS’22 is organized by UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya).
Power Handling during Test is an important factor that needs to be considered during chip design, silicon bring-up, and In-System Testing. In this tutorial, we will start by listing the importance of power and the different problems faced with poor power intent. We will then proceed to give an overview of different power aspects related to test, from RTL implementation to in-system validation, and how each step can impact the overall performance. Next, we will introduce the different DFT techniques for design that help with better power planning producing optimized quality of results (QoR). Finally, we will present data sets on how each of the listed techniques implemented on real designs give the desired results.
The time required for testing silicon defects continues to rise as design complexity and transistor count increases in-line with Moore’s Law. Structured test, particularly scan compression, assists with reducing the amount of time and effort involved. Furthermore, the associated design-for-test (DFT) is often reusable for determining the root cause of defective silicon behavior. However, new challenges associated with higher system integration, such as 3D-IC and chiplet packaging technologies, and shrinking time-to-market, requires a new approach to achieve low defect levels and gain understanding of defective or abnormal behavior This relatively new approach is known as Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM) and enables testing and analysis throughout the different silicon life phases, and utilized analytics (diagnostics) to improve each phase from design to in-field operation.
