The Synopsys TestMAX™ family offers innovative test and diagnosis for all silicon designs and enables a unified flow within the Synopsys’ Digital Design Family. Synopsys TestMAX works in conjunction with the latest Synopsys Silicon Lifecyle Management (SLM) technology for enhanced in-chip observability, silicon health and analytics, meeting both design and test goals concurrently.

This year we will be highlighting groundbreaking Test and SLM technologies that encompass integrated tools, IP and methodologies which enable optimized quality, performance and reliability at each phase of the device lifecycle from in-design, in-ramp, in-production and in-field.

See demonstrations on:

  • Advanced Logic/Memory Test
  • Functional Fault Simulation
  • Scan Test Over PCIe/USB/SPI
  • SLM Analytics at the Edge
