Why It’s a Good Thing to Have Your Test Head in the Clouds
Steve Pateras, Synopsys Vice President Marketing, Hardware, Analytics & Test

Tuesday, May 17, 2022 | 9:50 – 10:40 a.m.

The premise behind the growing field of Silicon Lifecycle Management is that the success of today’s silicon devices and systems relies upon direct and continued management from design to manufacturing and all the way through to in-field deployment. This management is made possible by extracting as much actionable data as possible about the silicon at each lifecycle phase and applying analytics to drive valuable optimizations. This rich silicon data is obtained from an assortment of embedded environmental, structural, and functional monitors within each device. The resulting data is then either used locally within the device or system or sent to the cloud for detailed analysis.

The value of data-driven analytics during the manufacturing test phase of the silicon lifecycle is becoming much more widely seen. In this time of severe silicon device shortages, combined with ever increasing device and system complexities, the need to maximize both manufacturing yield and test efficiency has never been greater. A new test ecosystem is needed to enable secure, high-bandwidth data communication between devices on testers and analytics engines that are either near each tester for low latency actions or somewhere in the cloud for big-data driven optimizations.  Silicon vendors cannot afford to be in a fog when it comes to managing device production. Instead, having their test head up in the cloud is a much more sensible approach.

Podcast: Advantest Talks Semi

The VOICE of Silicon
Steve Pateras, Synopsys Vice President Marketing, Hardware, Analytics & Test

Broadcast Date: Monday, April 18, 2022

What would semiconductor chips say if every chip had its own “VOICE” and communicated in a variety of languages? Would self-driving cars talk among themselves rendering traffic a thing of the past? And would they continuously monitor and discuss their conditions and their life expectancies? Would chips be programmed to communicate directly with Advantest testers using their native languages? Listen in as Steve Pateras, vice president of marketing and strategic business development at Synopsys, Klaus Dieter Hilliges, Advantest 93000 platform extension manager, and I, Keith Schaub, vice president of technology and strategy at Advantest, discuss this revelation and some of the many innovations being showcased at the annual Advantest VOICE developer conference taking place May 17-18th 2022 at the OMNI Montelucia in Scottsdale, Arizona.
