Comprehensive, advanced design-for-test (DFT)
Synopsys TestMAX DFT is a comprehensive, advanced design-for-test (DFT) tool that addresses the cost challenges of testing designs across a range of complexities. TestMAX DFT supports all essential DFT, including boundary scan, scan chains, core wrapping, test points, and compression. These DFT structures are implemented through TestMAX Manager for early validation of the corresponding register transfer level (RTL), or with Synopsys synthesis tools to generate netlists.
Multiple codecs and architectures are supported that address the need for ever-higher levels of test data volume, test time reduction, and fewer test pins. TestMAX DFT leverages Synopsys Fusion Technology to optimize power, performance and area for the design, minimizing the impact from DFT.
