Silicon Test and Yield Analysis
The Tessent® Product Suite
Tessent combines features of deterministic scan testing, embedded pattern compression, built-in self test, specialized embedded memory test and repair, and boundary scan, as well as board and system-level test technologies.
The Tessent product suite provides comprehensive silicon test and yield analysis solutions that address the challenges of manufacturing test, debug, and yield ramp for today’s SoCs. Built on the foundation of the best-in-class solutions for each test discipline, Tessent brings them together in a powerful test flow that ensures total chip coverage.

Tessent TestKompress with Cell-Aware Testing
"Cell-aware" automatic test pattern generation is being used to find the defects that occur within cells. Tessent TestKompress automates the analysis of cell libraries with a tool called CellModelGen and a language for creating user-defined fault models. This cell-aware methodology uses the physical characterization of cells to generate test patterns deterministically for potential defect locations.
