3D Yoga

I practice yoga because it helps with my flexibility. Of course, that’s a little like saying that lighting a candle helps with heating your house, but I digress. The point is, flexibility is generally a good thing, and that holds true for 3D ICs and their test strategies. As discussed in the Electrical Engineering Journal, a flexible 3D test strategy that uses a “plug-and-play” architecture allows multiple tests to use the same interface, simplifying the introduction and use of multiple tests. Structuring the architecture around the IJTAG standard also makes it easier to adjust to and adopt future test features. Having a test strategy you don’t have to bend over backwards to implement every time something changes? That’s true flexibility.

About Shelly Stalnaker

Shelly StalnakerI believe in the well-written sentence, the eye-catching title, and the satisfaction of hearing someone say, “Now I get it.” I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing the use of the passive tense in technical writing. I believe a writer can explain and entertain at the same time, and I believe that everyone, even in the business world, has a story to tell. Visit Foundry Solutions
