Can You Benefit from Cell-Aware Test?

Tessent Cell-Aware Test CoverageWith the move to small geometries, existing fault models such as stuck-at, transition, bridging, open, and small-delay are becoming less effective at ensuring desired quality levels. While these models only consider faults on cell inputs/outputs and interconnect lines between cells, more defects increasingly occur within the cell structures. A new cell-aware test that directly targets specific shorts, opens, and transistor defects internal to each standard cell is now available. But you don’t have to be working at the leading-edge nodes to benefit. Silicon results across a large range of technology nodes, from 350nm to FinFETs, have shown significant additional defect detection beyond standard stuck-at and transition patterns when using Cell-Aware ATPG. To learn more, download a copy of our white paper, Tessent Cell-Aware Test, and see how you can improve defect detection in your test processes.

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
