Little Orphan Annie

automotiveDFTIs design-for-test the forgotten stepchild of IC design? Not any more, and DFT engineers can, in large part, thank the automotive industry. The number of processors built into a vehicle is steadily increasing, as we all know (okay, maybe not that guy driving the 1969 Chevy Camaro). These chips have to meet very high standards for quality and reliability, which means the companies who make them need both high-quality manufacturing tests and in-system tests. And of course, they’re supposed to do that without increasing test time or cost. In this article from EDN, Ron Press discusses how designers are making use of new test technologies and tools to meet the new standards.

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 third person and 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
