SynTest Adds Linux Platform Support For Its DFT Solutions
Linux Speeds DFT Tool Performance Two to Five Times
SUNNYVALE, Calif., USA, May 24, 2000 -- SynTest Technologies, Inc., an
SynTest's products improve a design's testability and fault coverage and result in reduced defect levels and tester time.
L.-T. Wang, SynTest's President and CEO, noted, "The benchmarks we ran last year validated that Linux was a viable platform for our DFT tools. We are adding Linux support in answer to customer requests and as part of our strategy to maintain our position as a leading supplier of DFTsolutions."
Wang noted, "For
many of our customers tool performance is critical and our Linux tools
run two to five times faster than with other operating systems, depending
upon the workstation
processor type and clock speed. This is in addition to the already five
to twenty times speed
advantage that they have over competing solutions."
Price and availablity
All of SynTest's DFT, BISTand ATPG tools are available for Linux and Unix platforms. These include: TurboBIST T, a memory BIST suite; TurboBSDT, a boundary-scan test suite; TurboCheckT, a gate-level and RTL design and testability analyzer; TurboFaultT, a fast fault simulator; and TurboScanT, a full-scan and partial-scan synthesis and ATPG program.
