With introduction of new nanometer technologies that use 90 nanometers or smaller geometry, semiconductor test costs have been growing steadily and it is important to attack this cost increase as well as tackle new problems associated with nanometer devices. This has led to a renewed interest in DFT methodologies and technologies. This new book is a comprehensive guide to new as well as existing, well-proven DFT techniques that will show the readers how to design a testable and quality product, drive down test cost, improve product quality and yield, as well as speed up time-to-market and time-to-volume.
"Most importantly, the book covers industry practices commonly found in commercial DFT tools but not discussed in other books", said Dr. Ravi Apte, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at SynTest Technologies, Inc., "There are many recent advances covered in the book, including at-speed testing for scan and logic built-in self-test (BIST) applications, test compression for reducing scan test cost, memory fault simulation, DRAM BIST, memory built-in self-repair (BISR), and future test technology trends. Numerous, practical examples in each chapter illustrating basic VLSI test principles and DFT architectures make this book a very valuable reference for engineers and managers practicing in the DFT field."
