Inc., established in 1990, develops intellectual properties (IPs) for advanced
design-for-test (DFT) and design-for-debug/diagnosis (DFD) applications and licenses
them throughout the world, to semiconductor companies, system houses and design
service providers. The company has filed for more than 38 US/PCT patents of which
11 have been issued and 2 allowed. The Company¡¯s products improve an electronic
design¡¯s quality and reduce overall design and test costs. Various applications
that use these IPs include logic BIST, memory BIST, boundary scan synthesis, scan/ATPG
with test compression, concurrent fault simulation, silicon debug and diagnosis.
