How to Successfully Design for Testing or DFT

Design for testing or DFT consists of IC design techniques that add testability features to a hardware product design. The added features make it easier to develop and apply manufacturing tests to the designed hardware. The purpose of manufacturing tests is to validate that the product hardware contains no manufacturing defects that could adversely affect the product's correct functioning. [...]

High Performance, Low Power, And Test: DFT’s Impact on System PPA And Safety

As test grows in importance, earlier integration is key. Safety-critical semiconductor applications have driven test squarely into the functional specification and system architecture stages of design. Without the proper consideration of test, high levels of coverage in short test times is impractical. A poorly integrated test strategy results in negative impacts to system performance, power [...]

Design-For-Testability (DFT) Verified with Hardware Emulation

A DFT App enables execution of complete pattern sets for DFT verification in a reasonable time to shorten the pattern development cycle. Verification Consultant, Lauro Rizzatti, explores how an emulation session provides enough verification power to pull the DFT schedule within the time the project management has scheduled, thus accelerating the time to market, increasing [...]

A Unified DFT Verification Methodology

In today’s fast-growing SoC, incomplete or ineffective DFT support due to poor specification or loose design practices can quickly become the critical path to making market windows and delivering products within cost restrictions. This article highlights a unified DFT verification methodology, aimed at providing a complete, methodical and fully automated path from test specification to [...]
