Design for Testability (DFT)

Design for Testability BlockContinuously shrinking process nodes have introduced new and complex on-chip variation effects creating new yield challenges. Combined with ever-increasing design complexity with multiple memories, mixed signal blocks and IPs from multiple vendors crammed into a single SoC, Design for Testability (DFT) implementation and Production Test signoff has become a major challenge. The T&VS asureDFT services suite helps you to overcome these challenges by establishing a DFT strategy that delivers improved DFT execution quality and reduced time-to market.
