Moving DFT into chip design with hardware emulation

Design for Testability (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.

Verification Consultant, Lauro Rizzatti, describes how hardware emulation provides enough verification power to move DFT into the chip design thus accelerating the time to market, improves performance, increasing the yield, and ultimately augmenting profits.

Find out how T&VS hardware emulation services allow verifying the robustness of a design and helps optimize the design for improved performance.

Design for Testability (DFT)

Continuously 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.
