Figuring Out Binary Datalog Formats Without A Specification


Being in the realm of semiconductor data with a wide range of customers, companies often throw interesting technical challenges at us. The most complex one so far this year is probably a request (OK, a requirement!) to interpret binary test datalog files so that they can then be analysed from our yieldHUB database system. The company provided us with little information on the actual binary form... » read more

5 Important Tips For Working With STDF


The STDF datalog format developed by Teradyne has become the de facto standard in datalog formats in the semiconductor industry as most modern ATE manufacturers support the format. Data processing of the STDF files often require reading the binary files and converting them to formats that are human-readable or for input into a database. It is also possible that the STDF file is converted to ATD... » read more
