Up And Away: Clear-Eyed Considerations For Your Cloud-Adoption Journey


It’s no secret the cloud is a driving force powering the digital transformation. However, cloud adoption is rarely a one-size-fits-all operation. Even when done correctly, it can bring about company-wide transformations unique to each organization. At the very core, the move to the cloud is akin to a culture change, and understanding these changes can make the transition successful. The follo... » read more

Minimizing Execution Risk In Test Solution Development


Test development projects are a mix of engineering disciplines with a complex and interdependent ecosystem. The ability to assess risks and their impact on the entire project can be the difference between success and failure. A technical project lead provides a single point of responsibility for assessing technical risk across the project, developing mitigation plans, and driving countermeasure... » read more

Leverage Functional Interfaces For High-Speed Test Access During All Phases Of The Silicon Lifecycle


Chip testing used to be straightforward. The development team used fault simulation to select a subset of the functional tests that could detect most possible manufacturing faults. These were translated to test patterns that ran on automated test equipment (ATE) to screen out defective dies at wafer test and bad packaged chips in final test. Lots of new technology was introduced over time, incl... » read more

Chip Data Joins The Party


Perhaps you’ve heard of silicon lifecycle management (product lifecycle management for your semiconductor) but considered it a “far-future” practice that you can safely ignore for now. While many pieces of a complete silicon lifecycle solutions (SLS) are not yet in place, the components are coming together every day. Today, in fact, Siemens’ Tessent offers a new suite of software ser... » read more

Are Tiny MicroLEDs The Next Big Thing For Displays?


One of the latest emerging trends is a renewed focus on microLED technology. What is a microLED, and why is the industry focusing on this technology? As the name suggests, a microLED, or µLED, is a light-emitting diode (LED) – roughly 100 times smaller than conventional LEDs. MicroLEDs can be arranged into arrays to make high-resolution displays for applications ranging from smartwatches... » read more

Center Stage: The Time For Hybrid Bonding Has Arrived


When the subject of hybrid bonding is brought up in the industry, the focus is often on how this technique is used to manufacture CMOS image sensors (CIS), an essential device for today’s digital cameras, particularly those found in smartphones. As such, CIS is a common touchpoint given the ubiquity of mobile phones, whether you hold a product from Apple, Samsung, or Huawei in your hands. ... » read more
