Highly Efficient Scan Diagnosis With Dynamic Partitioning


Charged with the task of improving yield, product engineers need to find the location of defects in manufactured ICs quickly and efficiently. Typically, they use volume scan diagnosis to generate large amounts of data from failing test cycles, which is then analyzed to reveal the location of defects. Scan failure data provides the basis for many decisions in the failure analysis and yield impro... » read more

Improve Volume Scan Diagnosis Throughput 10X With Dynamic Partitioning


Performing volume scan diagnosis on today’s large, advanced node designs puts demands on turn-around-time and compute resources. This paper describes a new technique to maximize diagnosis throughput while performing ever more demanding scan diagnosis. The dynamic partitioning technology in Tessent Diagnosis enables in a 50% reduction in scan diagnosis time using only 20% of the typical memory... » read more
