Best Practices For Visibility Architecture Tap Planning


When it comes to data monitoring, ensuring proper access to network data is one of the most critical things you can do. Missing and incorrect data will slow down the analysis of problems by your security monitoring and tools. It may also lead to false conclusions by those tools. In turn, this can lead to missed security threats, false positives for security threats and network impairments, and ... » read more

Novel E-Beam Techniques For Inspection And Monitoring


In this paper, we report an advanced e-beam defect inspection tool (eProbe®250) and the Design-for-Inspection™ (DFI) system that has been built and deployed by PDF Solutions down to 4nm FinFET technology nodes. This tool has a very high throughput which allows for in-line inspection of nanometer-level defects in the most advanced technology nodes. We also present eProbe applications for... » read more

Autoencoder-Based Characterisation Of Passive IEEE 802.11 Link Level Measurements


Wireless networks are indispensable in today’s industrial manufacturing and automation. Due to harsh signal propagation conditions as well as co-existing wireless networks, transmission failures resulting in severe application malfunctions are often difficult to diagnose. Remote wireless monitoring systems are extremely useful tools for troubleshooting such failures.However, the completeness ... » read more

Enabling The Next Step In IC Test And Monitoring


Product lifecycle management (PLM) is a well-established concept across many industries that aims to manage the entire lifecycle of a product from inception through design, realization, deployment, and field service, right through to end-of-life activities such as final disposal. More recently, these principles are being applied by the semiconductor industry because electronics continue to p... » read more

Multi-Layer Deep Data Performance Monitoring And Optimization


Combining functional and parametric monitoring of the real-world behavior of complex SoCs provides a powerful new approach that facilitates performance optimization during development and in the field, improves security and safety, and enables predictive maintenance to prevent field failures. proteanTecs’ Universal Chip Telemetry (UCT) and Siemens’ Tessent Embedded Analytics are complementa... » read more

Chips Good Enough To Bet Your Life On


Semiconductor Engineering sat down to discuss automotive electronics reliability with Jay Rathert, senior director of strategic collaborations at KLA; Dennis Ciplickas, vice president of advanced solutions at PDF Solutions; Uzi Baruch, vice president and general manager of the automotive business unit at OptimalPlus; Gal Carmel, general manager of proteanTecs' Automotive Division; Andre van de ... » read more

Avoiding Gloom With Better Knowledge


The rate of product development is facing very real challenges as the pace of silicon technology evolution begins to slow. Today, we are squeezing the most out of transistor physics, which is essentially derived from 60-year-old CMOS technology. To maintain the pace of Moore’s law, it is predicted that in 2030 we will need transistors to be a sixth of their current size. Reducing transistor s... » read more

Mission Profiles


In the field of electronic systems, the mission profile has been one of the key concepts since the start of the scientific examination of the subject of reliability. Its exact meaning varies with time and the industry using it. In particular, over the course of increasing digitalization and networking in the context of IoT and the opportunities resulting from this, the subject of mission profil... » read more

Integrated Software For CompactRIO


Embedded software tools today are fragmented. This forces developers to waste time stitching together IDEs, compilers, debuggers, trace tools, profilers, and other disparate pieces in their toolboxes. Then they have to make these pieces cooperate with each other. Furthermore, these same developers must spend months building, testing, and debugging all the dependencies of an OS, middleware, a bo... » read more
