In-Product BTI Aging Sensor For Reliability Screening And Early Detection Of Material At Risk

We have developed a new reliability monitoring suite, within a proprietary IP block that we call a CV Core, with aging sensors embedded in the product layout and testable through the product I / O interface. We illustrate the application of the sensor suite with an example of the PMOS NBTI monitor, testable at the wafer level during product electrical wafer sort (EWS), as well after packaging a... » read more

In-field In-Mission Reliability Monitoring Based On Deep Data

This paper describes a Deep Data approach to reliability monitoring in advanced electronics, based on degradation as a precursor for failure. By applying machine learning algorithms and analytics to data created by on-chip monitoring IPs (Agents), IC/system health and performance can be continuously monitored, at all stages of the product lifecycle. Realtime degradation analysis of critical par... » read more
