The Financial Justification For System-Level Test

Conventional methods for testing have run out of steam, so what comes next?


Three unique trends are currently transforming high-volume manufacturing in the semiconductor industry:

  • The increasing complexity of chip architectures (e.g., FinFET, heterogeneous integration);
  • The explosion in the breadth and ubiquity of consumer electronics (e.g. IoT, mobile, and automotive), and
  • Consumer expectations of a constant stream of newer, cheaper, more advanced nodes.

These trends have had a distinct effect on the testing process, which must meet stringent targets when it comes to the quality, volume, speed and, above all, cost of production.

Conventional methods of semiconductor testing have reached the limit of their capabilities, rendering them inadequate for this rapidly involving industry. To read more, click here.
