Nasdaq: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for the design, verification and manufacture of electronic components and systems, today announced new capabilities in TetraMAX ATPG and Yield Explorer that decrease the time, effort and cost of deploying a volume diagnostics flow and speed-up yield ramp.
The latest capabilities in TetraMAX ATPG and Yield Explorer further reduce the time and effort needed to determine the underlying causes of subtle silicon defects.
The hierarchical ATPG
approach significantly reduces runtime and memory footprint compared to running ATPG
for all blocks and interconnect at the top level.
Working with Synopsys on their new ATPG
technology should produce faster ATPG
run times and significantly fewer test patterns to help us test first-silicon samples sooner and minimize time on the tester.
solutions based on Magma's advanced technology combined with our industry-leading logic BIST solution will ensure our customers have the tools necessary to meet all their logic test needs.
Performance Speedup Combined with a New Waveform Debugger Streamline Test Pattern Generation for Complex Designs
By purchasing CheckLogic Systems, Mentor Graphics can strengthen existing core DFT products and develop new products that offer a tight coupling of testability analysis, test synthesis, and ATPG
in a top-down design flow -- the most powerful DFT solution available today," stated Walden C.
This boost in ATPG
throughput has reduced the amount of time needed to generate high-quality manufacturing tests at Exar.
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including Synopsys' expectations of the benefits of the new ATPG
technology being demonstrated by Synopsys.
Until now, designers could not create tests to reliably detect these small added delays because traditional transition-delay ATPG
technologies lacked sufficient timing resolution.
For years, Synopsys customers have relied on TetraMAX ATPG
as a means to easily and inexpensively achieve high-quality digital testing," said Antun Domic, senior vice president and general manager, Synopsys Implementation Group.
ON Semiconductor is committed to utilizing best-in-class ATPG
and BIST technologies for product development," said Peter Zdebel, senior vice president and CTO at ON Semiconductor.
