MEMS Need Comprehensive, Market-Ready Solutions

Fri, 7 Jul 2013
Microelectromechanical systems -- commonly known as MEMS -- applications are on the rise. In fact, the MEMS market is currently outpacing overall IC market growth at a rate that is twice as fast and is expected to be a $20B US market as early as 2017. Why the uptick in MEMS use? The consumer (primarily handheld) and automotive markets hold the answer for now, but other market sectors such as me...

A Comparison of High-Purity Fluoropolymer Fitting Technologies

Wed, 11 Nov 2012
When selecting a fluoropolymer fitting design to be used in ultra high-purity chemical applications, decision makers must consider different performance characteristics. A recent study was conducted that measured key fitting attributes, such as fitting pull-out force, cleanliness and assembly time. The study compared commercially available nonwetted insert, flare, and wetted insert style fittin...

Flip Chip Devices get Flat and Happy

Mon, 3 Mar 2013
Thin is definitely in, but what our modern flip chip devices really want is to be flat and happy! As flip chip die have become increasingly thinner in recent years, the ability to control package warpage –i.e. maintain a relative degree of “flatness” -- has become more and more challenging. And, it’s not just the die that are getting thinner: substrates also have much lower profiles than ever b...

Automated Test Creation for Mixed Signal IP using IJTAG

Fri, 1 Jan 2013
The creation of test patterns for mixed signal IP has been, to a large extent, a manual effort. To improve the process used to test, access, and control embedded IP, the new IEEE P1687 standard 1 is being defined by a broad coalition of IP vendors, IP users, major ATE companies, and all three major EDA vendors. This new standard, also called IJTAG, is expected to be rapidly and widely adopted b...

Rapid Defect Indentification with Layout-Aware Diagnosis

Fri, 4 Apr 2013
Scan logic diagnosis is a powerful tool to help failure analysis engineers determine the root cause of a failing die. Yield engineers, on the other hand, are interested in statistical analysis of volumes of high-quality diagnosis results to determine yield limiters. To be of value for both engineers, a diagnosis tool needs to be Accurate, With high resolution and Meaningful defect classificati...

The Next Step in Diagnosis Resolution Improvement

Thu, 4 Apr 2014
Root Cause Deconvolution (RCD), a statistical enhancement technology recently made available in Mentor Graphics’ Tessent Diagnosis and YieldInsight products, is the next step in diagnosis resolution enhancement. It works by analyzing multiple layout-aware diagnosis reports together to identify the underlying defect distribution (root cause distribution) that is most likely to explain this set of diagnosis results. The results are then back- annotated to the individual diagnosis suspects.
