WebCourse - Design for Testability 501 - Advanced DFT Techniques

What you will learn:
Boundary Scan pioneered a new approach to testability for board level. It is, however, important to integrate this with other forms of assembly. For today's complex circuits it may not be sufficient to test the boundary of the IC. Rather we will need to test inside the IC even when the IC is already mounted on a circuit board and when that board is already part of a module or system. This webinar will teach you about newer tools and the integration of those tools with traditional testability approaches.
While Boundary Scan served the digital board test, a need exists to handle analog circuits, using IEEE-1149.4, AC coupled circuits using IEEE-1149.6, and JTAG approaches within the IC using IEEE-1149.7. In this webinar we explore these and other standards or preliminary standards to increase the power of testability and further reduce the cost of test.

Who should attend:
This more advanced webinar is intended for those who have attended the other four in this series or who have the background to tackle these topics.
