DTS’20 Workshops

Workshop 1

Challenges and Emerging Solutions in Testing Embedded IO interfaces in 2.5D and 3D Systems

Workshop Summary:
In response to the increasing challenges in maintaining technology advancements through traditional scaling at a pace consistent with or exceeding Moore's Law, alternative methods to achieve enhanced system level performance are becoming increasingly important. Three-dimensional integrated circuit (3D IC) and 2.5D IC with Si interposer are regarded as promising candidates to overcome the limitations of Moore’s law because of their advantages of lower power consumption, smaller form factor, higher performance, and higher function density. Systems using embedded DRAM interconnected via a high density substrate with interposer-like technologies or via Thru-Silicon Via (TSV) are being introduced in a broad array of products.

In this workshop we present testability methodology practices for 2.5D and 3D products with embedded IO interfaces. As opposed to conventional testing, 2.5D and 3D ICs test flows are more complex and new DFx methodologies will be presented that provide good coverage and visibility to isolate failures in High Volume Manufacturing.

Workshop 2

RiskStorming & Brand your Strategy

Workshop Summary:
In this workshop, Emna Ayadi wants to reignite your strategic fire by placing you in small groups with your colleagues. Together you will devise a strategy for a real-life product which includes methods, tools, and planning. However, just like in reality, the context will change, and our strategy must change accordingly to aptly react to that change. The workshop will use the TestSphere cards as a support to spark discussions and for bolstering your strategy. You will also cover how to:

  • Carry out the RiskStorming phase 1, 2, 3
  • Create a one-page test plan
  • Revise test plans
  • Pitch a strategy Outcomes

Participants of this workshop will learn how to:
* Work as a team to discuss and describe a strategy to tackle a real-life case and problem.
* Work out a proposal to convince their manager of tools, methods, and planning
Use the TestSphere cards as help and inspiration.

Workshop is limited to 18 participants
Workshop Duration : 2h30 min
Required material : 2 Big Tables each table contains 9 participants
