September 19, 2012 -- Embedded memories are the most-dense components within a system-on-chip (SOC), accounting for more than 50% of the chip area. Designed using aggressive design rules, embedded memories tend to be more prone to manufacturing defects and field reliability problems than any other core on the chip. This webinar discusses a number of advanced embedded memory test solution capabilities. These includ hierarchical implementation and validation, fault detection in very-deep-submicron technologies, repair at the manufacturing level, diagnosis for process improvement and field repair and error-correction (ECC) capabilities that address today's design yield and reliability needs.
