Teradyne’s DFT (Design for Testability) Software Group is developing a software system which enables semiconductor manufacturers to exploit DFTtechnologies in order to reduce test costs, accelerate time to market, and enhance yield. However, to make the best use of DFT, semiconductor manufacturers must also be able to easily manage and interpret the automatically generated test results along with existing semiconductor design information and new information produced by DFT diagnosis tools. This clinic project has created a Java and XML/XSLT based system to meet this need.
