10 Problem Statement 17/10/ Inputs W ATE channels, W TAM bit width n Cores C i Problem Determine optimal number of sub-buses Determine compression ratio on every bus Core assignment/scheduling for minimal test time compression increases test parallelism but may increase individual test time

11 Algorithm Outer loop For each ATE channel partition For each compatible TAM partition Find best core assignment (the lowest total test time) If this assignment decreases global test time memorize architecture and its associated scheduling 17/10/200711

12 Algorithm Outer loop Inner loop For each ATE channel partition For each compatible TAM partition Find best core assignment (the lowest total test time) If this assignment decreases global test time memorize architecture and its associated scheduling Initial Solution Put each core on the smallest possible bus Compute test time Improvement Find bus Bi which has the longest test time For each core on Bi, For all other bus Bj ( j ≠ i ) move core from Bi to Bj Compute test time Move core C from Bi to Bj so that test time is smallest 17/10/200712

13 Core test time vs Compression 17/10/ Indentification: Test Time = (  / compression ratio) + 

14 Core test time vs Compression 17/10/ Indentification: Test Time = (  / compression ratio) + 

18 Data Compression for System testing Test width reduction is the primary goal higher test parallelism without ATE cost Method for exploring architectural solutions one compressor for all cores, one compressor per core, no compressor... independant of the compression technique Test time reduction > 50% 17/10/ Conclusion
