Interposers play an important role in integrating multiple dies in a staked-die product. Prebond testing of interposers is an essential process for improving production yield. However, the traditional testing mechanism via probing is not appropriate, since it could destroy the fragile interposers. To this end, we propose a contactless testing methodology for prebond interposers. The testing... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In this paper, an all-digital process-variation-calibrated high-performance timing generator for an automatic test equipment is proposed. The proposed timing generator generates process-variation-tolerant variable delays for high and wide-range testing clock frequency. In order to increase the testing clock frequency, a channel of the proposed timing generator consists of four subtiming... Read more on IEEE Xplore

With the advent of rapidly evolving nanoelectronic systems, compact implementation of versatile and dense network-on-chips (NoCs) on a die has emerged as technology-of-choice for multicore computing. However, because of the increased density, NoCs often suffer from various types of manufacturing faults, which degrade the yield and jeopardize the reliability of the overall system. For example,...
