Overview

top

The background of this event is the continuing struggle with interoperability issues experienced in the flow and management of test data for semiconductor and system debug, diagnosis, yield learning, maintenance, and reliability.

Test is no longer the simple application of vectors to an IC or a board. Test has now expanded to include

  • Information gathering. We must collect information, not just for a particular device on a tester, but on trends and on the environment the device operates in, both in the system assembly factory and in the field.
  • Information sharing. Testing no longer takes place only within the walls of a company. We must share data with both vendors and customers, supply chain managers must understand vendor performance, and suppliers must collect field failure information from many customers in order to get a significant data sample to correct problems as quickly as possible.
  • Information analysis. We must be able to combine information from multiple sources, data mine it, and allow those with domain knowledge, rather than just database knowledge, to view it.

IOST3 provides a forum for the discussion of open source tools, open APIs, open databases and data architectures, and open processes to allow companies to more effectively use test information to improve quality and profitability.

Potential Presentation Topics

  • Open source tools for test generation, validation, analysis, and standards compliance testing.
  • Open source databases and open data architectures for storing test and performance data from multiple sources.
  • Database architectures that allow limited sharing of information while protecting proprietary information.
  • Visualization tools and data mining tools to access the data.
  • Open data collection processes for sharing information.
  • Open processes for unique identification of products and components across multiple companies, with traceability information.
  • Open APIs to allow collection of data from ATE, from other testers, and from systems under test in the factory and under test or in operation in the field.

Submissions
