TTTC's Electronic Broadcasting Service
Test Track at the
April 16-20, 2007
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Design, Automation and Test in Europe conference and exhibition is the main European event bringing together design automation researchers, users and vendors, as well as specialists in the design, test, and manufacturing of electronic systems and circuits. One of the tracks of DATE is devoted to Methods, Tools and Innovative Experiences in Testing Electronic Circuits and Systems. At DATE 2007, we aim at the increase in the test area, and would really like to invite you to submit your contributions to the test track.
This five-day event consists
of a conference with plenary keynotes, regular papers,
interactive presentations, panels and hot-topic sessions, tutorials, master
courses and workshops, as well as a Designers’ Forum. DATE is also
Europe’s leading commercial exhibition showing
the state-of-the-art in design and test tools, methodologies, IP and design
services. Both the conference and the exhibition, together with the many
user group meetings, fringe meetings, university booth and social events
offer a wide variety of opportunities to meet and exchange information.
|Test Topic Areas|
The test track is organised in six topics. These topics together with their chairs and area descriptions are given as follows.
T1 System and Industrial
Testing at various levels of a system: embedded core, System-on-Chip, System-in-Package, board, system; Network-on-Chip test; system-level debug and validation; hardware/software system test; processor-based test; infrastructure IP; industrial test: test equipment, including ATE hardware and software, probe stations, handlers; multi-site testing; economics of test; case studies
T2 Design for Test
Design for test, debug and manufacturability; built-in self-test and built-in diagnosis; synthesis for testability; test resource partitioning, embedded test; test data compression; scan-based test and diagnosis; BIST for memories and regular structures.
T3 Test Generation,
Simulation and Diagnosis
Test pattern generation; high-level TPG; delay TPG; fault simulation; test generation for validation, debug and diagnosis; low-power TPG; TPG for memories and FPGAs.
T4 On-Line Testing,
Fault Tolerance, and Reliability
Transient fault evaluation; soft error susceptibility; on-line testing and fault tolerance for signal integrity; concurrent monitors and diagnosis; robust design; coding techniques; in-field testing and diagnosis; on-line testing; high availability systems; high reliability systems; reliability and dependability evaluation; safety; security; availability; reliability; hardware/software recovery; self-repair; fault tolerance; on-line testing and fault tolerance for industrial applications
T5 Testing of Analog,
Mixed-Signal, RF and Heterogeous Circuits and Systems
Failure modeling techniques for heterogeneous (analog/mixed-signal/RF/ MEMs/optics) circuits and systems; Fault simulation and test generation algorithms and coverage metrics; Low cost test techniques for high-performance RF and multi-GHz electronics and effective defect screening techniques; Testing of embedded MEMs/bio-MEMs/RF/ optics modules; Design-for-testability and built-in self-test (BIST) techniques for analog and mixed signal circuits; Test-diagnosis-repair of analog and mixed signal circuits; Industrial case studies
T6 Statistical, Physical,
Defect-Based Testing and Test of Regular Structures
Includes techniques, circuits, and methodologies for test and detection of defects including non-visual, physical level, and parameter variation considerations, defect modelling, defect diagnosis, failure analysis, yield analysis, fault modelling, IDDx testing, Very Low Voltage testing, multiparameter testing, temperature testing, DFM and DFY, signal integrity and test methods analysis, as well as test techniques for regular structures such as RAM, FPGA, regular fabrics, EEPROM, and flash memory
All manuscripts must be submitted for review electronically, following the instructions on the conference Web page:
The accepted file formats are PDF and Postscript. Manuscripts received in hard-copy form will not be processed.
Papers can be submitted for either standard oral presentation or for interactive presentation. Standard oral presentations require novel and complete research work supported by experimental results, and are held in front of a full audience. Besides these, DATE will again include interactive presentations of novel ideas that may require additional research or lack experimental data. Presentations are given on a laptop in a face-to-face discussion area.
Submissions should not exceed 6 pages in length for oral-presentation and 2 pages in length for interactive-presentation papers, and should be formatted as close as possible to the final format: A4 or letter sheets, double column, single spaced, Times or equivalent font of minimum 10pt (templates are available on the DATE Web site for your convenience). To permit blind review, submissions should not include the author names. Any submission not in line with the above rules will be discarded.
All papers will be evaluated with regard to their suitability for the conference, originality and technical soundness. The Programme Committee reserves the right to accept interesting contributions that do not meet the criteria for standard oral presentations, as interactive presentations.
