Design to Tester conversion
ATE (automated Test Equipment) is hardware and as such is cycle and edge restricted. The design simulation environment (EDA) is software based and as such is not restricted at all.
Test Insight design to tester solutions address the need to adjust test patterns created using EDA simulation environment to match individual ATE restrictions. The software solutions automate adjustment of both functional and scan based simulation data to most common used tester equipment.
Minimize cycle types since Testers are limited in cycle types
Minimize number of edges as Testers are limited in number of edges
Minimize total number of vectors to reduce test cost
Allow protocol based tester vectors
Mask events as required for stable production test
Align simulation events to match tester restrictions
