Pre-silicon debug - shorter Time To Market


How does pre-silicon debug help ?


The table shows the different possible reasons for tests failures on tester


Pre-silicon debug helps clear the artificial fail reasons and focus on real silicon vs device model differences causing such failures.





Reasons for failures on tester

Virtual tester solution

Tester incompatible tests (Design issue)

Acts as tester thus reveals tester incompatibilities

Problematic conversion from simulation to ATE (Test Engineering)

Highlights bad conversion issues as test fails in simulation

Simulation Model and real Silicon mismatch (Production issues)

Focus only on Model – Silicon mismatch
