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
