DFT 2022 : 35th IEEE International Symposium on Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI and Nanotechnology Systems, October 2022, USA
Conference Series : Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI and Nanotechnology Systems
Call For Papers
DFT is an annual Symposium providing an open forum for presentations in the field of defect and fault tolerance in VLSI and nanotechnology systems inclusive of emerging technologies. One of the unique features of this symposium is to combine new academic research with state-of-the-art industrial data, necessary ingredients for significant advances in this field. All aspects of design, manufacturing, test, reliability, and availability that are affected by defects during manufacturing and by faults during system operation are of interest. Topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Yield Analysis and Modeling
Defect/fault analysis and models; statistical yield modeling; diagnosis; critical area and other metrics.
- Testing Techniques
Built-in self-test; delay fault modeling and diagnosis; testing for analog and mixed circuits; online testing; signal and clock integrity.
- Design For Testability in IC Design
