Implementing design for test (DFT) in 2.5/3D designs using Tessent multi-die software

February 9, 2023, 05:00 PM UTC


The tessent multi-die software from Siemens EDA enables automation for 3D ICs

Leveraging Tessent multi-die software for comprehensive automation of highly complex DFT tasks associated with 2.5 and 3D IC designs

Next-generation devices increasingly feature complex architectures that connect dies vertically (3D IC) or side-by-side (2.5D) so they behave as a single device. The new Tessent Multi-die software delivers comprehensive automation for the highly complex DFT tasks associated with these 2.5D and 3D IC designs.

Tessent Multi-die software automates the generation and insertion of IEEE 1838 compliant hardware, defining the IEEE test access architecture for three-dimensionally stacked or 2.5D side-by-side integrated circuits. This solution helps customers dramatically speed and simplify critical design-for-test (DFT) tasks for next-generation ICs based on these architectures.

What will attendees of the implementing DFT in 2.5D and 3D designs webinar learn?

Join us for this webinar to learn how:

  • Tessent Multi-die supports the IEEE 1838 standard, including how Tessent Streaming Scan Network (SSN) can be used as the Flexible Parallel Port (FPP) for the standard
  • Tessent tools can help with DFT implementation for 2.5D/3D ICs
  • Interconnect boundary scan-based patterns between the dies can be extracted using Boundary Scan Description Language (BSDL) from individual dies for 2.5D designs. Plus, unified package level BSDL creation in both 2.5D/3D devices
  • IJTAG complements both 2.5D and 3D test

Who should learn about implementing DFT in 2.5D/3D designs?

Anyone who needs to investigate DFT in 2.5D/3D IC design should learn more about implementation. People in the following roles should attend this webinar:

  • DFT engineers
  • Test engineers
  • Senior DFT managers
  • CAD directors
