This paper presents the impact of multiple-detect test patterns on outgoing product quality. It introduces an ATPG tool that generates multiple-detect test patterns while maximizing the coverage of node-tonode bridging defects. Volume data obtained by testing a production ASIC with these new multipledetect patterns shows increased defect screening(More)
The subject of this paper is variance reduction and Nearest Neighbor Residual estimates for IDDQ and other continuous-valued test measurements. The key, new concept introduced is datadriven neighborhood identification about a die to reduce the variance of good and faulty IDDQ distributions. Using LSI Logic production data, neighborhood selection techniques(More)
Maintaining product quality at reasonable test cost in very deep sub-micron process has become a major challenge especially due to multiple manufacturing locations with varying defect and parametric distributions. Increasing vector counts and binary search routines are now necessary for subtle defect screening. In addition, parametric tests and at-spec(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the cytologic features of each subtype of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) for separating the various subtypes. STUDY DESIGN Thirty-eight renal fine needle aspiration (FNA) specimens with surgical resection follow-up were retrospectively reviewed and classified without knowledge of the resection specimen diagnosis. These included 18 clear(More)
Transition delay fault (TDF) testing has become a necessary test method in very deep sub micron (VDSM) technologies due to the presence of resistive defects that cause subtle timing failures. The transition delay fault model is based on a slow-to-rise and slow-to-fall fault at each node in the circuit. Some resistive defects such as resistive vias actually(More)
BACKGROUND Early Warning Scores alert staff to preventable deterioration. Raised scores should lead to escalation of care. AIMS To establish response of staff to patients scoring National Early Warning Score (NEWS) of six or above and to identify patient and environmental factors affecting escalation by nursing staff. METHODS Service evaluation with(More)
those presented at the previous year’s symposium. A pool of candidates is selected based on the ratings provided by reviewers during the paper selection process, and the ratings of symposium attendees as recorded on the attendee feedback forms. These candidates are then evaluated by a committee that is composed of distinguished experts in the test(More)
In sub-micron CMOS processes, it has become increasingly difficult to identify and separate outliers from the intrinsic distribution at test. This is due to the increasing inadequacy of reliability screens such as burn-in and IDDQ testing. Statistical Post-Processing (SPP) methods have been developed to run off-tester using the raw data generated from(More)
