The fast track to 3D-IC testing
Three-dimensional integrated circuit (3D-IC) systems offer the potential to deliver significant improvements in performance, power, functional density, and form factor over other packaging integration techniques. Despite substantial progress toward realizing 3D-IC systems, a variety of design, manufacturing, packaging, and testing issues still need to be addressed before cost-effective, high-volume production can be achieved. In this article we will focus on the test challenges and solutions, highlighting a design-for-3D-test architecture and implementation flow developed by researchers at Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) based on the Synopsys test solution.
