Title: Modular Testing of Core-Based System-on-Chip Integrated Circuits

Presenter: Dr. Krishnendu Chakrabarty

Abstract: The popularity of system-on-chip (SOC) integrated circuits has led to an unprecedented increase in test costs. This increase can be attributed to the difficulty of test access to embedded cores, as well as long test development and test application times. This talk will present design-for-testability techniques that facilitate low-cost SOC test. Topics to be covered include the recent IEEE 1500 standard for testing core-based SOCs and techniques for modular testing of digital SOCs. Test planning methods that involve the use of wrappers and test access mechanisms will be discussed. Test scheduling techniques for the concurrent testing of embedded cores at the SOC level will also be presented. Together, these techniques offer SOC integrators with the necessary means to manage test complexity and reduce test costs.

Biography: Dr. Krishnendu Chakrabarty received the B. Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, in 1990, and the M.S.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1992 and 1995, respectively, all in Computer Science and Engineering. He is now Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. Dr. Chakrabarty is a recipient of the National Science Foundation Early Faculty (CAREER) award, the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator award, the Humboldt Research Fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Germany, and several best papers awards at IEEE conferences. His current research projects include: testing of system-on-chip integrated circuits; microfluidic biochips; wireless sensor networks. He has authored seven books on these topics, and published over 250 papers in journals and refereed conference proceedings.

Prof. Chakrabarty is a Distinguished Visitor of the IEEE Computer Society for 2005-2007 and a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society for 2006-2007. He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems, IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and System I, IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, and ACM Journal on Emerging Technologies in Computing Systems. He is an Editor of IEEE Design & Test of Computers and of the Journal of Electronic Testing: Theory and Applications (JETTA). Prof. Chakrabarty is a senior member of IEEE, a senior member of ACM, and a member of Sigma Xi.
