Grenoble, France – November 10, 2014-- Dolphin Integration supply leading fabless companies for more than 25 years with dozens of audio converters which have been used in millions of SoCs.
The cost of Industrial Test can represent up to 35 % of the fabrication cost. Therefore, the challenge is to keep the industrial test cost as low as possible while ensuring high reliability products.
Mixed-signal âˆ†∑ converters from Dolphin Integration benefit from the following enhancements:
- Loopback capabilities
Possibility to simultaneously test the functionality of ADC and DAC using logic testers through an analog loop-back path.
- Dedicated modes and analysis
Reduction of start-up time thanks to optimized register settings: the register settings are fully described in the User Manual for reducing test duration.
Reduction of the acquisition time for performing needed verifications: the test guidelines are available as a standard deliverable.
divide on average by 5 the industrial testing time of the audio part. They also facilitate all qualification tests.
Beyond mixed-signal audio converters, Dolphin Integration offer
pure logic audio converters (with PWM DAC and ADC filters for digital microphones), which are the most convenient solutions for some Audio applications. For this kind of audio converter, the user thus takes benefit from the speed of a pure logic ATPG test, avoiding complex and expensive analog verifications.
