Embedded memories represent, in most cases, the largest contributor to yield loss on a die, due to the very large area and density of these regular circuits. A successful memory strategy must incorporate an efficient and effective test and repair methodology in order to achieve maximum quality and yield levels without impacting test times or time-to-market goals. LogicVision's ETMemory solution provides a comprehensive, integrated and low-area overhead solution for at-speed test and repair of embedded memories. The solution provides unique automation for integrating and verifying embedded memory test and repair capabilities within even the most complex designs. Once integrated, these capabilities not only provide the highest quality test, but also deliver crucial yield improvement through optimized on-chip repair analysis and eFuse management.
"LogicVision has a long track record of delivering the most advanced BIST solutions," said John F. Brown III, Vice President of IC Engineering at Tilera. "The standards-based, hierarchical architecture of the ETMemory product enables us to develop an efficient, cost-effective design flow for adding advanced test capabilities to our designs."
"We are continuously working to deliver the industry's most advanced memory test and repair solution," said Stephen Pateras, Vice President of Marketing at LogicVision. "Having a leading-edge company such as Tilera choose our solution for their test and yield improvement needs clearly strengthens our position as the industry standard for memory BIST."
Tilera Corporation is the industry leader in highly-scalable general purpose multicore processors for the embedded market. Tilera's TILE(TM) processors are based on an innovative iMesh(TM) architecture that scales to hundreds of RISC-based cores on a single chip. The distributed nature of Tilera's revolutionary architecture and the standards-based tools, such as C/C++ compiler, GNU tools and Eclipse IDE, provide an unprecedented combination of performance, power efficiency and programming flexibility. Tilera was founded in October 2004 and launched its first product, the 64-core processor, in August 2007. The company is headquartered in San Jose, Calif. with locations in Westborough, Mass., and Beijing.
About LogicVision Inc.
LogicVision (NASDAQ: LGVN) provides a comprehensive set of proprietary built-in-self-test (BIST) technologies for achieving the highest quality silicon manufacturing test while reducing test costs for complex System-on-Chip devices. LogicVision's Dragonfly Test Platform(TM) enables integrated circuit designers to embed BIST functionality into a semiconductor design. This functionality is used during semiconductor production test and throughout the useful life of the chip. The complete Dragonfly Test Platform, including the ETCreate(TM), Silicon Insight(TM) and Yield Insight(TM) product families, improves profit margins by reducing device field returns and test costs, accelerating silicon bring-up times and shortening both time-to-market and time-to-yield.
