Welcome to the 2013 IEEE North Atlantic Test Workshop (NATW)
Sponsored by the IEEE Boston Section, and in Cooperation with Test Technology Technical Council (TTTC) and the IEEE Green Mountain Section
The TTTC is a volunteer professional organization sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society.
The IEEE North Atlantic Test Workshop provides a forum for discussions on the latest issues relating to high quality, economical, and efficient test methodologies and designs. The 22nd NATW will feature a half day tutorial on Wednesday titled “VLSI Test and Security.” The program includes a keynote by Brian Gaucher (IBM) on Smart Power Grids and an invited address by Stephen Sunter (Mentor Graphics) on Analog/Mixed-signal Test. In addition to traditional topics, the 22nd NATW will feature a general theme of “Growing importance of Test and Hardware Security.”
Topics are not limited to, the following:
Analog, Mixed Signal & RF Testing
Built-In Self-Test (BIST)
Board Level Testing
Delay & Performance Testing
Diagnosis and Debug
FPGA & Embedded Core Testing
DFM, Defect Analysis & Defect-Based Testing
Memory & MEMS Testing
System-on-Chip (SoC) Test & Debug
Test Quality/System Reliability
Test Resource Partitioning
Testing for Soft Errors/Defects
