Multiplexing ATE Channels for Production Testing at 2.5 Gbps
July/August 2004 (vol. 21 no. 4)
pp. 288-301

For industry, volume-production-stage testing of multigigahertz ICs poses economic challenges that are at least as significant as the associated technical challenges. Here, the authors address both issues by describing a practical solution based on the retrofit of conventional ATE resources to allow accurate testing of ICs with many channels. Their system can test ICs at 2.5 Gbps over 144 channels, with extensions planned that will have test rates exceeding 5 Gbps.
