Practices in Mixed-Signal and RF IC Testing
July/August 2007 (vol. 24 no. 4)
pp. 332-339
Saghir A. Shaikh, Cadence Design Systems
Most mixed-signal and RF IC testing in industry today involves specification-based testing using ATE. However, some companies employ alternative solutions to ATE testing that use DFT and BIST. This article presents a brief overview of common IC industry practices in mixed-signal testing and RF testing with emphasis on wired and wireless transceiver testing. The authors also discuss the testing challenges of system-in-package (SiP) technology, and present a few practiced DFT solutions.
Index Terms:
built-in tests, DFT, I/O testing, SiP testing, wireless transceiver testing, ATE
