"The Cadence Modus Test Solution supports the ARM MBIST interface and its many benefits," said Teresa McLaurin, fellow and director, technology services group, ARM. "One feature is automation of the physical-to-logical mapping capability that bridges the definition of logical memories to a customer's unique physical memory configuration, simplifying the task of integrating MBIST for ARM IP in their products."
"We launched the Modus Test Solution earlier this year to address escalating manufacturing test costs. Its patented 2D Elastic Compression technology delivers up to 3X reduction in manufacturing test costs," said Paul Cunningham, vice president of research and development in the Digital & Signoff Group at Cadence. "Since then, we've continued to expand the Modus Test Solution's technical capabilities, and by working with ARM, we're enabling customers to easily incorporate ARM IP and Cadence flows in order to bring competitive, safety-critical SoCs to market."
The Cadence Modus Test Solution is a comprehensive next-generation physically aware design-for-test (DFT), ATPG and silicon diagnostics tool. Using the Modus Test Solution, customers can experience up to 3X reduction in test time using its patented physically aware 2D Elastic Compression architecture, without any impact on fault coverage or chip size.
