Multi-site Networking

Better technology is better business



The new multi-site units can be networked so the user can test up to 512 ICs using one PC to control the entire operation. This gives the customer greater flexibility in terms of increasing testing capacity on as need basis. Cost are minimized since there will be no need for additional man labor to handle the increased capacity.

Powerful Integration Tool


Combination of Failures

  • Functional Failure: Cell stuck-at, coupling, neighborhood sensitivity and software error faults
  • Parametric Failure: (AC) Speed timing vs. Vdd threshold, (DC) Leakage and Idd's
  • Hot-Temperature Failure: System high temperature environment

GUI Failure Analysis


Shmoo Plot

A two-dimensional diagram that shows the status of the DQ bits of Memory ICs varying over a range of the user's selected parameters (timing and input voltage level).



Bit Failure Mapping

A tool that helps the user to find and display the failed DQ bits in the RAM. The corresponding row and column addresses the failed DQ bits, which will be spotted and displayed for the user.



Graphical Identification of DQ's

Represents the failed DQ pins locations, graphically.
The software uses a graphical picture to show the test failures at the hardware level:

If the IC fails during the test, there would be indications (displayed in RED) marking the
failed pin(s) and signal(s).



Script Code Function Optional

TurboCATS Limited designed a new feature called the Script Code in the new DDR3/DDR4 test system, the TCIII-2667IC test system. In the new system, the user can use the script programming language to create a customized test pattern. It can support up to maximum 2048 data patterns (optional). Once the pattern is created, the Script Code pattern generator/compiler is used to compile the code and then generate the new test pattern.


Script Code Debugger


The Script Code function also serves as a powerful compiler/debug tool. It contains a built-in compiler and debugger for the Script Code programming which allows the customer to monitor the timing waveform of the programming algorithm as well as the timing bus transactions. This is all accomplished under the Signal Tap tool.

The new pattern is then imported into the test list and gives the customer a customized pattern with AC (tSU, tWD, tSAC, tRCD, tCL, tAL, tWR, tRP, tRC, tREF, tRFC, etc.) and DC (Vdd, Vref) parameters for testing their product. In addition to the above, the customer can also create a motherboard test pattern algorithm using the Script Code function.
