Maximum Coverage, Low DPPM, Minimum Cost and Improved Yield are the key performance indicators for any successful chip design company to master the art of DFT.
At BlackPepper we have a highly skilled and experienced team rendering services both in Front End and Backend DFT. Our primary focus is to provide silicon with least defects and optimized test time which in turn reduce the cost. Our DFT methodology provides a complete solution including MBIST, regular scan, AC scan, scan compression, boundary scan (JTAG), power aware test and ATPG, to achieve limit tending to 100% test coverage. We have been supporting customers across the globe on the whole spectrum of DFT flow from test architecture definition all the way to silicon bring up.
As a unit we offer our services in the following key areas.
