Solution Increases Efficiency of Post-Silicon Bring-Up

The STAR™ (self-test and repair) Silicon Browser is designed to debug and diagnose system issues in the chip bring-up process. It provides STAR Memory System users with direct access and interactive communications with the internal circuitry of an internally developed or third-party SOC memory system.

The browser can extract embedded memory contents to perform multicorner characterization and assess reliability and temperature dependencies. It also allows a user to classify and correlate defects, analyze redundancy utilization, and localize physical failures by zooming into the physical structure and locations of memory instances based on retrieved memory failures.

The STAR Memory System consists of test and repair register transfer level IP, design automation tools, manufacturing automation tools, MASIS memory description language, and STAR Yield Accelerator.
