The Meridian Design for Test (DFT) software identifies trouble spots to allow users to optimize testability during register transfer level (RTL) creation. It offers what-if analysis for DFT trade-offs and predicts automatic test pattern generation (ATPG) coverage of stuck-at and at-speed tests. Meridian DFT is designed to work with any ATPG or synthesis tool. Meridian DFT will be available in the third quarter. For pricing information, call Real Intent, Sunnyvale, CA. (408) 830-0700.
