iSTART-TEK (iSTART, TW-6786), a leading developer in memory testing and repairing technology, declared that renowned Taiwan IC design company adopts BRAINS, an integrated circuit development environment for memory testing and repairing, in fingerprint recognition IC chips. Moreover, the graphical user interface (GUI) of BRAINS not only dramatically increases usability and reduces learning curve, but also generate suitable memory testing circuits. This means that it shortens time of learning and setting functions. In addition, iSTART provides customized memory testing circuit development environment and in time technical support service to assist customers to shorten testing time as well as accelerate development time.
BRAINS can automatically group all kinds of memories to reduce defect rate per million (DPPM) of chips and assist users to easily create optimized BIST circuits. Also, iSTART provides customized memory testing circuit development environment to assist clients develop their own specific products. In summary, users can easily generate memory testing circuits according to actual product requirements via BRAINS. Its unique shared hardware architecture can provide a streamlining circuit architecture and shorten testing time, which reduces chip production costs and enhance product competitiveness.
