News | iSTART-TEK Introduces EZ-BIST Lite for MCU Chip Customers

By July 31, 2023February 19th, 2024No Comments

Microcontrollers (MCUs) play a critical role in the global semiconductor industry, including applications in consumer electronics, automotive electronics, IoT, and industrial use. To assist MCU chip suppliers in expediting memory test circuit development, iSTART-TEK has launched EZ-BIST Lite, a memory test circuit development environment tailored for MCU chips. EZ-BIST Lite features a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI) to facilitate the experience for first-time users in memory test circuit development (Figure 1).

iSTART-TEK is Asia’s only EDA tool and IP provider that specializes in memory testing and repair circuit development. To enable more MCU-relevant chip suppliers to access customized memory EDA tools, iSTART-TEK has introduced EZ-BIST Lite, specifically designed for the MCU chip suppliers. EZ-BIST Lite is license fee-free, significantly reducing the cost for MCU customers in using memory test circuit development environments. Its user-friendly GUI interface ensures easy adoption, effectively lowering the technical barriers during tool implementation. In the future, iSTART-TEK will charge a royalty fee once the customer’s chip that utilizes EZ-BIST Lite reaches the mass production stage.
