ITC 2019 Posters

ITC 2019 is pleased to present over fifty posters covering new research and industrial practices in test.  The poster session presents a unique opportunity for presenters and attendees to engage one-on-one in in-depth discussions of subjects that range from practical case studies to the first look at cutting edge “works in progress.”

Topics of this year’s session encompass all areas of test—from advances in ATE and Board Test, to Test Standards, to on-die test and DFT circuitry, to the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in test.  Test for automotive and safety-critical devices is well-represented, along with test specifically focused on RF, Analog, and Mixed-Signal devices.

No matter your interests or background, the ITC poster session is a great chance to ask questions, learn new test methods and applications, and make new connections with colleagues.
