Featured Conference

austinInternational Test Conference

Austin, Texas
3–5 November

Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the conference focuses on the electronic test and design-for-test of devices, boards, and systems. Topics include board and system testing, defect-based testing, innovative industrial testing practices, and testing and design for manufacturability. Cooperative efforts on the part of academic­ groups, design tool and equipment suppliers, and test engineers to solve challenges facing the industry will be discussed. So will volume diagnosis, yield-learning adaptive testing, high-speed ­digital testing, and online testing.

SPONSORS: IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Philadelphia Section
