iStart Tek MBIST BISR SoC memory DFT


iSTART-TEK from Hsinchu, Taiwan provides EDA tools for SoC memory self-test and memory repair based on its many patents and 10 years experience with leading silicon foundries in Asia.

Todays SoCs demand larger embedded memories for advanced functions and memory repair is recommended by foundries for 40nm and smaller technologies.

EDA tools from iSTART-TEK help IC developers achieve design goals faster,  meet low power requirements and increase production test yield.

  • START –  SoC memory self-test (BIST) and memory repair (BISR) circuit generation and automatic insertion. START has significant advantages for hard and soft memory repair compared with Tessent and can be used as a point-tool within the Mentor DFT flow.

  • EZ-BIST – simple and easy generation of BIST circuits for SoCs with < 50  memory instances such as MCUs.
