The Tutorials & Education Group (TEG) of the IEEE Computer Society Test Technology Technical Council (TTTC) organizes in 2020 Test Technology Tutorials to be held in conjunction with TTTC sponsored Asian Test Symposium 2020 (ATS 2020) in November 22-25. Penang, Malaysia. The tutorials accepted by the Program Committee will be included in the Test Technology Educational Program, the intent of which is to serve the test and design professionals offering fundamental education and expert knowledge in state-of-the-art test technology topics.

TTEP accommodates a wide range of technical areas, from mature test topics of high interest to industrial test engineers to emerging test topics with emphasis on novelty. TTEP is soliciting new and updated tutorial proposals, as well as proposals for Test Clinics, which are particularly geared towards newcomers to the area of test, such as new test engineers and students pursuing graduate studies in test, with an objective of offering a broad yet comprehensive review of basic test topics in an accessible way to the lay audience. The topics of interest for ATS 2020 tutorials include (but are not limited to):

  • 3D chip testing
  • Artificial Intelligence for test
  • Automatic test equipment
  • Board-level testing
  • Built-in self-test (BIST)
  • Defect oriented testing
  • Design for testability
  • Diagnosis and debug
  • Embedded core testing
  • Failure analysis techniques
  • Functional safety
  • High-speed interface testing
  • Memory testing
  • Mixed-Signal/Analog testing
  • Nanometer technology testing
  • On-line and In-field testing
  • Performance/Delay testing
  • Microprocessor testing
  • Power issues in testing
  • Reliability and Safety
  • Secure DFT
  • System-level testing
  • Test data mining
  • Test economics
  • Test resource partitioning
  • Test related standards
  • Testing machine learning engines
  • Verification and validation
  • Wafer testing
  • Yield optimization and test
