Course Overview

Design For Testability (DFT) is a specialization in the SOC design cycle, which facilitates design for detecting manufacturing defects.  With the increase in size & complexity of chips, facilitated by the advancement of manufacturing technologies, DFT has evolved as a specialization in itself over a period of time. DFT Engineers works on introducing various test structures as part of the design flow, on increasing the testability of logic, pads, memories, interconnects.

Learner Reviews

I have done DFT course in ChipEdge. I felt this is the best institute to learn DFT. The course structure is very good, tools for lab and 24/7 VPN access all made me learn the full course very effectively. Thanks to everyone, you all really helped me to gain very good conceptual knowledge. And I found ChipEdge staff’s are very patient to all learners for clarifying/helping us in any kind of course related issues

Shivani Koduri

I Joined ChipEdge to start a career in DFT Domain, I found the trainer to be excellent in training and his expertise helped me in the clarification of many doubts, the course was well planned, taught and delivered. Extremely grateful to the trainer and institution for walking us through the course. My next course in ChipEdge is Synthesis.

Mahesh Kumar

My expectation was to learn a DFT basis and able to do industrial projects. The teaching method was really good; Theory & Lab simultaneously is Best and helped me to understand the concepts very well. Training materials were very helpful and helped a lot while doing labs. I feel fortunate to have found one such unique course and enrolled for it. The course has given a lot of exposure to DFT and broken my idea that DFT is an easy job to do.
