Course Overview

Online DFT Course for professionals and freshers to build a rewarding and challenging VLSI career. Design For Testability, commonly called as DFT is a specialization in the SOC design cycle, which facilitates design for detecting manufacturing defects. DFT is different than functional verification, which tests the functionality of the design and is popularly known as Design Verification. DFT has evolved as a specialization in itself over period of time, with the increase in size & complexity of chips, facilitated by the advancement of manufacturing technologies like 10nm, 7nm, DFT Engineers works on introducing various test structures as part of the design flow, on increasing the testability of logic, pads, memories, interconnects. Online DFT Course covers different techniques like Scan Insertion to test the combinational & sequential logic, BIST to test the memories, JTAG to test the PADS..etc. Using ATPG Techniques test patterns are generated on the scan inserted design. Generated patterns are simulated and debugged in case of any failures. Online DFT Course is designed as per industry requirements, covering SCAN, ATPG, BIST, JTAG along with hands-on labs and multiple projects covering all the DFT techniques.

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.
