Testing Program and Test Environment
The test program and environment for each ASIC prototype are developed and monitored carefully by a group of experienced engineers at Faraday.

At IP verification stage, with the in-house equipment which covers a wide testing range from 50MHz to 3.6GHz, Faraday can check the test chips soon after package.

At mass production stage, our qualified testing partners run the testing program based on the production documents confirmed by the customer. The final testing report will be cautiously verified by Faraday again before formally released. Varied tester choices are available to meet different performance requirements.


Efficient Testing Program and Qualification
To avoiding the wronged human mistake, Faraday builds an automatic test program generator which can develop the test programs within half a day. The test programs can be fully customized based on customer’s needs.
  • Interactively operational procedure
  • Minimum effort (~0.5 day finished off-line test program)
  • 100% reliable test programs (0 error in the 1700 test programs in the past 3 years)
  • Shortest time to production

In addition, Faraday builds an automatic verification tool to assure the test program and test results consist with the input patterns.
