According to the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), “The need for better integrated usage of this test output (data) for fab process yield learning, maverick material identification, and feedback within a more distributed manufacturing test are all becoming more critical and even essential applications moving forward.”

One approach to effectively managing big data in test is addressed through Adaptive Test. Under the direction of their Steering Committee leadership, the SEMI Collaborative Alliance for Semiconductor Test (CAST) intends to support the implementation of Adative Test via pre-competitive working Groups and Standards activities.  This Workshop will review the AT Roadmap and listen to requirements and perspectives from key adopters of the technology.  After a status of the current Working Groups, the workshop will then discuss and identify plans support implementation of the ITRS Adaptive Test Roadmap.

Latest ITRS Adaptive Test Update 

The ITRS Test Committee recently completed this white paper on the definitions, attributes and benefits of Adaptive Test.  The purpose of the CAST Workshop is to help facilitate the adoption of Adaptive Test through the most effective and economical methods.
