Intelligent Methods for Semiconductor Test and Reliability

Today's economy and entire society rest upon the dependability of information technology and especially of the underlying hardware infrastructure. Thoroughly tested systems are mandatory for a responsible use of technology. Without test and diagnosis, there would be no economical way to develop new technology nodes and to bring novel, complex products into the market. Summarizing, test and diagnosis form an enabling technology for the information society.

Semiconductor test is becoming more and more challenging, since recent technology allows the implementation of systems of tremendous complexity in many aspects. New challenges are only mastered by combining many fields from computer science and electrical engineering including machine learning or artificial intelligence in a structured way. To face these challenges, the University of Stuttgart will establish a Graduate School "Intelligent Methods for Semiconductor Test and Reliability" which will be funded by the company Advantest, Tokyo, and which will closely cooperate with the branch in Böblingen. Around 10 PhD candidates and one Juniorprofessor will work together towards new solutions.
