Abstract: Many a time, the PCB design is reviewed for Design for Test (DFT) at Manufacturing house just before turning on the production of the design.
  • Is it too late in the Product Life Cycle?
  • If it is, how early is better?
  • What are the benefits of doing the DFT review early?
  • Can this be done quickly in an intelligent and automated way?

    Answers to these questions are the essence of this paper.

    With Manufacturing Partners being pivotal to product quality, let us examine how DFT and Test Coverage Analysis play an important role in shaping a good test strategy.
