Software-Based Self-Test of processor-based systems: state-of-the-art and emerging trends.
Dear all,

It is my pleasure to announce a talk by prof. Matteo Sonza Reorda. Matteo is the leader of the CAD Group working within the Dipartimento di Automatica e Informatica of the Politecnico di Torino (Italy).

The talk will be given on September 27 (Tuesday) at 11:00-13:00 in IT-209.

Title: Software-Based Self-Test of processor-based systems: state-of-the-art and emerging trends.

The idea of testing a processor or a processor-based system (no matter whether it corresponds to a single device, a board, or whatever else) by running a proper program in charge of stimulating the different modules and observing their behavior (known as functional test, or Software-Based Self-Test, or SBST), is not new, and has been adopted in industry and investigated by researchers since several decades. However, in the last years there has been a growing interest for this approach, and its adoption in industry seems generally increasing, while a number of papers appeared at conferences and on journals on this topic. The reasons for this are manifold, and include the following:
  • Deep-submicron delay defects become more and more important, increasing the need for at-speed testing: SBST matches this constraint.
  • The increasing working frequency of many processors and systems, as well as of many I/O interfaces, tends to dramatically increase the cost for the Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) required for their test: SBST has very little requirements in terms of external support during test (e.g. for test programs uploading and responses downloading).
  • Multicore processor and system architectures raise growing issues in terms of test time: by adopting a suitable scheduling of test program execution on different cores, SBST can easily support parallelism during the test phase of these systems, thus reducing test time upscaling.
  • OEM companies often need to perform some sort of incoming inspection test without having the possibility of exploiting Design for Testability (DfT) features possibly included in the device/system by the manufacturer; in other cases, on-line test requires performing some form of test when the device/system is already in the field, and again the access to the internal DfT structures may be unfeasible; SBST may allow testing a product without resorting to any internal DfT feature (or to very limited ones).
  • The stimuli generated adopting the SBST paradigm are often re-used in different phases of the product design, manufacturing, and life cycle, ranging from design validation to post-silicon debug, from high-volume manufacturing test to on-line test, thus further contributing to reduce the overall costs.
The presentation aims first at summarizing what SBST is and which is the state-of-the-art in the area, secondly at identifying the main criticalities in its practical adoption, and finally at showing the major trends and research activities related to it.

Töö teema: "Statistical enrichment analysis in algorithms for studying gene regulation" ("Statistiline rikastatuse analüüs geeniregulatsiooni uurimiseks loodud algoritmides").

Juhendajad: prof. Jaak Vilo (Tartu Ülikool).
Oponendid: Dr. Joaquin Dopazo, Principe Felipe Research Centre, Valencia, Spain, Head of the Bioinformatics and Genomics Department; Dr. Juho Rousu, University of Helsinki, Computer Science Department.

Doktoritööga saab tutvuda siin.

Doktorantide vastuvõtt IKT doktorikooli.
Info- ja kommunikatsioonitehnoloogia doktorikool kuulutab välja järjekordse vastuvõtukonkursi.

IKT doktorikoolis saavad osaleda kõik TTÜ info- ja kommunikatsioonitehnoloogia ja TÜ informaatika doktoriõppekavade üliõpilased, nii riigieelarvelised kui ka riigieelarvevälised. Vastuvõtt doktorikooli toimub doktorantide sooviavalduste alusel konkursi korras. Doktorikoolis osalemise eelduseks on aktiivne õppe- ja teadustegevus.

Doktorikoolile eraldatud infrastruktuurseid ja materiaalseid vahendeid kasutavad ainult doktorikooli arvatud doktorandid. Iga aasta kohta esitavad doktorikooli doktorandid oma tegevuse aruande.

Avaldusi tuleb esitada elektroonselt siin.

NB! doktorandid, kes on juba arvatud IKT doktorikooli sisseastumisavaldust uuesti esitama ei pea! Nemad aga peavad esitama tegevusaruande, mille esitamise tähtaeg on ka 15. september 2011.

Annual admission to the Doctoral School in Information and Communication Technologies is open.

Doctoral School in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is based on TUT Information and Communication Technology and UT Informatics doctoral curriculums.

Doctoral School in ICT provides variety of possibilities for their PhD students to attend short time courses of Estonian and foreign lecturers/scientists, supports mobility, organizes other academic and scientific activities pointed to PhD students and their supervisors.

Infrastructural and material means of the Doctoral School may use only admitted PhD students.

Applications should be submitted electronically via webpage.

NB! PhD students who are already admitted to the doctoral school should not apply again. They have to submit annual reports. The deadline for submission of the reports is also September 15, 2011.
