Advanced Package Test Solution for Automotive Market

Abstract:

Consumer demand and competitive pressure have pushed automotive manufacturers to build greater intelligence into automobiles and trucks. For example, the Chevy Volt uses nearly 100 microprocessors running about 10 million lines of code in total, placing the Chevy Volt’s software content close to that of the Boeing 797 Dreamliner. As with that electrical vehicle, mainstream automotive design is increasingly relying on more sophisticated electronic systems.

Automotive Radar Test

Abstract:

This paper is an update from the 2015 BiTS workshop when the concept of a test cell for automotive radar testing at 81GHz  was introduced. After a year of development and multiple customer trials the system described in 2015 has evolved to a refined solution for high volume production at 81GHz. This presentation will describe the challenges associated with advancing automotive radar at 81 GHz from prototype hardware to a production worthy test cell. Including in this presentation will be an overview of handler integration, tester correlation, and contactor selection as an for effective test at 81 GHz. Read more

A Test-Cell-Solution for 81 GHz Automotive Radar ICs

Abstract:

Improving driver safety and reducing injuries from car accidents is causing dramatic growth in ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). Short range Radar-based ADAS operated initially at 24GHz, but the 76GHz – 81GHz market share is increasing, providing better range, bandwidth and resolution for detecting objects.  Furthermore, automotive 0 ppm failure rates require full functional test of packaged ADAS ICs at-speed.
