Synopsys Inc. announced that Nvidia Corp. has adopted the Synopsys DFT MAX Test Synthesis with Adaptive Scan technology for its next-generation graphics processor chips.

According to the press release, reducing test costs while improving test quality was a driving factor in the adoption of DFT MAX. Proven on multiple 130-, 90- and 65nm designs, said Synopsys, DFT MAX consistently delivers predictable test cost reduction in an easy-to-use synthesis solution. The company further said that DFT MAX predictably reduces test costs by up to 50x compared with traditional scan techniques. The key advantage of DFT MAX is that it is easy to implement and is far less intrusive on design flows and design performance than alternative solutions, added Synopsys.

"DFT MAX delivers the significant test cost reduction needed for today's designs, while providing compression that's easy to implement due to its seamless integration with the Design Compiler flow," said Graham Etchells, director of marketing, Synopsys Implementation Group.
