Portland, Ore., December 21, 2019 - Test Systems Strategies, Inc. ("TSSI") today released its latest installment of the enterprise strength design-to-test pattern conversion and validation tool suite, Solstice-TDS 2020.0.
"As the market leader in the design-to-test pattern conversion and validation tools space, TSSI has the responsibility to continue addressing new and difficult challenges presented by the latest semiconductor devices." Said Hau Lam, President and CEO at TSSI.
The unprecedented volume of connected devices with decreasing profit margins demands for faster, cheaper vector translation technologies that can also intelligently handle large volume of data.
"In our 2019.2 Summer Solstice release, we addressed the streamlining of any unncessary iteration in a design-to-test translation process." Lam continued. "Design data should only be read and analyzed once; not translating to yet another language. Verification of the translated data should take place before silicon; not blind-translating to a target format just so to debug it on the tester post-silicon."
In this release of Solstice-TDS 2020.0, multi-threaded parallel processing engine is introduced to accelerate translation time.
"When there's an opportunity for translating patterns in parallel, there's no reasons not to take it." Said Lam. "TSSI tools are starting to be proliferated with this parallel processing engine as we enter the year 2020. And the cost? Solstice-TDS is modular that our customers only pay for the capabilities they need, as low as USD$450 per month via online purchase."
Solstice-TDS 2020.0 is available for download now at tessi.com/solstice-tds. Customers on active maintenance can send in request for a free upgrade.
