As more manufacturers use MIPI interfaces to enable bandwidth-intensive applications in IoT, medical and automotive sectors, we are witnessing a nascent quest to achieve zero defects per million units shipped during high-volume manufacturing. This presentation explored the latest technologies and best practices applied towards achieving that goal. It also included a summary of the fundamental requirements for quality assurance and present testing methods for very high-speed interfaces including MIPI D-PHY℠, C-PHY℠ and M-PHY ®; as well as an introduction to the concept of system-oriented testing on ATE. Throughout the presentation, practical examples of test cell design, test program development and multi-site screening techniques were provided.
