Free Keithley Web-Based Seminar Explores Parallel Wafer Level Reliability Testing

(PresseBox) ( Cleveland, Ohio, )
Keithley Instruments, Inc., a world leader in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, will broadcast a free, web-based seminar titled "Understanding the Basics of Parallel Wafer Level Reliability" on Thursday, January 26, 2012. To register for this one-hour seminar, visit

Parallel wafer level reliability (WLR) testing provides a tool to accelerate throughput significantly by providing statistically significant samples sooner. New parallel WLR test solutions offer throughput benefits for both traditional and advanced WLR measurements. WLR tests are commonly performed throughout the semiconductor lifecycle-from technology development and process integration to process reliability monitoring. The speed and accuracy of these tests impact the time to market for new device designs. This seminar examines the benefits and tradeoffs associated with parallel test solutions for WLR.

Seminar participants will learn how to estimate the speed and throughput impact of parallel WLR testing on traditional reliability structures and how to assess traditional test structures for use in a parallel test system. The seminar will also address the source of measurement errors that impact WLR measurements, as well as typical configuration, measurement, and optimization techniques.

This webinar is recommended for engineers who are new to semiconductor reliability testing, test engineers who need to accelerate WLR testing, and QRA lab managers.
