Welcome to DFT 2017 in Cambridge, UK


DFT is an annual Symposium providing an open forum for presentations in the field of defect and fault tolerance in VLSI and nanotechnology systems inclusive of emerging technologies. One of the unique features of this symposium is to combine new academic research with state-of-the-art industrial data, necessary ingredients for significant advances in this field. All aspects of design, manufacturing, test, reliability, and availability that are affected by defects during manufacturing and by faults during system operation are of interest.

A detailed list of the topics of interest is available here.

For its 30th edition DFT is coming to Europe and to Cambridge, UK.
