Title: "Challenges of the SLM ecosystem"

Organizer: Hans-Joachim Wunderlich

Abstract - Silicon lifecycle management covers a broad variety of aspects and goals which may complement each other but which can also be in conflict. Examples are runtime test and diagnosis versus security, data collection in the cloud versus privacy, BIST versus monitoring or on-chip infrastructure and reliability. Renowned experts mainly from industry will discuss various challenges of the different aspects of SLM:

  • Dan Alexandrescu, IROC Technologies

  • Jürgen Alt, Infineon

  • Sonny Banwari, Advantest

  • Artur Jutman, Testonica

  • Martino Quattrocchi or Antonio Scrofani, ST

  • Aileen Ryan, Siemens (Mentor)

  • Mark Tehranipoor, FICS
