Semiconductor device manufacturers face continual pressure to reduce time to market and costs, yet organizational boundaries and siloed knowledge bases force costly reimplementation of the same IP and rediscovery of the same learnings between different functions in the product development flow. You can create the conditions necessary to break down these silos…View More
A Validation Engineer’s role is crucial in the post-Si phase of the semiconductor device life-cycle. It is their responsibility to define the validation plan, set-up the hardware and software components, debug and optimize the automation, collect, analyse and present the collected data and findings before the data sign-off. In addition to the above responsibilities, should they also be maintaining, and enhancing the automation framework that assists them in their job?
Soliton has been specializing in this area for more than 10 years and has built cutting edge solutions for numerous leading semiconductor companies. With right optimization of the validation automation framework, we can help increase validation engineering team’s productivity by 30% or more - and the right framework would enable validation engineers to spend less time developing automation and do more on their core work - device validation.

The Soliton STS Software Start-up Suite, or S5, is a GUI-based configuration tool to simplify NI Semiconductor Test System (STS) test software development, so you can focus on test implementation. User inputs through the S5 wizard auto-generate the project folder, LabVIEW code, and TestStand (TSM) sequence in the NI recommended format.
Simplified, Standardized STS Test Program Generation.
Integrate NI recommendations.
Custom user templates & Completed test code modules.
Code module reuse across projects/users.
Most software developers avoid throwing away code, but sometimes it's necessary. Discover how Soliton and Cirrus Logic responded to changes in requirements by refactoring a framework for scalability and extensibility using LabVIEW object-oriented programming (OOP). Also discuss properly scoped classes and single sourced data.
Why refactoring is a good thing.
When to refactor your code.
Properly scoping code to meet requirements but still be extensible for future requirements.
The importance of a robust build system.
