September 2014:
D4T Systems has new tool add-on to model IC dependability.

Within the ELESIS EU consortium, D4T Systems has come to a solution for modeling dependability sensors in-circuit. A first release of a tool add-on, named "DMS" to the D4T systems tool suite is available for early adopters. The datasheet of DMS - Dependability Model Simulator, can be viewed for interested groups. Datasheet and background information on the ELESIS project can be found on the consortium website:

November 2013:
University Twente and D4T Systems strenghtens cooperation on sensor design for IC reliability.

UT and D4T Systems strengthened their cooperation efforts in the EU sponsored program ELESIS. The cooperation aims to introduce model driven techniques for inline sensor simulation into D4T Systems toolsuite "fanTESTic". UT takes care of the sensor design and theory, D4T Systems will productise the sensor design by implementing simulation models into software. The new software enables the customer to quickly evaluate the sensor responsiveness to custom chip reliability parameters without the need to integrate the sensor into the IC design database.

June 2013:
Product "fanTESTic V2.1.5" features STIL and VCD compatibility for better interoperability with EDA tools.

"fanTESTic" is the IC test bench verification software product of D4T Systems for UNIX and Windows. Since its beta introduction in 2011, the tool has matured  further into a valuable product for customers. Latest features now include IEEE1450 (STIL) for easy integration of automatically generated third party STIL code into the Verilog AMS test bench. Next, fanTESTic accepts VCD format, generated by most third party EDA simulators. Importing VCD simulation data in the tool enables further test processing, even without having the testbench generated in fanTESTic.
