IEEE European Test Symposium (ETS) is the largest event in Europe committed to presenting and discussing scientific trends, emerging results, hot topics and applications in the area of electronic-based circuits and system testing. ETS’16 which took place from the 24th to the 27th of May, was the 21st occasion of the symposium and was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The event was organised by the Delft University of Technology, which co-sponsors the event along with the IEEE Council of Electronic Design Automation (CEDA).
The symposium’s technical program consisted of three plenary keynote addresses, eight technical and scientific sessions, four embedded tutorials, two special sessions on emerging test solutions, one panel, five vendor sessions and three poster sessions. ETS acceptance ratio was only 22%, which is a further indication of the quality of the articles presented. There were about 200 attendees from industry, research institutes and universities alike. Cadence had two presentations in two separate vendor sessions: Daniel Bayer from the WFO team in Munich presented Cadence solution on Ethernet Verification IP for automotive applications within ISO 26262 (vendor session: EDA for automotive) and Vladimir Zivkovic presented mixed-signal test implementation using Modus tool to implement emerging IEEE 1687 standard on Sierra using embedded design-for-test instrumentation, co-authored with a number of colleagues from both IPG and R&D (vendor session: Mixed-Signal and RF Test).
