Optional Tutorial
"Beyond Sort, Burn-In, and Class Testing: Post Silicon Validation Hardware Strategy"

John Kelbert
Principal Engineer

Amy Xia
Staff Mechanical Engineer

Tong Wa Chao
Staff Mechanical Engineer

This tutorial will provide a deeper understanding of post-silicon validation goals with an emphasis on the hardware development strategies for boards, sockets, and thermal tools to meet the needs and challenges of post-silicon validation work.

Post-silicon validation's goal is to verify product functionality against the Engineering Design Specification and takes place between initial silicon power on (PO) and product launch in parallel with Burn-in and packaged silicon classification testing (Class Test).
