					1. INTRODUCTION MATERIALS



1.1 Abstract
        Cookbook Instruction for the Teradyne Integra J750 Test System is designed to help

professors and students to understand how the machine functions in a simple manner. Users

need not read through the whole Teradyne Integra J750 user manual to learn how to use the

system for testing. They only need to go through this cookbook to learn how to use the system.

Through reading the cookbook it takes the user lesser times to understand the material.

Therefore, the cookbook is a very efficient tool for the users who will be working with the

Teradyne Integra J750 Test System



1.2 Acknowledgement
        The team would like to acknowledge the technical assistance from the team advisors, Dr.

Weber and Dr. Chu. The team would also like to acknowledge Jason Boyd, the technician at the

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Iowa State who will explain to the team

on how to use the Teradyne Integra J750.



1.3 Problem Statement
        Teradyne Integra J750 is a highly parallel test system that provides the most economical

approach to testing complex VLSI devices with embedded memory and analog cells. The team

will design a cookbook on how to use the Teradyne Integra J750. The main purpose of doing the

cookbook is to simplify the material in the Teradyne Integra user manual, so that it is easy for the

readers. In order to do the testing, a program or test-template is needed to be written before

running a device test.



1.4 Operating Environment
        The basic environment of the project will be Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape

Communicator 7.0 as well as a hard copy. In either case it will depend on the user choices of

uses.

2.1.4 Technical approach considerations

The technical approach consideration of this project has been split into the following

sections: research approach and development approach.

        Research Approach

        For research approach we try to look for other ways for using Teradyne Integra

        J750 to test a RAM, multiplexer and XOR gate.

       Research on Programming the Teradyne Integra J750 test-template

            o     User’s manual of the Teradyne Integra J750 may provide some hints on

                  programming the test-template.

            o     C++ or Java may be used for programming the test-template.



                                          5
       Research on the most common testing cases for a RAM, multiplexer and XOR

        gate.

            o   Look for materials about timing characterization and verification of cells

                on the web.

            o   Look for the major characteristics of a RAM, Multiplexer and a XOR

                gate.

            o   Seek assistants from the team advisors and professors

       Research on the pin information of RAM, multiplexer and XOR gate.

            o   Search for datasheets of common a RAM, multiplexer and a XOR gate on

                the web.

            o   Search for datasheets of common a RAM, multiplexer and a XOR gate in

                the Iowa State library.



        Development approach

        The final steps of approach are record all testing data and develop the cookbook.

       Summarize the research data into neatly written format.

       Read the safety precaution before begin testing because the Teradyne Integra

        J750 fused is easily to burn out.

       Starting the testing process and record all steps.

       Write the test-template

       Debug the test-template

       All errors shall be recorded because it will help the team to write the

        troubleshooting section

       Write draft instructions for the cookbook.

       Test the draft instructions.

       Post the final cookbook online



2.1.5 Testing considerations

    Locate a group of people who have no experience on the Teradyne Integra J750 Test

    System, but have some knowledge of circuitry to test a RAM, multiplexer or a XOR

    gate.




                                            6
2.1.6 Security considerations

For security purpose user are consider to follow all the guideline below. It is expected to

follow for the benefit of the user as well as the lab.

       Security considerations during project development.

             o   Team members are suggested to logoff the computer when they leave

                 the computer.

             o   Team members are suggested to add password protection to all files

                 related to the project.

             o   Team members are suggested not to pass or show the project

                 information to a person who is not in the design team

             o   is required to access instruction manual or cookbook online



2.1.7 Safety considerations

Safety is very important aspect of this project; it not only for the user, but also the

equipments as well.

       Operator should make sure he/she is grounded before operating the Teradyne

        Integra J750 Test System.

       Members are suggested to keep two copies of every file and save them in two

        different computers. Files updated or created should be sent to all members

        every other day.



2.1.8 Intellectual property considerations

This part of the plan is the intellectual part that each members of the team need to take

into consideration while doing the project.

       While doing research, team members must cite all the sources of their

        information.

       All software used in the program are legal copy



2.1.9 Commercialization considerations

        Since the product is decided for academic purpose. Also due to limit of fund, so

the group has no intention of commercialize the product.




                                           7
2.1.10 Possible risks and risk management

Faults may occur any moment on the project. Backup solutions are critical for the project

to survive. This risk management, list the solutions to most possible errors occurred in

our project.



       Lost of team member - Some members may drop the class during the project

        development. Workload should be re-disturbed to make sure that the project can

        be kept going.

       Absence of the Team Advisors - The team leader should meet with the team

        advisors the day before the team advisors leave town for an update and

        additional task during the absentee week.

       Lost of data - Computer files always need to be in two copies at two different

        computer locations. Furthermore, they are disturbed to all members every other

        day. When a file is lost, team member may take the backup copy from other team

        members.

       Miscommunication - Internet messenger and email are used to communicate

        among each member to keep the team updated on the project. Weekly report and

        meeting can minimize the possibility of miscommunication. Members are

        suggested to ask other team members if they are not clear about on the task

        assign.

       Lack of financial support - In case of short of financial support, team member

        shall ask for donation from the client.

       Short of time - Portion of the plan can be removed if the group is running short

        on time. They include an elegant website design and additional test cases.

       Failure of Approach - Not all approach is applicable. If some approaches do not

        work, additional research work can be done to find out a good replacement.

       A Fused Teradyne Integra J750 -Team member should inform the team advisors

        immediately. It may take time to repair the fused Teradyne Integra J750. During

        that period, the team should try their best to keep working on the instruction

        manual based on the system’s user manual and prepare all the work needed for

        the testing.

4.2 Closing Summary
          The Teradyne Integra J750 is used to test VLSI circuits analog or digital. The usage of this

Teradyne Integra J750 is complex and difficult to comprehend. Therefore, this project was created

to break down the steps of using the Teradyne J750, so that a lay person will not need to struggle

through the user manual of the system. The team will study the user manual of the system and




                                                   26
present the material in an easy manner to understand. Furthermore, a few examples will be

present in the user manual. Once completed, the cookbook will be a very important tool to every

user who needs to test their fabricated circuit on this system.
