Diagnosis Using Support Vector Machines (SVM)



Diagnosis of functional failures at the board level is critical for improving product yield and reducing manufacturing cost. State-of-the-art board-level diagnostic software is unable to cope with high complexity and ever-increasing clock frequencies, and the identification of the root cause of failure on a board is a major problem today. Ambiguous or incorrect repair suggestions lead to long debug times and even wrong repair actions, which significantly increases the repair cost and adversely impacts yield.
