Vice President of Engineering
During his presentation, Mr. Miller will focus on four key areas:
- How the introduction of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI), and 5G/mm wave will affect overall business growth beyond Phone into Auto, IOT, Laptops, etc.
- Challenges to the industry caused by the slowing of technology and the increasing complexity of our processors and RF products
- Discuss the key statics on die complexity, die size, bump counts, etc.
- Review the market demand for vertical ramps and the pressure it puts on the end to end suppliers and QTI
- Big data, diagnostics, and QTI’s need for machine learning for faster yield learning and for improving quality demanded by the market.
- Cost of Test, probe, other associated hardware requirements and issues

The Growing Challenge of Testing Automotive Analog and Sensor Systems
- Analog testing: while test coverage for digital systems is quite well established, achieving similar levels of analog test coverage to support high quality and yield (cost) is very demanding and a field of constant research, including upcoming standards like IEEE1687.02.
- Image sensor testing: with ever increasing requirements in image resolution, S/N ratio, dynamic range, frame rate etc. testing of image sensors to guarantee functionality and high yield is likewise very demanding. Main challenges are signal integrity at very high data rates, power integrity, combined electrical and optical testing at wafer- and package-level, and testing at extreme temperatures.
