The test operation is normally limited to the smallest number of tests that effectively measure the ability of the device to meet or exceed a set of reliability and performance criteria. Diagnostic testing, on the other hand, attempts to characterize the device in order to identify fault mechanisms to provide feedback for yield and/or performance improvement. Utilization of the capabilities of computercontrolled automatic test equipment can generate and reduce data to provide meaningful diagnostic feedback while maintaining production throughput.
