The microelectronic industry suffers an important shortage in engineers having sufficient skill in test development. Moreover, initial formation in that field is too little developed (at the time, restricted to French students with 150 trainees per year). So, there is a strong demand from industry in engineers having knowledge ranging from the simple awareness of test problems to the full skill and competence in IC testing. It is the objective of the EuNICE-Test project to respond to this demand by implementing a European network for test education.
It is planned to take advantage of the clear success of the French experience in this domain to extend it at the European level (France, Spain, Italy, Germany and Slovenia). In this project, the industrial partner provides up-to-date Automatic Test Equipment and specific test training on clearly identified hot test topics : mixed-signal testing and memory testing.
