What Is WLR Test Software?

WLR Test Software helps you perform interactive and automated wafer-level reliability (WLR) stress testing.

Explore WLR Test Software Features

Wafer-Level Reliability (WLR) Test Software gives you access to NI’s massively parallel and flexible parametric test system that reduces cycle time and increases data insight velocity. The application software includes a test sequencer, device mapping, operator interface, wafer mapping, automated prober control, and more. With this interactive software, you can easily perform JEDEC-compliant reliability tests on your structures and devices. WLR Test Software also provides LabVIEW, C#, and Python APIs for custom development and automated use cases.

Perform JEDEC Reliability Tests, No Coding Required

WLR Test Software includes a Soft Front Panel that is compliant with JEDEC standard test methodologies for WLR stress testing such as HCI, NBTI/BTI, TDDB, Jramp, Vramp, and more. The WLR Soft Front Panel includes an industry-standard test sequencer, prebuilt test step templates for WLR stresses, and abstracted parallelism and multithreading functionality. You also can log and generate reports using the built-in database tool.

NI Parametric Test System (PTS) for Wafer Stress Tests

Wafer-Level Reliability Test Software is designed to be used with the NI Parametric Test System (PTS) to provide faster insight with industry-leading channel density, parallelism, and measurement speed. The hardware is based on up to 48 channels of high-performance SMU instrumentation and an SMU-per-pin architecture, giving you flexible connectivity for wafer stress tests at any test point, with 10 fA current resolution, pulsing modes, and up to 200 V/1 A DC sourcing and sinking capabilities.
