The idea of the IEA can be traced back to the 2013 work when our team tried to help Freescale (now NXP) to resolve a production yield issue. The work was published in ITC 2014 and won the Best Paper award. Since then, we had been trying to automate the analytic process for production yield optimization. The IEA project is a result from our research in the past 5 years toward that direction.
We will put more detail regarding the IEA project on this page in the next few months. Please come back in late October and in November 2018 for more information. Thank you.
