Phone Conference P1450.3 Working Group

Tony Taylor (chair & scribe)
- Dan's TRC document on the D4032 tester
- MaxVectorsCount statement
IEEE meeting clearances
Nothing under discussion or presentation for this meeting was identified as being proprietary or restricted.
However, see discussion below about tester TRC files.
We rediscussed the use of MaxNest as a way to specify once/inline and agreed to the change
We agreed to the following syntax to cover the multiple vectors definition
VectorCount < PerVectorMemory | VectorMemoryPer > integer;
We agreed that the above statement should be inside the InstructionCharacteristics block
We agreed to add two more attributes to AppliesTo: BasePattern and Macro
Then we agreed to do away with AppliesTo and put the attributes after the InstructionCharacteristics keyword
We felt that VectorModulus is now replaced by the new VectorCount statement and therefore should be removed.
Tony will make the above adjustments to D10
Dan's TRC document on the D4032 tester
We discussed and agreed with Dan's proposed NumberModules statement.
We identified some minor changes - removal of tics on simple expressions; use of Ann instead of //.
Dan is going to make the updates to the TRC file.
We agreed that Dan's TRC for D4032 as well as the others in the annex are to be published on stilusers.org.
We identified the need for a TRC validation program. Ideally it should be part of the STIL validator now being evaluated. It could be a separate function. Possible sources of such a checker would be Mentor and Synopsys since they both have to read and perform TRC checks as part of the ATPG process.
We discussed the confusion of STIL meetings at ITC - dot3, dot4, dotAMS - and concluded that we didn't have any better solution than to let Dave and Jean-Louis continue to work out a solution. Greg pointed out that there is a TTSG meeting from 1 to 3 on Monday.
Date: Next meeting Thursday, Sep
Time: 10:00 to 11:30 Pacific
AI-1: Bruce - create TRC for the Teseda tester using the D10
AI-2: Tony - update D10 with above changes
AI-3: Tony - put existing TRC
files onto stilusers.org
