Glossary for the website

Postby Ian McIntosh » Fri Jan 25, 2008 10:45 pm

Does anyone think a glossary page (or pages) would be a useful addition - a quick reference to the common terms and acronyms we use?

Maybe not so much for ourselves, but for any visitors to our site?

That could be useful

Yes, I think a glossary is a good idea for non-members and for the casual visitor.

I've created a rudimentary Glossary page.

If people would like to offer new entries or suggest amendments, then please post as replies to this thread.

Thanks!

Definition of BIST (Built-in Self Test)

Postby Ian McIntosh » Mon Apr 14, 2008 7:32 pm

We struggled a bit during today's meeting (April 14) to scope what BIST is or is not, so we took a stab at defining device-level BIST as a starting point:

At the device level, BIST is concerned with confirming the logical function and internal structural integrity of the device. BIST may be executed at device power-up or as demanded by some external event.

Anyone care to suggest revisions to the above?
