45th International Symposium for Testing and Failure Analysis Conference & Exposition

November 10-14, 2019
Portland, OR

Plan today to attend ISTFA 2019!  

The advent of Artificial Intelligence and the promise of quantum computing are driving disruptive computing architectures. Neuromorphic chip designs on one hand, and Quantum Bits on the other, still in R&D, will introduce new computing circuitry and memory elements, novel materials, and different test methodologies. These novel computing architectures will require further innovation which is best achieved through a collaborative Failure Analysis community composed of chip manufacturers, tool vendors, and universities.

Submit your abstract by April 19, 2019 to be considered for the ISTFA 2019 technical program.
