synopsys has dft max/dft compiler. mentor graphics has fastscan / dft advisor. i'm sure u can find such similar products in cadence also.

if i want to have some tutorials on them, i usually try demosondemand.com . almost all eda vendors have some demos there. i'm not a dft guy. so, haven't looked for anything related to that. u can try ur luck there.

hi all,

if u mean the DFT- design for test : then the tools r dft max,dft advisor and turboscan.

DFT - digital fourier transforms : go for the matlab.

There are tools that help to improve testability in RTL .
such as Spy-glass DFT , Mentor DFT advisor , Synopsys Test Compiler.

Mainstream DFT tools can be separated into 2 groups.
- Test Insertion
- ATPG Tools

Again ranked by popularity
DFT Insertion Tools
- Synopsys DC + TestCompiler (test insertion)
- Mentor DFTAdvisor
- Cadence Encounter RTL Compiler (test insertion features)
- LogicVision DFT
- DeFacTo Technologies

Test Generation Tools
- Mentor FastScan
- Synopsys TetraMax
- Cadence Encounter Test

One could further split the market with tools for Compression, true-time test, BIST, Boundary Scan etc.
