Test Vision 2020, formerly ATE Vision, has emerged as the premier workshop in the area of Automated Test Equipment. Attracting record attendance from a broad cross-section of the semiconductor community, the workshop features a compelling line-up of papers, keynotes and panel participation from leaders in the industry.

Test Vision 2020 (formerly ATE Vision) is today’s premier workshop for experts in the fields of semiconductor and system test. It’s a high-quality gathering of providers and users of test IP and test equipment, converging to engage with industry leaders to build a “20/20” view of our field’s future.

For 2015, we will have extra emphasis around the “Internet” part of the IoT. We will examine how new devices and technologies that support the next wave of internet expansion are challenging assumptions and strategies for test developed while the internet was merely connecting computers, smartphones, and tablets.
