The IEEE International Workshop on Impact of Low Power Design on Test and Reliability (LPonTR) aims to bring together design, reliability and test engineers and researchers to discuss the impact of advanced low-power low-voltage design methodologies of nanometer silicon systems on test and reliability. Power and thermal issues, leakage, process variations, susceptibility to envi- ronmental and operation-induced interference drive the development of low-power, process-tolerant design techniques and generate a new set of test and reliability challenges, questing for an innovative set of methodologies and tools

Topics of Interest

The topics include, but not restricted to the following list:

Attraction of LPonTR

This workshop invites the authors to submit their work-in-progress in a form of a 2-page extended abstract. All submissions are reviewed by experts from industry and academia. The accepted papers are published in the workshop proceedings and their authors are invited to present their work as a talk, poster and/or a demonstration.

The workshop encourages feedback to the authors and networking. Selected submissions are invited for publication as full papers in the Journal of Low Power Electronics (JOLPE).

For companies, this workshop gives an opportunity to expose themselves by giving a talk, participating in the panel discussion and/or demonstrating their tools/products in a dedicated session. Please see the past technical programme for more details.

Please visit the links below and download the proceedings of LPonTR 2008–2012. The technical programmes of the past events show how densely the workshop days are packed and indicate the overall value of the event.

LPonTR shares accommodation, catering and lunch facilities with the main ETS, which is known for its high standards. All communication including submission of manuscripts is normally done by email. The workshop chairs will be happy to answer all queries.
