Abstract
This report presents the culmination of work carried out during my Master's degree program in Electrical Engineering. The report is structured into three distinctive sections, beginning with an overview of the fault-detection project, followed by the design of a printed circuit board (PCB) for multi-site testing of integrated circuits, and concluding with a summary of the contributions made to the negative bias temperature instability (NBTI) sensor project. The fault-detection section will focus on using an FPGA, which was programmed to serially load the DAC using a digital ramp signal and observe the outputs of three comparators as the input changes. The multi-site PCB was designed to test 16 devices simultaneously and investigate the effects of electromagnetic interference between the devices. Finally, the NBTI sensor section will focus on using an FPGA and Raspberry Pi microcontroller to control the test board.
