This project has received funding from the EUís 7th FP for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 619871.


In January 2014, work commenced on a European collaborative research project BASTION - Board and SoC Test Instrumentation for Ageing and No Failure Found.

Infineon, as the largest chip supplier to the automotive industry together with two high-tech SMEs, Aster Technologies and Testonica Lab, and five European universities: Politecnico di Torino, Universities of Twente and Lund, Tallinn University of Technology and High School Hamm-Lippstadt form the BASTION consortium. With a total budget of 4.65M€ the European Union’s FP7 funded project encompasses an effort of 436 person months over a period of 3 years and is being coordinated by Dr. Artur Jutman from Testonica Lab OÜ, Estonia, a company that has become a world-wide pioneer and technology leader in embedded synthetic instrumentation for electronics test.
