A novel approach to testing lookup table (LUT) based field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) is proposed in this paper. A general structure for the basic configurable logic array blocks (CLBs) is assumed. We group k CLBs in the column into a cell, where k denotes the number of inputs of an LUT. The whole chip is configured as a group of one-dimensional(More)
There has been considerable research on quantum dot cellular automata (QCA) as a new computing scheme in the nano-scale regimes. The basic logic element of this technology is majority voter. In this paper, a detailed simulation-based characterization of QCA defects and study of their effects at logic-level are presented. Testing of these devices is(More)

This paper analyzes the deposition defects in devices and circuits made of Quantum-dot Cellular Automata (QCA) for molecular implementation. Differently from metal-based QCA, in this type of implementation a defect may occur due to the erroneous deposition of cells (made of molecules) on a substrate, i.e. no cell, or an additional cell is placed either(More)
This book provides broad and comprehensive coverage of the entire EDA flow. EDA/VLSI practitioners and researchers in need of fluency in an "adjacent" field will find this an invaluable reference to the basic EDA concepts, principles, data structures, algorithms, and architectures for the design, verification, and test of VLSI circuits. Anyone who needs to(More)
