The use of the Oscillation Test Strategy to test Configurable Analog Blocks of Field Programmable Analog Arrays (FPAAs) has been proposed previously, solving the complex problem of test stimuli generation. An improvement to that technique is presented in this paper, using the resources of the FPAA to build an Output Response Analyzer. This new approach(More)
Testing of Analog-to-Digital Converters is classically composed of two successive and independent phases: the histogram-based test technique evaluating static specifications and the spectral analysis technique evaluating the dynamic performances. Consequently, the fundamental objective here is to investigate the feasibility of an alternative test flow(More)
This paper presents a high-quality and area-efficient ramp generator to be used for on-chip testing of analog and mixed-signal circuits. An original adaptive scheme is developed to palliate the inaccuracy of a basic ramp generator. As a result, the proposed adaptive ramp generator exhibits very good performances in terms of slope precision and ramp(More)
