This paper presents a hybrid BIST architecture and methods for optimizing it to test systems-on-chip in a cost effective way. The proposed self-test architecture can be implemented either only in software or by using some test related hardware. In our approach we combine pseudorandom test patterns with stored deterministic test patterns to perform core test(More)
1 This paper presents a solution to the test time minimization problem for core-based systems. We assume a hybrid BIST approach, where a test set is assembled, for each core, from pseudorandom test patterns that are generated online, and deterministic test patterns that are generated off-line and stored in the system. In this paper we propose an iterative(More)
Test generation at the gate-level produces high-quality tests but is computationally expensive in the case of large systems. Recently, several research efforts have investigated the possibility of devising test generation methods and tools to work on high-level descriptions. The goal of these methods is to provide the designers with testability information(More)
1 This paper presents a solution to the test time minimization problem for core-based systems that contain sequential cores with STUMPS architecture. We assume a hybrid BIST approach, where a test set is assembled, for each core, from pseudorandom test patterns that are generated online, and deterministic test patterns that are generated off-line and stored(More)
This paper presents a hybrid BIST solution for testing systems-on-chip which combines pseudorandom test patterns with stored precomputed deterministic test patterns. A procedure is proposed for fast calculation of the cost of hybrid BIST at different lengths of pseudorandom test to find an optimal balance between test sets, and to perform core test with(More)
1 This paper describes a heuristic for system-on-chip test scheduling in an abort-on-fail context, where the test is terminated as soon as a defect is detected. We consider an hybrid BIST architecture, where a test set is assembled from pseudorandom and deterministic test patterns. We take into account defect probabilities of individual cores in order to(More)
1 This paper presents a method for power-constrained system-on-chip test scheduling in an abort-on-first-fail environment where the test is terminated as soon as a fault is detected. We employ the defect probabilities of individual cores to guide the scheduling, such that the expected total test time is minimized and the peak power constraint is satisfied.(More)
