For two-pattern at-speed scan testing, the excessive power supply noise at the launch cycle may cause the circuit under test to malfunction, leading to yield loss. This paper proposes a new weight assignment scheme for logic switching activity; it enhances the IR-drop assessment capability of the existing weighted switching activity (WSA) model. By(More)
Analysis of power grid IR-drop during scan test application has drawn growing attention because excessive IR-drop may cause a functionally correct device to fail at-speed testing. The analysis is challenging since the power grid IR-drop profile depends on not only the switching cells locations but also the power grid structure. This paper presents a(More)
