Network-on-Chip has recently emerged as an alternative communication architecture for complex system chip and different aspects regarding NoC design have been studied in the literature. However, the test of the NoC itself for manufacturing faults has been marginally tackled. This paper proposes a scalable test strategy for the routers in a NoC, based on(More)
Networks-on-chip are likely to become the main communication platform of systems-on-chip. To cope with the growing complexity of the test of such systems, the authors propose the reuse of the on-chip network as a test access mechanism to the cores embedded into systems that use this communication platform. An algorithm exploiting the network characteristics(More)
This work discusses the impact of power consumption on the test time of core-based systems, when an available on-chip network is reused as test access mechanism. A previously proposed technique for the reuse of an on-chip network is extended to consider power consumption during test, while minimizing the system testing time. Experimental results with the(More)
This paper proposes a wrapper design for interconnects with guaranteed bandwidth and latency services and on-chip protocol. We demonstrate that these interconnects abstract the interconnect details and provide predictability in the data transfer, which are desirable not only for the functional domain but also for the test application. The proposed wrapper(More)
This tutorial aims to introduce circuit designers into the problems of making integrated circuits more testable. An efficient test procedure for a complex, mixed-signal Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC), must take several factors into consideration: stimuli generation, sufficient access, single test output, simple measurement set and(More)
A new core test wrapper design approach is proposed which transports streaming test data, for example scan test patterns, into and out of an embedded core exclusively via (some of) its functional data ports. The latter are typically based on standardised protocols such as AXI, DTL, and OCP. The new wrapper design allows a functional interconnect, such as an(More)
