Research on low-power scan testing has been focused on the shift mode, with little or no consideration given to the capture mode power. However, high switching activity when capturing a test response can cause excessive IR drop, resulting in significant yield loss. This paper addresses this problem with a novel low-capture-power X-filling method by(More)
This paper describes the VirtualScan technology for scan test cost reduction. Scan chains in a VirtualScan circuit are split into shorter ones and the gap between external scan ports and internal scan chains are bridged with a broadcaster and a compactor. Test patterns for a VirtualScan circuit are generated directly by one-pass VirtualScan ATPG, in which(More)
At-speed scan testing may suffer from severe yield loss due to the launch safety problem, where test responses are invalidated by excessive launch switching activity (LSA) caused by test stimulus launching in the at-speed test cycle. However, previous low-power test generation techniques can only reduce LSA to some extent but cannot guarantee launch safety.(More)
This paper presents a research work aimed to detect previously-undetected faults, either Write Disturb Faults (WDFs) or Deceptive Read Destructive Faults (DRDFs) or both in March Algorithm such as MATS++(6N), March C-(10N), March SR(14N), and March CL(12N). The main focus of this research is to improve fault coverage on Single Cell Faults as well as Static(More)
