  • This paper proposes a built-in self-test (BIST) scheme with syndrome-compression ability for random access memories (RAMs) with static (SF) and dynamic faults (DFs). A March-element-based (MEB) compression scheme is proposed to reduce the volume of diagnostic data. The MEB compression scheme can efficiently compress the diagnostic data of a RAM tested by a March test for detecting SFs and DFs. Simulation results show that the compression ratio (the ratio of the number bits of the compressed… CONTINUE READING
