A hybrid sequential circuit test generator is described which combines deterministic algorithms for fault excitation and propagation with genetic algorithms for state justification. Deterministic procedures for state justification are used if the genetic approach is unsuccessful, to allow for identification of untestable faults and to improve the fault coverage. High fault coverages were obtained for the ISCAS89 benchmark circuits and several additional circuits, and in many cases the results… CONTINUE READING
