Diagnostic Fault Equivalence Identification Using Redundancy Information and Structural Analysis

  title={Diagnostic Fault Equivalence Identification Using Redundancy Information and Structural Analysis},
  author={Ismed Hartanto and Vamsi Boppana and W. Kent Fuchs},
A significant problem with current diagnostic test generation techniques is the time spent in identifying diagnostic equivalences amongst fault pairs. Fault pair distance analysis is introduced in this paper to characterize diagnostically equivalent fault pairs and motivate local circuit transformations and structural analysis to identify equivalences in combinational circuits rapidly. Our results establish a connection between redundant faults and a specific class of diagnostically equivalent… CONTINUE READING
