Digital Integrated Circuit Testing using Transient Signal Analysis

  title={Digital Integrated Circuit Testing using Transient Signal Analysis},
  author={James F. Plusquellic and Donald M. Chiarulli and Steven P. Levitan},
A novel approach to testing CMOS digital circuits is presented that is based on an analysis of IDD switching transients on the supply rails and voltage transients at selected test points. W e present simulation and hardware experiments which show distinguishable characteristics between the transient waveforms of defective and non-defective devices. These variations are shown to exist for CMOS open drain and bridging defects, located both on and off of a sensitized path.
