This paper introduces a new concept of state partitioning and state/transition exploration histories to generate test stimulus for the purpose of design validation. With our new state partitioning, during vector generation, state and transition exploration histories for each state group are maintained by dynamically constructing partial state transition… CONTINUE READING
