ion. Pomeranz et al [75] explored the possibility of controlling more state lines in order to increase the testability of a sequential circuit. They have proposed a synthesis technique that evaluates some state variable functions using primary inputs or primary output functions. The motivation is that since primary outputs are directly observable and primary inputs directly controllable, an increase in testability can be achieved. Cheng et al [76] have proposed a novel method of encoding that… CONTINUE READING
