This paper presents three parallel procedures implemented in a shared-memory multiprocessor to generate the patterns that allow the testing of digital circuits. The implementation of these procedures in a multiprocessor uses the system memory better than in a distributed-memory multicomputer, since it is not necessary to store the circuit structure in the local memory of each processor, besides other common structures. The parallel test generation procedures are based on a new sequential… CONTINUE READING
