This paper presents a swarm intelligence based approach to optimally partition combinational CMOS circuits for pseudoexhaustive testing. The partitioning algorithm ensures reduction in the number of test vectors required to detect faults in VLSI circuits. The algorithm is based on the circuit’s maximum primary input cone size (N) and minimum fanout (F… CONTINUE READING
