Due to process variations in deep sub-micron (DSM) technologies, the effects of timing defects are difficult to capture. This paper presents a novel coverage metric for estimating the test quality with respect to timing defects under process variations. Based on the proposed metric and a dynamic timing analyzer, we develop a pattern-selection algorithm for selecting the minimal number of patterns that can achieve the maximal test quality. To shorten the runtime in dynamic timing analysis, we… CONTINUE READING
