Shrinking feature sizes have magnified deep sub-micron effects, resulting in integrated circuits prone to timing-related defects. Stringent test quality requirements have therefore mandated the use of at-speed testing schemes, however, excessive switching activity during the launch operation may result in yield loss. In this paper, we propose a design partitioning technique that can reduce power dissipation during launch and capture operations in the launch-off-shift (LOS) based at-speed… CONTINUE READING
