STEPS: experimenting a new software-based strategy for testing SoCs containing P1500-compliant IP cores

Abstract

This paper presents STEPS, an innovative software-based approach for testing P1500-compliant SoCs. STEPS is based on the concept that the ATE is not considered as an initiator applying vectors to the SoC test pins but rather as a target, a huge repository of 32-bits test data and control commands. The ATE is connected to the functional SoC external RAM… (More)
