Embedded processors are now widely used in system-onchips. The computational power of such processors and their ease ofaccess to'from other embedded cores can be utilizedto test SoCs. Thispaperpresents a sofhvare-based testing ofembedded cores in a system chip using the embedded processox We present a methodology to systematically generate test programs that test the processor and other cores in system chip. The method requires almost no overhead but provides great flexibiliry in terms of… CONTINUE READING
