Network-on-chip (NoC) communication fabrics will be increasingly used in many large multicore system-on-chip designs in the near future. A relevant challenge that arises from this trend is that the test costs associated with NoC infrastructures may account for a significant part of the total test budget. In this paper, we present a novel methodology for testing such NoC architectures. The proposed methodology offers a tradeoff between test time and on-chip self-test resources. The fault models… CONTINUE READING
