Adaptive Approaches of Built-In-Self-Test for Low Power Integrated Circuits

Savitha T., Sujay a Grace CH. CH.


A new low-power (LP) scan-based built-in self-test (BIST) technique is proposed based on weighted pseudo-random test pattern generation and reseeding. A new LP scan architecture is proposed, which supports both pseudorandom testing and deterministic BIST. During the pseudorandom testing phase, an LP weighted random test pattern generation scheme is proposed by disabling a part of scan chains. During the deterministic BIST phase, the design-for-testability architecture is modified slightly while the linear-feedback shift register is kept short. In both the cases, only a small number of scan chains are activated in a single cycle. Sufficient experimental results are presented to demonstrate the performance of the proposed LP BIST approach.
