Back-end Design Tools Physical Design: Posted on October 8, by ahmed farahat Leave a comment. Your email address will not tetability published. Dec 242: Therefore the circuit may not use oscillators, and whenever there are dynamic storage blocks they have to be separated for the test.

Synthesized tuning, Part 2: It clears my doubt. For example, the fault model ffor bridgin g faultsgat e ox- id e shortstransisto r stuck on faultsand some stuc k at faults. Then one has to compare the costs of both kinds of erroneous decisions: Furthermore, ffor r egula r structured circuits such as storage blocks, IDDQ tests are not of interest be- cause there are already specialized tests available with high defect coverage.

Please give me any example. But this may not be true for an interruption of a wire. Functional Undetectable Defects With functiona l tests one tries to stimulate a fault and to propagate resulting erroneous signals to a primary output. Fu r the r Parameter Tests Since one reason for an increased quiescent current is that of illegal signal levels, the observation of voltage levels at critical signals is also an alternative to IDDQ tests.

With the IDD Q test method one determines the power consumption of a chip at a stable state quiescen t current. But be- cause of deviations during manufacture actual values will differ from the expected value.


If all stu c k at faults could be detected by IDDQ measurements then the circuits obtained would be completely testable for stu c k at faults with only two test patterns. Since for computing IDDQ test patterns fault propagation can be omitted, there are more possible test patterns for a fault than for functional tests. For example it can be shown that when simple design rules are respected [ Distorted Sine output from Transformer 8.

To detect such undetectable fault we need to go for Iddq fault modeling where you can apply node with high or low voltage and due to stuck fault their will be significant increase in current. In any stable state exactly one of the two transistors is conducting and therefore the output y is either connected to VD D or to VSS. As an alternative approach the resistor can be re- placed by a capacitor. For example, as mentioned testabiloty, the correct circuit should have a very low quiescent current such testabilitu the erroneous current is easily detectable.

Thus the IDDQ method cannot replace functional tests but can extend such tests to improve defect coverage. Heat sinks, Part 2: Leave a comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. If you have any example then it would be more clear.

Since the model of stu c k at faults does not deter- mine a unique kind of physical defect, some stu c k a t faults might increase quiescent current, whilest others do not. I am very confused. For this one may use an extended swit c h level simulation also considering realistic resistances of transistors.

Dec 248: I am not getting the picture.

Such an increase of current might be owed to a physical defect of the chip. I hope you got it. PNP transistor not working 2. Thus the method of IDD Q testing is rather a defect oriente d method than an er r o r oriented method.


Design for testability for SoC based on IDDQ scanning

For testing, the transistor is opened and the capacitor is loaded by the quiescent current. How can the power consumption for computing be reduced for energy harvesting? Hierarchical block is unconnected 3. It is also possible that despite the fault the voltage at the output y may be interpreted as the correct logic value. IDDQ test pattern generation also has to calculate the intensity of quiescent current.

Often such faults are also detected by functional tests as stu c k at faults. Now,Just want to know testxbility how we measure Iddq current? My question is how would you measure current at one particular node by measuring top-level power-pads? Equating complex number interms of the other 6.

Iddq testing & pattern generation in DFT(Design For testability)

CMOS Technology file 1. And while applying test pattern for any one fault will give the expected output and not the faulty output. Turn on power triac – proposed circuit analysis 0. The average value of that distribution denotes the typical quiescent current of a correct chip.

Depending on the resistance of transistor channels, the value of the output signal y results from the voltage divider built by T 1 and T 2. Nevertheless, it is conceivable that despite the defect the functional behavior of the chip is correct.

On the other hand, such simulations can also be used to fro the accuracy needed for an IDDQ measurement.
