ABSTRACT
<p>Testing communication peripherals in an environment of systems on a chip is particularly challenging. The authors explore two test program generation approaches&#x2014;one fully automated and one deterministically guided&#x2014;and propose a novel combination of the two schemes that can be applied in a generic manner on a wide set of communication cores.</p>
