<p>An extension of a previous approach to fault detection and C-testability of orthogonal iterative arrays is presented. The state transition table of a basic cell is analyzed. Five new states are added to it. It is proved that even though the number of additional states in the proposed approach is greater than previous approaches, (five states compared to four), the required number of test vectors is considerably reduced (by a factor of approximately 4/9). An approach to implement the proposed C-testability approach into logic design is also presented. Complexity of this implementation is analyzed.</p>
