<p><div><em>Editor's note: </em></div>What would it take to reduce speed binning's dependency on functional testing? One answer is a structural at-speed test approach that can achieve the same effectiveness as functional testing. The authors of this article offer a formula to relate structural critical-path testing frequency to system-operation frequency. They demonstrate that there can be a high correlation between frequencies resulting from structural testing and those resulting from functional testing.<div><em>—Li-C.
