Yield improvement requires understanding failures and identifying potential sources of yield loss. This article focuses on diagnosing random logic circuits and classifying faults. The authors introduce an interesting scan-based diagnosis flow, which leverages the ATPG patterns originally generated for fault coverage. This flow shows an adequate link between the design automation tools and the testers, and a correlation between the ATPG patterns and the tester failure reports.
