ABSTRACT
This paper presents a novel scan cell based control point insertion technique which eliminates timing degradation of conventional control points in built-in self test (BIST) applications. In this approach, control points are encoded into scan chains. Observation points are applied to enhance fault coverage. At each phase, a set of control points are activated to detect a set of target faults. Compared to conventional test point insertion, scan cell based control points improve controllability of the core logic without compromising timing performance of circuit under test (CUT). Experimental results show that close to stuck-at fault coverage by automatic test pattern generation (ATPG) can be achieved by our BIST method.
