What is it about?

Our proposed method is to fine-tune the test stimulus of the chip. Experimental results show that the scan-in test power consumption is significantly reduced while the test stimulus is guaranteed to be compressed.

Why is it important?

After the internal bits of the test vector and test vectors are sorted by our proposed method, scan-in power consumption and test application time can be significantly reduced. This is very important for test cost reduction.


in the future, in addition to the proposed method, we will also consider scan-in power reduction and test pattern compression by the combination of bit-flipping and fault simulation techniques
