Abstract: Software self-testing of embedded processor cores which effectively partitions the testing effort between lowspeed external equipment and internal processor resources, has been recently proposed as an alternative to classical hardware built-in self-test techniques over which it provides significant advantages.In this paper we present a low-cost software-based self-testing methodology for processor cores with the aim of producing compact test code sequences developed with a limited engineering effort and achie…
