AbstractWe define the concepts of z -sets and z -detections for combinational circuits (or the combinational logic of scan circuits). Based on these concepts we define structural characteristics and characteristics based on fault simulation. We show that these characteristics determine the numbers of fault pairs that are guaranteed to be distinguished by a given fault detection test set. These fault pairs do not need to be considered during diagnostic fault simulation or test generation. We demonstrate that b…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
