Additionally, it's becoming much more Important for DFT insertion to be tightly integrated with synthesis/place and route, otherwise you are sacrificing too much design power, performance and area, or automatic test pattern generation (ATPG
) quality of results (QoR)--test coverage, test time/ cost--with an RTL-only approach."
Although the ATPG
enables automatic generation of required boundary scan tests, there are cases when a test needs to be manually created.
One of the ways to obtain test patterns is to run ATPG
. In  it was shown that the processor can be divided into modules under tests (MUTs) to ease the task of ATPG
Efficient sequential ATPG

Published by the IEEE Computer Society, topics include: internal testing and mixed signal cores, debug and validation, power issues during test, online testing, recent advances in ATPG
, diagnosis and dependability analysis, impact of nanometer technologies in testing methodology, and DfT and embedded test.

(Nasdaq:LGVN), a leading provider of semiconductor built-in-self-test (BIST) and diagnostic solutions, have announced that Magma licensed its automatic test pattern generation (ATPG
) technology to LogicVision.
A CASLAN program can produce tests that automatic test-pattern generator (ATPG
) tools might not create.
Spinnaker offers SynTest's TurboFCE(TM), an RT-level fault coverage enhancer; TurboBSD(TM), a boundary-scan test suite; TurboCheck(TM), a gate-level and RT-level design and testability analyzer; and TurboScan(TM), a partial-scan and full-scan synthesis and ATPG
It follows that the traditional design-for-test (DFT) approach for full-chip flat ATPG
breaks down when applied to AI chips.
