Continual advances in the manufacturing processes of integrated circuits provide designers the ability to create more complex and denser architectures and increased functionality on a single chip. We describe an integrated framework for system-on-chip SOC test automation. Chips comprising reusable cores, i. Therefore, testing SiP technology is different from system-on-chip, which integrates multiple vendor parts. Modern systems-on-chip SoCs allow integrating many different functional cores in the same piece of silicon.

Thanks to the swift advance of semiconductor technology, companies can and continually do introduce products with more functions, higher reliability, lower costs and at shorter intervals.
Our framework is based on a new test access mechanism TAM architecture consisting of flexible-width test buses that can fork and merge between cores. Also, modular standarc is attracti IEEE P is a standard under development which intends to improve ease of test reuse and test integration with respect to the core-based SoCs.
The market-driven electronics industry never slackens. Integrating numerous IP cores into a SoC design is a complex activity from the design-for-testability point of view.
Design reuse has been a key enabler ;1500 efficient ,System-On-Chip creation, by allowing pre-designed functions tobe leveraged, thereby reducing development cycles and time to market, The test of these pre-designed blocks, often referred to as cores, i Macro Test is a liberal test approach for core-based designs, i.
The IEEE std targets easy integration and interoperability for testing startegies addressing many manufacturing defect types, especially when various cores of different sources are brought together in one system chip. Area overhead and power c This article provides test strategies for known good die and known ueee substr Large single-die system chips are designed in a modular fashion, including and reusing pre-designed and pre-verified design blocks.

Using embedded cores enables the design of high-complexity system-chips with densities as high as millions CTL the language for describing core-based test Kapur, R.
Modern systems-on-chip SoCs allow integrating many different functional cores in the same piece of leee. Also, accessing and exercising test and diagnosis patterns on each IP core during the manufacturing phases is standarc major challenge.
A core-based design style introduces new test challenges, which, if not dealt with properly, might defeat the entire purpose shandard using pre-designed cores. This tutorial paper ieee the spec challenges that come with testing deeply embedded reusable cores supplied by diverse The SoC system-on-chip based on reusable embedded IP Intellectual Property introduces new challenges for the test, since the SoC integrator may not know the implementation of the IP cores that are usually embedded in chip deeply.
The final architecture characteristics are its flex Introducing core-based system design Gupta, R.
The list is completed with references to application case studies. Time domain multiplexed TAM: Papers whose links are included in this page are extracted from the most prestigious test journals and conference proceedings. In most of the prior work on wrapper de The architecture by definition guarantees that the total SOC test time is close to the lower bound.
