Test-Quality/Cost Optimization Using Output-Deviation-Based Reordering of Test Patterns
At-speed functional testing, delay testing, and n-detection test sets are being used today to detect deep submicrometer defects. However, the resulting test data volumes are too high; the 2005 International Roadmap for Semiconductors predicts that test-application times will be 30 times larger in 2010 than they are today. In addition, many new types of defects cannot be accurately modeled using existing fault models. Therefore, there is a need to model the quality of test patterns such that they can be quickly assessed for defect screening. Test selection is required to choose the most effective pattern sequences from large test sets. Current industry practice for test selection is based on fault grading, which is computationally expensive and must also be repeated for every fault model. Moreover, although efficient methods exist today, for fault-oriented test generation, there is a lack of understanding on how best to combine the test sets thus obtained, i.e., derive the most effectiv...
