34 VLSI Test Principles and Architectures x 1 x 2 x 3 x n parity ± FIGURE 1.17 Circuit for Problem 1.4. 1.2 (Bridging Fault Models) Show an example where a combinational logic circuit will become a sequential circuit in the presence of a bridging fault. 1.3 (Automatic Test-Pattern Generation) Generate a minimum set of test vec- tors to completely test an n -input NAND gate under the single stuck-at fault model. How many test vectors are needed? 1.4 (Automatic Test-Pattern Generation) Generate a minimum set of test vec- tors to detect all single stuck-at faults for a cascade of ( n 1) exclusive- OR gates for an n -bit parity checker, as shown in Figure 1.17, where each exclusive-OR gate is implemented by elementary logic gates (AND, OR, NAND, NOR, NOT). How many test vectors are needed? 1.5 (Mean Time between Failures) The number of failures in 10 9 hours is a unit (abbreviated FITS) that is often used in reliability calculations. Calculate the MTBF for a system with 500 components where each component has a failure rate of 1000 FITS. 1.6
