Design for Testability 41 2.2.1 SCOAP Testability Analysis The SCOAP testability analysis program [Goldstein 1979] [Goldstein 1980] calcu- lates six numerical values for each signal s in a logic circuit: CC0( s )—combinational 0-controllability of s CC1( s )—combinational 1-controllability of s CO( s )—combinational observability of s SC0( s )—sequential 0-controllability of s SC1( s )—sequential 1-controllability of s SO( s )—sequential observability of s Roughly speaking, the three combinational testability measures (CC0, CC1, and CO) are related to the number of signals that must be manipulated in order to control or observe s from primary inputs or at primary outputs, whereas the three sequential testability measures (SC0, SC1, and SO) are related to the number of clock cycles required to control or observe s from primary inputs or at primary outputs [Bushnell 2000]. The values of controllability measures range between 1 and infinite, while the values of observability measures range between 0 and infinite.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
