78 VLSI Test Principles and Architectures should guarantee correctness for data paths that originate and terminate within the same clock domain. For data paths that originate and terminate in different clock domains, additional care must be taken in terms of the way the clocks are applied in order to guarantee the success of the capture operation. This is mainly due to the fact that the clock skew between different clock domains is typically large. A data path originating in one clock domain and terminating in another might result in a mismatch when both clocks are applied simultaneously, and the clock skew between the two clocks is larger than the data path delay from the originating clock domain to the terminating clock domain. In order to avoid the mismatch, the timing governing the relationship of such a data path shown in the following equation must be observed: clock skew < data path delay + clock - to - Q delay originating clock If this is not the case, a mismatch may occur during the capture operation.

    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.
