Unformatted text preview: description and the input stimuli as inputs and produces the simulated responses. Any discrepancy between the simulated and expected responses (detected by the response analysis process) indicates the existence of a design bug. The circuit is then redesigned or modified until no more design errors exist. The design process then advances to the next design stage. 3.1.2 Fault Simulation for Test and Diagnosis The major difference between logic simulation and fault simulation lies in the nature of the nonidealities they deal with. Logic simulation is intended for iden-tifying design errors using the given specifications or a known good design as the reference. Design errors may be introduced by human designers or EDA tools...
