ECE 553: Testing and Testable Design of Digital Systems 1. ( 12 points ) Test Economics A manufacturer of ICs uses the following yield equation for its product. Y ( T ) = [1 + Taf/β ] - β In this equation T is fault coverage, a is area of the chip, and f and β are process parameters. The values of the process parameters are as follows: f = 1.48 faults/ sq. cm. and β = 0.14 (a) ( 6 points ) For the area of chip to be 0.95 sq cm and fault coverage to be 94% determine the percent yield and defect level in parts per million (PPM) for this product. (b) ( 6 points ) The manufacturer is not too satisfied with this yield and defect level. It wishes to reduce the defect level to below 1000 PPM but realizes that such a drastic change in defect level will require DFT that will increase the chip area by 10%. The manufacturer will continue to use the the same process for its modified product. i. ( 2 points ) What will be the yield of the modified product if the manufacturer does not change the tests and test strategy? ii. ( 4 points ) Determine the fault coverage the manufacturer will need to meet its goal of reduced defect level. 2 Fall 2010 (Lec: Saluja, TA: Ganju)

ECE 553: Testing and Testable Design of Digital Systems 2. ( 13 points ) Testability Analysis For a part of a large combinational circuit shown in Figure 1, compute the SCOAP controlla- bility and observability values for each line listed in the table below. Some of the values are provided and they are sufficient to deduce all the remaining values. Some of the values may in the table for your consistency check.

    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.
