About This Course
This course provides an overview of Built-In Self-Test (BIST) feature, architecture, and applications. It also provides an overview of Structural-Based Functional Test (SBFT) feature, architecture, and applications. In Part 3, it gives an idea on SRAM/Cashe Testing and kitchen sink algorithm.
Successful students will be able to:
- Understand BIST & SBFT application.
- State the purposes of implementing BIST & SBFT
- Understand how BIST complements other test techniques
- Identify the key structures involved in implementing BIST & SBFT
- Identify the structures targeted by BIST & SBFT
- Understand what are Memory Cell, Cache Mapping, Memory Addressing, Cache buffers and
- Different type of memory backgrounds
- Able to read and understand memory testing notation and apply in test
- Understand the physic for a memory cell failure and instability
- Know various type of algorithmic tests and background
- Understand that the test requirements -- different type of algorithmic tests and background data combination are effective for different type of fail mode
