Abstract

High test quality C3n be achieved through defect oriented testing using analog fault modeling approach. However, this approach is computationally demanding and typically hard to apply to large scale circuits. In this work, we use an improved inductive fault analysis approach to locate potential faults at layout level and C3lculate the relative probability of each fault. Our proposed method yields actionable results such as fault coverage of each test, potential faults, and probability of each fault. We show that the computational requirement can be significantly reduced by incorporating fault probabilities. These results can be used to improve fault coverage or to improve defect resilience of the circuit.
