Abstract

In order to reduce the time-to-market and simplify gate-level test generation for digital integrated circuits, GA-based functional test generation techniques are proposed for behavioral and register transfer level designs. The functional tests generated can be used for design verification, and they can also be reused at lower levels (i.e. register transfer and logic gate levels) for testability analysis and development. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the method in reducing the overall test generation time and increasing the gate-level fault coverage.
