Introduction to Advanced System-on-Chip Test Design and Optimization by Erik Larsson

SOC test design and its optimization is the topic of Introduction to Advanced System-on-Chip Test Design and Optimization. It gives an introduction to testing, describes the problems related to SOC testing, discusses the modeling granularity and the implementation into EDA (electronic design automation) tools. The book is divided into three sections: i) test concepts, ii) SOC design for test, and iii) SOC test applications. The first part covers an introduction into test problems including faults, fault types, design-flow, design-for-test techniques such as scan-testing and Boundary Scan. The second part of the book discusses SOC related problems such as system modeling, test conflicts, power consumption, test access mechanism design, test scheduling and defect-oriented scheduling. Finally, the third part focuses on SOC applications, such as integrated test scheduling and TAM design, defect-oriented scheduling, and integrating test design with the core selection process.

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.
