Defect Diagnosis of Digital Circuits Using Surrogate Faults [chapter]

Chidambaram Alagappan, Vishwani D. Agrawal
2013 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
Although multiple stuck-at faults are used as an illustrative example of non-classical faults, proposed algorithms are applicable to any other type of fault.  ...  Classical single stuck-at faults are analyzed as surrogates for any non-classical fault that may have caused an observed failure.  ...  An utmost efficiency of the diagnosis algorithm can be expected from higher diagnostic capability test pattern set than from just the detection test pattern set.  ...
