Emphasizing Functional Relevance Over State Restoration in Post-silicon Signal Tracing

Debjit Pal, Sai Ma, Shobha Vasudevan
2018 IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems  
The state restoration ratio (SRR) has been a de facto standard for evaluating the quality of signals selected for postsilicon tracing and debug.  ...  We present an algorithm, based on PageRank [PageRank on Netlist (PRoN)], for post-silicon trace signal selection. PageRank is not designed to maximize SRR and is applied to the circuit netlist.  ...  The proposed work improves over above mentioned works in terms of scalability, functional relevance of the selected signals to comprehend post-silicon execution, and behavioral coverage of the selected  ...

Efficient Trace Signal Selection for Post Silicon Validation and Debug

K Basu, P Mishra
2011 2011 24th Internatioal Conference on VLSI Design  
A major problem governing post-silicon debug is the observability of internal signals since the chip has already been manufactured.  ...  Post-silicon validation is an essential part of modern integrated circuit design to capture bugs and design errors that escape pre-silicon validation phase.  ...  Signal Reconstruction In Post-silicon debug, unknown signal states can be reconstructed from the traced states in 2 ways -forward and backward restoration.  ...
