This paper presents a new scan-based BIST scheme which achieves very high fault coverage without the deficiencies of previously proposed schemes. This approach utilizes scan order and polarity in scan synthesis, effectively converting the scan chain into a ROM capable of storing some "center" patterns from which the other vectors are derived by randomly complementing some of their coordinates. Experimental results demonstrate that a very high fault coverage can be obtained without any
