Proceedings. International Test Conference  
An efficient crosstalk target identification framework called XIDEN has been developed that is used prior to the computationally expensive processes of crosstalk validation and test generation. XIDEN is mainly composed of a set of extractors and filters that together identify the prime crosstalk targets. These prime targets include all error producing targets, i.e. targets that can potentially create Boolean errors. A methodology has been developed to determine the sequence of extractors and

The effects of process variation and extraction accuracy as well as complexity are considered in XIDEN. After performing a training process on sample circuits, XIDEN produces a set of effective extractor-filter sequences to be used for production circuits.
