2.circuit is non-redundant Function realized by ckt is not same as function realize by the ckt with fault Combinational ckt Sequential ckt

Slide 5:

Path Sensitization Sensitized path : Terminology : Primary input : Line not fed by other line in circuit Primary output : Line accessible to exterior of circuit Any change in value along the
path would propagate to o/p Steps : 1. Select a path from faulty line to primary o/p 2. Assign faulty line 0(1) if fault is s-a-1(s-a-0) 3. Sensitize the path 4. Trace back to circuit i/p if consistent i/p combination (a test ) exist then terminate process else(a contradiction) select another path starts at faulty line

Contradiction Case: :

Contradiction Case: x1 x2 x3 x4 a b z1 z2 A B C E D g i k j c d e f l m h=1 S-a-0 Gate B o/p S-a-0 fault h=1 need c=d=0
Two path hjl & hkm
For hjl
g=0 need a=b=1
But b=c=X2, b≠c contradiction
So hjl not sensitizable & not detected at Z1
But detected at Z2 by sensitizing path hkm
x2=x3=0,x4=0 or 1,x1= 0 or 1 contradiction

Slide 7:

Example : 2.set x3=0 4.Backward trace For G4=1
x1= G1=1 i.e., x2=0 For G8=1, G6 = 0. For G6=0, x2=0 & x3=0 or 1 I/p combination may not unique to propagating a fault to o/p
Therefore the test x1x2x3x4x5=10001 by sensitizing path G5G7G9
Or _1001(independent to x1) by sensitizing path G5G8G9 Test generation for x3 s-a-1 a 1.Path – x3-G5-a-G7-G9-z 3.path sensitization X4=0,x5=G4=G8=1 0

Slide 8:

put x4=0 .. G4=G5=G7=0 For G7=0,
G3=1 & x3=0. For G3=1,x2=x4=0 Now G5=0, x1 => 1 G4=0 & x2=0,
G1=1 & x1=x3=0. i.e. contradiction in X1 Sensitization of both paths G2G6G8 & G2G5G8 simultaneously
x1=x4=0, & G4=G7=0 Test set =0000 multiple paths sensitized simultaneously

Boolean Difference :

Boolean Difference if for all i/p combination F(x1,….., xi,…..xn) = F(x1,….., x’i,…..xn)
i.e. dF(x)/dxi=0 =>F(x) independent of xi
Xi not affect final output.
if for at least one i/p combination
F(x1,….., xi,…..xn) ≠ F(x1,….., x’i,…..xn)
i.e. dF(x)/dxi=1 => F(x) dependent of xi Boolean difference of F(X) w.r.t. xi dF(x)
dx i = F(X) + F(X ) F(X) = F(x1,x2,……..xi,…..xn) & F(X ’) = F(x1,x2,…..xi’,…xn)

Rules for deriving test sets
test set for s-a-0 => xi .dF(x)/dxi
fault undetectable if xi .dF(x)/dxi = 0
test set for s-a-1 => xi’. dF(x)/dxi
fault undetectable if xi’. dF(x)/dxi =0

:

F=f(x1,……..,xn,h) where h=f(x1,……..,xn)

x3 (s-a-1)=x3’(x’1x2 +x1’ x2’) i.e. 001 or 000
110,010,001 is complete test set for detecting primary input faults
For internal faults partial Boolean difference is used
if z=f(y) & y=f(x)
dz/dx=dz/dy .dy/dx [dz/dx partial Boolean difference of z with respect to x]

Verification
Approach single fault in Sequential circuit is equivalent to
multiple faults in iterative combinational circuit (Verify ckt operating in accordance with state table)

Slide 31:

Sequential network Iterative model of sequential network Increasing no. of faults for complex ckt make unrealistic

Slide 32:

State Table Verification Approach Assumptions for Deriving Checking Sequence:
Network is deterministic i.e. next state is determined uniquely from present state & i/p
Strongly connected i.e. there exist an i/p sequence that transfer n/w from state pi to qi
Fault will not increase no. of state . Given state table , Find an I/O sequence pair (X,Z) such that response of machine to X will be Z if machine is operating correctly.
sequence pair (X,Z) => checking sequence. For designing checking experiment initial state of
machine must be known => distinguishing sequence

Slide 33:

Checking Experiment Preset Adaptive Inputs sequence are previously set choice of inputs depends on
o/p of previous experiment Initial uncertainty =>set containing all the states of machine uncertainty vector => Collection of uncertainties homogeneous => components have either single states or
identical repeated states i.e. (AA)(B)(C) trivial => components contain single state each,e.g. (A)(B)(C) Terminology:

Slide 34:

Homing Tree: A node become terminal node if
Nodes with non homogeneous components associated with same node at preceding level.
Node associated with a trivial or homogeneous vector. Homing Sequence => I/p sequence whose response by machine uniquely determines its final state regardless of initial state.
Obtained from homing tree
Path from initial uncertainty to a node having trivial / homogeneous uncertainty vector.

Slide 35:

Distinguishing Tree: A node become terminal node if
Nodes with non homogeneous components associated with same node in preceding level.
Node associated with a trivial uncertainty.
Node with homogeneous non-trivial component.
all distinguishing sequences are homing sequence but converse is not true Distinguishing Sequence: i/p sequence that applied to machine produce different O/P sequence for each initial state.
Obtain from distinguishing tree.

2.State Identification Phase: An i/p sequence is applied so as to cause machine to visit each of its state & display its response to distinguishing sequence.
3.Transition Verification Phase : Machine go through every state transition & Every state transition is verified by distinguishing sequence Designing Checking Experiment
