Abstract

In this paper a new low power BIST methodology by altering the structure of linear feedback shift register (LFSR) is proposed. In pseudo-random test mode, the efficiency of the vectors decreases sharply as the test progresses. For low power consumption during test mode, the proposed approach ignores the non-detecting vectors by altering the structure of LFSR. Note that altering the structure of LFSR is efficient, and its has no impact on the fault coverage.
