About This Course
This part of the DFDS-3101 Digital Systems course addresses the IEEE 1149.1 Standard Test Access Port and Boundary-Scan Architecture.
After completing this part, the students will be able to: 1) Explain the operation of the embedded 1149.1 boundary-scan test infrastructure; 2) Write small SVF deterministic test programs for detecting open and short faults in 1149.1-compliant printed circuit boards; 3) Write small SVF test programs for structural fault detection using pseudo-random pattern generation and parallel signature analysis techniques.
Basic knowledge about digital circuits design (combinational and sequential logic) is required.
