Abstract
As the complexity of current hardware systems rises rapidly, it is a challenging task to harden these systems against faults and to complete their verification and manufacturing test. Not only that verification and testing take a considerable amount of time but the number of design errors, faults, manufacturing defects and crosstalks increases with the rising complexity as well. Furthermore, when a system is designed to be reliable new issues come into play making the picture even more complex. In this paper we performed a detailed analysis of two approaches
devoted to verification of hardened systems, with respect to the
test set generation: the first one is based on classical Automatic
Test Pattern Generation, the second one on Constrained-random
Stimulus Generation. We evaluated their qualities as well as their
drawbacks and introduced few ideas about their combination
in order to create a new promising approach for verification of
reliable systems.
