Abstract
In this paper it is demonstrated how two issues from the area of testing electronic components can be merged and solved by means of a genetic algorithm. The two issues are the ordering of test vectors and scan registers with the goal of reducing switching activity during test application and power consumption as a consequence of the ordering. The principles of developing an optimizing procedure with the aim of achieving a solution satisfying the required value of power consumption during power consumption are described here. A basic description of the methodology together with the functions needed to implement the procedures is provided. Experimental results are also discussed.
