Design, Automation and Test in Europe. If a line is shorted to Vdd, for example, it will still draw no extra current if the gate driving the signal is attempting to set it to ‘1’.
Retrieved from ” https: However, a different input that attempts to set the signal to 0 will show a large increase in quiescent current, signalling a bad part. This has the advantage of checking the chip for many possible faults with one measurement. This is because the observability is through the shared power supply connection. Views Read Edit View history. Also, increasing circuit size means a single fault will have a lower percentage effect, making it harder for the test to detect.
One particular circuts that helps is power gatingwhere the entire power supply to each block can be switched off using a low leakage switch. Retrieved 11 November The current consumed in the state is commonly called Iddq for Idd quiescent and hence the name.
Sabade, Sagar; Walker, D.
This allows each block to be tested individually or in combination, which makes the tests much easier when compared to testing the whole chip. Compared to scan chain testingIddq testing is time consuming, and thus more expensive, as is achieved by current measurements that take much more time than reading digital pins in mass production.
This page was last edited on 11 Novemberat This makes it difficult to tell a low leakage part with a defect from a naturally high leakage part. Another advantage is that it may catch faults that are not found by conventional stuck-at fault test vectors. Iddq testing testiny the principle that in a correctly operating quiescent CMOS digital circuitthere is no static current path between the power supply and ground, except for a small amount of leakage.
Typical Iddq tests may use 20 or so inputs.
VLSI SoC Design: IDDQ Testing
Many common semiconductor manufacturing faults will cause the current to increase by orders of magnitude, which can be easily detected. However, Iddq is so useful that designers are taking steps to keep it working. Iddq testing is somewhat more complex than just measuring the supply current. It relies on measuring the supply current Idd in the quiescent state when the circuit is not switching and inputs are held at static values. As device geometry shrinks, i. Iddq testing is a method for testing CMOS integrated circuits for the circuitx of manufacturing faults.
