11 represents a testable design). For example‚ in the case of the lowest test application time equal to 1064 clock cycles‚ BIST area overhead varies from approximately 130 square mils to 180 square mils. The main disadvantage of trading off only test application time and BIST area overhead is that testable data paths are selected without providing the flexibility of exploring alternative solutions in terms of power dissipation. Indeed‚ a large number of optimum or near-optimum solutions in terms of test application time and BIST area overhead may be found‚ but with different power dissipation.

The goal of clocking the least number of sequential elements was achieved, a goal which was further improved in [57] using non-primitive polynomials with two taps. Other multiphase clocking techniques based on a hybrid single/multiphase approach and on token scan cells have been proposed in [63] and [65, 66]. A mixed internal/external test solution is the use of the recently proposed [19, 56, 121] test data compression/decompression methods. These methods do not introduce performance penalty and guarantee full reuse of the existing embedded cores, as well as the ATE infrastructure, with minor modifications required during system test preparation (compression) and test application (decompression).

Therefore‚ the electronic test industry must handle a large number of issues ranging from high level test methodologies to large infield test power dissipation for high-performance electronics. ITRS [70] also anticipates that test power management will lower the manufacturing test cost by enabling test cell throughput enhancements in the near-term. Furthermore‚ in the long-term‚ decreasing the die thermal density is a major challenge for wafer probe and component test‚ whose solution will also lower the cost of the DUT to ATE interface.
