How to enable scan mode in DFT signal?

set_dft_signal -type constant -view existing_dft -port {Top_level_port_name } -hookup_pin /scan_mode -active_state 1. You must need to define Scan enable type, thn only dc can understand that this pin as scan enable.

What to do if TEST pin is not connected in DFT?

If test pin is not connected then it will give TEST-130 warning (will later get connected at insert_dft provided no other violations to the cell). For manual connection, we can use set_dft_clock_gating_pin command.

How to do clock gating in DFT?

Clock gating can be done manually by using std libraries or with tools. Tools infer the designs where clock gating can be done. Commands used in DFT Compiler: compile -scan -gate_clock //inserts clock gating logic

Can I use dftadvisor to test internal DFT signals?

Yes you can, only if the Tester (and DFTAdvisor) can fully access (via Primary Inputs) & control the combinatorial logic which outputs the internal scanmode signal. Would you have the DFT Compiler command that ensures that the internal scanmode signal is recognised as such by DFT compiler? you may try the option -hookup_pin of set_dft_signal.

What is scan input in DFT?

Basically,in DFT we merely check for the structurtal testing,means connectivity between different flops in the design So,to do this we need to have a test input(which is called scan input) in addition to the functional input(normal input).Now a days,flops are coming in such a way,it has both scan input(SI)and...

What is the purpose of a scan chain in DFT?

Systematic DFT, not ad hoc, there are many automatic CAD tools available to insert Scan Chain IP into the design automatically. It makes ATPG easier so that run time is faster and fault coverage higher. The scan chain facilitates silicon debugging or diagnosis for prototype and pre-production chips. But there is no free lunch.

Can I use scanmode with dftadvisor?

this logic is dft_tst<2:0>. i.e. the scanmode signal is one of the 8 dft_tst testmode settings. Yes you can, only if the Tester (and DFTAdvisor) can fully access (via Primary Inputs) & control the combinatorial logic which outputs the internal scanmode signal.

Yes you can, only if the Tester (and DFTAdvisor) can fully access (via Primary Inputs) & control the combinatorial logic which outputs the internal scanmode signal. Would you have the DFT Compiler command that ensures that the internal scanmode signal is recognised as such by DFT compiler?

Does dftadvisor check the global scan?

//I do not recommend the use of the below command, rather you need to specifically define all the control signals as clocks //for regular/non-partition cells). If you specify this option, DFTAdvisor checks the global scan

How does dftadvisor detect if a device has a fanout?

If you specify this option, DFTAdvisor checks the global scan //enable signal to determine if it already has fanouts. If this is true, then an AND or NOR gate is //inserted with the second input controlled by the global test enable signal.
