The purpose of this book is to introduce the basic concepts of test and design-for-test (DFT), and to then address the application of these concepts with an eye toward the trade-offs of the engineering budgets (area, frequency, power, etc.), the business drivers, and the cost drivers. This practical guide on the test and Design-for-test topics has been developed along the lines of a just what you need to know and how to do it guide that explains the topic, the trade-offs, and relates the topic to the design flow.

The first practical DFT guide from an industry insider.
Skip the high-brow theories and mathematical formulas―get down to the business of digital design and testing as it's done in the real world. Learn practical testing strategies that address today's business needs for quality, reliability, and cost control, working within the tight deadlines of typical high-pressure production environments. Design-for-Test for Digital IC's and Embedded Core Systems helps you optimize the engineering trade-offs between such resources as silicon area, operating frequency, and power consumption, while balancing the corporate concerns of cost-of-test, time-to-market, and time-to-volume. You'll also boost your efficiency with the special focus on automatic test pattern generation (ATPG).
The book includes a roadmap that allows you to fine-tune your learning if you want to skip directly to a specific subject. Key topics include:
Design-for-Test for Digital IC's and Embedded Core Systems is filled with full-page graphics taken directly from the author's teaching materials. Every section is illustrated with flow-charts, engineering diagrams, and conceptual summaries to make learning and reference fast and easy. This book is a must for the engineers and managers involved in design and testing.
The enclosed CD-ROM contains full-color versions of all the book's illustrations in Acrobat PDF format. These images may be viewed interactively on screen or printed out to create overheads for teaching. Acrobat Reader software for Windows and UNIX computers is included.About the Author:
