This chapter describes and analyzes a methodology for gathering together test-programs for microprocessor cores during the complete design cycle starting from early design phases. The methodology is based on an almost automatic tool and could be applied to generate test-programs for stand-alone microprocessor cores as well as for these embedded in systems-on-chip. The main idea is to take advantage of all possible microprocessor descriptions delivered through the whole design cycle to generate test-programs able to achieve a high FC% at gate-level. Most of the efforts of the methodology presented are focused on test program generation from high-level microprocessor descriptions. A case study is presented tackling a pipelined microprocessor core.

Abstract

This chapter describes and analyzes a methodology for gathering together test-programs for microprocessor cores during the complete design cycle starting from early design phases. The methodology is based on an almost automatic tool and could be applied to generate test-programs for stand-alone microprocessor cores as well as for these embedded in systems-on-chip. The main idea is to take advantage of all possible microprocessor descriptions delivered through the whole design cycle to generate test-programs able to achieve a high FC% at gate-level. Most of the efforts of the methodology presented are focused on test program generation from high-level microprocessor descriptions. A case study is presented tackling a pipelined microprocessor core.
