Abstract

This letter investigates the reasons for the current trade-off of test data volume for scan power dissipation in system-on-chip (SOC) testing, understands the conflict between the existing compression method and scan power minimization technique and proves that by using a new compression method this trade-off is unnecessary. When the new compression method is combined with scan reordering savings up to 97% in peak power and 99% in average power, as well as compression ratios of up to 95% are possible.
