This book contains more than the IEEE Standard 1149.4. It also contains the thoughts of those who developed the standard. Adam Osseiran has edited the original writings of Brian Wilkins, Colin Maunder, Rod Tulloss, Steve Sunter, Mani Soma, Keith Lofstrom and John McDermid, all of whom have personally contributed to this standard. To preserve the original spirit, only minor changes were made, and the reader will sense a chapter-to-chapter variation in the style of expression. This may appear awkward to some, although I found the Iack of monotonicity refreshing. A system consists of a specific organization of parts. The function of the system cannot be performed by an individual part or even a disorganized collection ofthe same parts. Testing has a system-like characteristic. Testing of a system does not follow directly from the testing of its parts, and a system built with testable parts can sometimes be impossible to test. Therefore, testability of the system must be organized. Some years ago, the IEEE published the boundary-scan Standard 1149.1. That Standard provided an architecture for digital VLSI chips. The chips designed with the 1149.1 architecture can be integrated into a testable system. However, many systems today contain both analog and digital chips. Even if all digital chips are compliant with the standard, the testability of a mixed-signal system cannot be guaranteed. The new Standard 1149.4, described in this book, extends the previous architecture to mixed-signal systems.

In February of 1990, the balloting process for the IEEE proposed standard P1149.1 was completed creating IEEE Std 1149.1-1990. Later that summer, in record time, the standard won ratification as an ANSI standard as well. This completed over six years of intensive cooperative effort by a diverse group of people who share a vision on solving some of the severe testing problems that exist now and are steadily getting worse. Early in this process, someone asked me if 1 thought that the P1l49.l effort would ever bear fruit. 1 responded somewhat glibly that "it was anyone's guess". Well, it wasn't anyone's guess, but rather the faith of a few individuals in the proposition that many testing problems could be solved if a multifaceted industry could agree on a standard for all to follow. Four of these individuals stand out; they are Harry Bleeker, Colin Maunder, Rodham Tulloss, and Lee Whetsel. In that I am convinced that the 1149.1 standard is the most significant testing development in the last 20 years, I personally feel a debt of gratitude to them and all the people who labored on the various Working Groups in its creation.

Test and Design-for-Testability in Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits deals with test and design for test of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits. Especially in System-on-Chip (SoC), where different technologies are intertwined (analog, digital, sensors, RF); test is becoming a true bottleneck of present and future IC projects. Linking design and test in these heterogeneous systems will have a tremendous impact in terms of test time, cost and proficiency. Although it is recognized as a key issue for developing complex ICs, there is still a lack of structured references presenting the major topics in this area. The aim of this book is to present basic concepts and new ideas in a manner understandable for both professionals and students. Since this is an active research field, a comprehensive state-of-the-art overview is very valuable, introducing the main problems as well as the ways of solution that seem promising, emphasizing their basis, strengths and weaknesses. In essence, several topics are presented in detail. First of all, techniques for the efficient use of DSP-based test and CAD test tools. Standardization is another topic considered in the book, with focus on the IEEE 1149.4. Also addressed in depth is the connecting design and test by means of using high-level (behavioural) description techniques, specific examples are given. Another issue is related to test techniques for well-defined classes of integrated blocks, like data converters and phase-locked-loops. Besides these specification-driven testing techniques, fault-driven approaches are described as they offer potential solutions which are more similar to digital test methods. Finally, in Design-for-Testability and Built-In-Self-Test, two other concepts that were taken from digital design, are introduced in an analog context and illustrated for the case of integrated filters. In summary, the purpose of this book is to provide a glimpse on recent research results in the area of testing mixed-signal integrated circuits, specifically in the topics mentioned above. Much of the work reported herein has been performed within cooperative European Research Projects, in which the authors of the different chapters have actively collaborated. It is a representative snapshot of the current state-of-the-art in this emergent field.

The modern electronic testing has a forty year history. Test professionals hold some fairly large conferences and numerous workshops, have a journal, and there are over one hundred books on testing. Still, a full course on testing is offered only at a few universities, mostly by professors who have a research interest in this area. Apparently, most professors would not have taken a course on electronic testing when they were students. Other than the computer engineering curriculum being too crowded, the major reason cited for the absence of a course on electronic testing is the lack of a suitable textbook. For VLSI the foundation was provided by semiconductor device techn- ogy, circuit design, and electronic testing. In a computer engineering curriculum, therefore, it is necessary that foundations should be taught before applications. The field of VLSI has expanded to systems-on-a-chip, which include digital, memory, and mixed-signalsubsystems. To our knowledge this is the first textbook to cover all three types of electronic circuits. We have written this textbook for an undergraduate “foundations” course on electronic testing. Obviously, it is too voluminous for a one-semester course and a teacher will have to select from the topics. We did not restrict such freedom because the selection may depend upon the individual expertise and interests. Besides, there is merit in having a larger book that will retain its usefulness for the owner even after the completion of the course. With equal tenacity, we address the needs of three other groups of readers.

Traditional at-speed test methods cannot guarantee high quality test results as they face many new challenges. Supply noise effects on chip performance, high test pattern volume, small delay defect test pattern generation, high cost of test implementation and application, and utilizing low-cost testers are among these challenges. This book discusses these challenges in detail and proposes new techniques and methodologies to improve the overall quality of the transition fault test.
