Typical Iddq tests may use 20 or so inputs. The current consumed in the state is commonly called Iddq for Idd quiescent and hence the name.
Note that Iddq test inputs require only controllabilityand not observability. Views Read Edit View history.
It relies on measuring the supply current Idd in the quiescent state when the circuit is not switching and inputs are held at static values. However, Iddq is so useful that designers are taking steps to keep it working.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Another advantage is that it may catch faults that are not found by conventional stuck-at fault test vectors.
Iddq testing is somewhat more complex than just measuring the supply current. This is because the observability is through the shared power supply connection. Retrieved from ” https: Iddq testing is a method for testing CMOS integrated circuits for the presence of manufacturing faults.

However, a different input that attempts to set the signal to 0 will show a large increase in quiescent current, signalling a bad part. This page was last edited on 11 Novemberat Compared to scan chain testingIddq testing is time consuming, and thus more expensive, as is achieved by current measurements that take much more time than reading digital pins in mass production. This makes it difficult to tell a low leakage part with a defect from a naturally high leakage part.
Iddq testing uses the principle that in a correctly operating quiescent CMOS digital circuitthere is no static current path between the power supply and ground, except for a small amount of leakage. This allows each block to be tested individually or in combination, which makes the tests much easier when compared to testing the whole chip.
One particular technique that helps is power gatingwhere the entire power supply to each block can be switched off using a low leakage switch. This has the advantage of checking the chip for many possible faults with one measurement. Many common semiconductor manufacturing faults will cause the current to increase by orders of magnitude, which can be easily detected. Sabade, Sagar; Walker, D.
