This allows each block to be tested individually or in combination, which makes the tests much easier when tseting to testing the whole chip.

Iddq testing – Wikipedia

Typical Iddq tests may use 20 or so inputs. 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 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.


VLSI SoC Design: IDDQ Testing

Iddq testing is somewhat more complex than just measuring the supply current. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

The current consumed in the state is commonly called Iddq for Idd quiescent and hence the name. As device geometry shrinks, i.

Iddq testing

Iddq testing is a method for testing CMOS integrated circuits for the presence of manufacturing faults. Views Read Edit View history. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Retrieved 11 November However, a different input that attempts to set the signal to 0 will show a large increase in quiescent current, signalling a bad part. Iddq testing uses the principle that in a correctly operating quiescent CMOS tetsing circuitthere is no static current path between the power supply and ground, except for a small amount of leakage.

This is because the observability is through the shared power supply connection.

This makes it difficult to tell a low leakage part with a defect from a naturally testijg leakage part. Sabade, Sagar; Walker, D. Also, increasing circuit size means a single fault will have a lower percentage effect, making it harder for the test to detect.


Note that Iddq test inputs require only controllabilityand not observability. One particular technique that helps is power gatingwhere the entire power supply to each block can be switched off using a low leakage switch. Another advantage is that it may catch faults that are not found by conventional stuck-at fault test vectors.

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. If a line is shorted to Vdd, for example, it will still draw no extra current if the gate driving the signal testinh attempting to set it to ‘1’.
