The testable realization techniques of logic functions can be used for circuit design to reduce the complexity of test pattern generation. The circuit testable realizations of multiple-valued logic functions are investigated in this paper. The multiplication modulo gates and addition modulo gates are used in the testable realization. It is shown that n+2 test vectors are sufficient to detect the Min and Max bridging faults in the testable realizations, where n is the number of input variables of multiple-valued functions. The delay in circuit can be decreased if the tree structure is employed instead of cascade structure. It is indicated that for the tree structure realizations with m-valued logic, the number of single fault test vectors is three if m-2 extra inputs and an addition modulo gate are added. Furthermore, the multiple faults detection approach of the circuit realizations is investigated, a multiple faults test set is given.
