Functional test sequences were shown to detect unique defects in VLSI circuits. This is thought to be due to the fact that they are applied at-speed. However, functional test sequences do not achieve complete stuck-at fault coverage. Therefore, scan-based stuck-at tests, as well as other types of tests, are typically also applied. This increases the amount of test resources required for test application. We describe a procedure for inserting (limited) scan operations into a functional sequence in order to improve its stuck-at fault coverage, thus reducing or eliminating the need for separate scan-based stuck-at tests. Between scan operations, the functional test sequence can still be applied at-speed; however, a higher stuck-at fault coverage is achieved.
