A New implementation for scannable flip-flops in MOS is economical for use in systems that use single latch design. The Â¿System Latch-Scannable FlopÂ¿ (SL-SF) requires two additional transfer gates, two test clocks, and possibly a test mode signal. Hardware pernalties paid in SL-SF can be the least among other implementations with equivalent test functionality. This article discusses SL-SF only in the context of its scan-path implementation; its applicability to linear feedback shift-register-based self-test should be obvious.
