Reduction of power dissipation during test application is studied for scan designs and for combinational circuits tested using built-in self-test (BIST). The problems are shown to be intractable. Heuristics to solve these problems are discussed. We show that heuristics with good performance bounds can be derived for combinational circuits tested using BIST. Experimental results show that considerable reduction in power dissipation can be obtained using the proposed techniques
