For decades, the dominant fault version in automated attempt trend gen eration (ATPG) for electronic built-in circuits has been the stuck-at fault version. The static nature of stuck-at fault checking out compared to the super dynamic nature of built-in circuit (IC) know-how has prompted many to question even if stuck-at fault dependent trying out remains to be doable. makes an attempt at answering this query haven't been completely pleasurable as a result of an absence of actual quantification, statistical value, and/or excessive computational fee. during this monograph we introduce a technique to handle the ques tion in a fashion which circumvents the drawbacks of past methods. the strategy relies on symbolic Boolean sensible analyses utilizing Or dered Binary determination Diagrams (OBDDs). OBDDs were conjectured to be an enticing illustration shape for Boolean capabilities, even supposing instances ex ist for which their complexity is sure to develop exponentially with enter cardinality. periods of Boolean capabilities which make the most the efficiencies inherent in OBDDs to a really nice quantity are tested in bankruptcy 7. targeted equa tions giving their OBDD sizes are derived, while till very lately simply measurement bounds were to be had. those dimension equations recommend that instantly ahead functions of OBDDs to layout and attempt comparable difficulties won't end up as fruitful as was thought.
