Wrapper/TAM Co-Optimization and constrained Test Scheduling for SOCs Using Rectangle Bin Packing
TAM width assigned to the core, while the rectangle width corresponds to its testing time.
Wrapper/TAM Co-Optimization and constrained Test Scheduling for SOCs Using Rectangle Bin Packing
The results are given in Table 3 and Table 4 for different TAM width.

Local derivative estimates for heat equations on Riemannian manifolds
Although the standard provides unified core test access methods, the test controller, test architecture, test access mechanism (TAM), and test integration are left to the SOC integrator.
SOC Testing Methodology and Practice
The Scheduler partitions core tests into several test sessions, and assigns the TAM wires to each core to meet the power and IO resource constraints.
SOC Testing Methodology and Practice
The Core Test Scheduler will then rebalance scan chains for each assigned TAM width.
SOC Testing Methodology and Practice
The scheduling results are also used to generate the Test Controller, TAM bus, and Test Wrapper.
SOC Testing Methodology and Practice
This is because more test control IOs are needed for parallel testing, so fewer IO pins can be used as the test data IOs (i.e., TAM IOs).
SOC Testing Methodology and Practice
The analog cores in the SOC are wrapped such that they can be accessed using a digital test access mechanism (TAM).
Test Planning for Mixed-Signal SOCs with Wrapped Analog Cores
To reduce area overhead, we present an analog test wrapper optimization technique, which is then combined with TAM optimization in a cost-oriented heuristic approach for test scheduling.
