FedEx - a fast bridging fault extractor Conference Paper uri icon


  • Test pattern generation and diagnosis algorithms that target realistic bridging faults must be provided with a realistic fault list. In this work we describe FedEx, a bridging fault extractor that extracts a circuit from the mask layout, identifies the two-node bridges that can occur, their locations, layers, and relative probability of occurrence. Our experimental results show that FedEx is memory efficient and fast.
