Channel sharing and hierarchical DFT - Featured Image

Slash test time by combining hierarchical DFT and channel sharing

A hierarchical methodology removes DFT from the critical path for large designs. The methodology is compatible with other techniques such as channel sharing, which can further reduce ATPG turn-around time and test cost.
