Abstract [en]

This thesis has a goal of analysing different methods used for identifying redundant faults in synchronous sequential circuits as a part of reducing the complexity of ATPG algorithms and minimizing the test sets. It starts with an overview of various faults which occur in digital circuits of different types and moves on to the common testing methods used for fault detection. As it is not possible to perform an exhaustive search in order to detect every possible fault in any given circuit due to time and power consumption issues, there are certain needs for minimizing the set of tests which detects the existing faults.

Therefore discovering the untestable and redundant faults is so important when testing. The overview of both classical and novel methods for detecting untestable and redundant faults is presented followed by the analysis of the results and the benefits each of these methods promises.
