Automatic generation of breakpoint hardware for silicon debug
2004 (English)In: Proceedings of the 41st Design Automation Conference, IEEE Computer Society, 2004, 514-517 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Scan-based silicon debug is a technique that can be used to help find design errors in prototype silicon more quickly. One part of this technique involves the inclusion of break-point modules during the design stage of the chip. This paper focuses on an innovative approach to automatically generate breakpoint modules by means of a breakpoint description language. This language is illustrated using an example, and experimental results are presented that show the efficiency and effectiveness of this new method for generating breakpoint hardware.
