Theory of Computer Hardware Testing
ENG EC 752
At the present time cost of testing is much higher than cost of design and manufacturing for computer systems. The course will contain a unified presentation of approaches for testing and diagnosis of computer hardware. Gate-level testing, functional testing, testing and diagnosis of microprocessors, memory testing, and random testing. Design for testability. Data compression of test responses. Architectures for built-in self-testing and self-diagnosis. Self-error-detection and self-error-correction in processors and memories.
