Originální abstrakt

The paper deals with the problem of selecting registers into a scan chain, the problem is solved on RT level. As a result of the methodology, it is not only stated which registers shall be modified into scan registers but also how registers will be organized into sections, namely how registers will be subdivided and ordered in sections. The partial scan problem is defined and seen as a combinatorial problem, a mathematical formula is used to demonstrate it. The problem of selecting registers for scan chain is solved through genetic algorithm. The methodology was implemented and verified on DIFFEQ benchmark circuit. Experimental results are compared with results gained in other approaches.
