English abstract:
We describe the test concept for a clock genera- tion unit that implements one instance of a distributed agreement algorithm in hardware. The challenge of testing this unit lies in its asynchronous nature. We propose a suitable partitioning of the self-timed circuit and the introduction of two scan chains whose opera- tion is carefully interlocked. In this way we can achieve a coverage of 100% for single stuck-at faults with very low overheads in term of speed penalty and test pins.
