Abstract: - —The paper presents a new approach to symmetric transparent Built-in self test (BIST) for word-oriented RAMs. Transparent built-in self test (BIST) schemes for RAM modules assure the preservation of the memory contents during periodic testing. The proposed concept allows to Skip the signature prediction phase required in traditional transparent BIST schemes, achieving considerable reduction in test time. In this paper the utilization of accumulator modules for output data compaction in symmetric transparent BIST for RAMs is proposed. It has been simulated & synthesized with Xilinx Spartan 3E based xc3s500e FPGA device. It is shown that in this way the hardware overhead, the complexity of the controller and the aliasing probability are considerably reduced.
