Implementation of Low Power Test Pattern Generator Using LFSR

K. Supriya, B. Rekha

In our project, we propose a novel architecture which generates the test patterns with reduced switching activities. LP-TPG (Test pattern Generator) structure consists of modified low power linear feedback shift register (LP-LFSR), m-bit counter; gray counter, NOR-gate structure and XOR-array. The m-bit counter is initialized with Zeros and which generates 2m test patterns in sequence. The m-bit counter and gray code generator are controlled by common clock signal [CLK]. The output of m-bit counter is applied as input to gray code generator and NOR-gate structure. When all the bits of counter output are Zero, the NOR-gate output is one. Only when the NOR-gate output is one, the clock signal is applied to activate the LP-LFSR which generates the next seed. The seed generated from LP-LFSR is ExclusiveOR ed with the data generated from gray code generator. The patterns generated from the ExclusiveOR array are the final output patterns. The proposed architecture is simulated using Modelsim and synthesized using Xilinx ISE 13.2 and it will be implemented on XC3S500e Spartan 3E FPGA board for hardware implementation and testing. The Xilinx Chip scope tool will be used to test the FPGA inside results while the logic running on FPGA.
