  • Patent number: 4672610
    Abstract: A built in self test input generator (BISTIG) for programmable logic arrays (PLAs) providing exhaustive fault coverage, but requiring additional space of only 8 to 15% of the PLA area. The BISTIG contains a test vector generator and a product term control, each of which has a sequence generator and associated decoder. The sequence generators generate log.sub.2 (N) and log.sub.2 (M) test vectors for the test vector generator and the product term control respectively, where N is the number of inputs to the PLA and M is the number of product terms connecting the first level of the PLA with the second level of the PLA.
