    This book aims to highlight the research activities in the domain of thermal-aware testing. Thermal-aware testing can be employed both at circuit level and at system level

    Describes range of algorithms for addressing thermal-aware test issue, presents comparison of temperature reduction with power-aware techniques and include results on benchmark circuits and systems for different techniques

    This book will be suitable for researchers working on power- and thermal-aware design and the testing of digital VLSI chips

    1.VLSI Testing – An Introduction. 2.Circuit Level Testing. 3. Test Data Compression. 4. System-on-Chip Testing. 5. Network-on-Chip Testing.
